Malted Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think my sunny bunny rubbed off some good luck, because we now have a signed agreement on the house!


It hasn’t sunk in yet.  Not one bit.  But I’m definitely the kind of person tries not to let things like this really affect me until I know about them definitively.  Yes, we have an agreement, but first we have to sell our house, and get approved for the new mortgage, yadda yadda, you get the idea.


Sure, I’m hopeful and happy, but I always try to maintain a tiny bit of stoicism, just in case.


However, when I baked these cookies, I was elated.  I made them so that I could give some to our realtor.  She did put up with some annoying shenanigans from us, with taking our house off the market, re-thinking our entire future, and then plunging forward again (and looking at a lot of no-go houses along the way).  I think if we had decided to stay put in our current house, I would have baked her an enormous layer cake.


Since we’re now going to be moving (in like 1 ½ months thanks to an early commitment date), it’s time for this girl to start emptying the pantry.  Be prepared for some non-seasonal delights folks.

These cookies are the result of a large bag of dark chocolate chips and an equally large bag of malted milk powder (why did I think I needed 5 lbs of this stuff?)  The result is a soft, chewy, slightly tangy chocolate chip cookie with just the right amount of sea salt to balance out the milk powder and chocolate.


If you’re looking for a mid-week pick-me-up, you might have just found it.

Yield: Makes about 2 dozen cookies


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup malted milk powder
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips, or chopped dark chocolate

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, malted milk powder, cornstarch, and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients, mixing until combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips. Form the cookie dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place on prepared baking sheets, about 2” apart. Flatten the dough balls slightly and sprinkle each with a little sea salt.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for two minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
