I personally LOVE malt flavor. I was also seriously craving cookies. A while back Neslte had sent me some coupons for Ovaltine and I picked up a can of the malted flavor. We drank it all, then picked up another one, then another one….
It felt like fall out and so it seemed appropriate for some reason to me to make cookies and experiment a little with the Ovaltine. I actually came up with this recipe on my own!
Malted Chocolate Ovaltine Cookies
- 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
- 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Ovaltine malted milk flavor
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks or chips
In a large bowl beat shortening and brown sugar. Add Ovaltine, vanilla and egg. In separate bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to wet mixture, stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookies onto cookie sheet, bake at 375 for about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheet and remove.
The flavor is really good I think because of the shortening, they are crisp on the edges and soft in the middle! The Ovaltine provides just the right amount of chocolate and malt flavor, plus adds the extra nutrients.
I would love to give 4 readers a coupon for a free can of Ovaltine from Nestle for you to make your own cookies! Leave me a comment telling us if you have tried Ovaltine before and the kids will pick 4 winners on Tuesday after school.
The fine print: Nestle provided me with Ovaltine to try and with coupons to give to my readers. These opinions are my own and if I hated the stuff I would tell you!
