chocolate malted whopper drops


I’m a pusher, plain and simple. My friends can vouch for this and you, gentle readers, probably can, too.

The thing is, we all work hard. I don’t care if you do a 9-5 office-type job, a stand-on-your-feet-all-day job, a mom job, a dad job, a super-secret-spy job: you are working your butt off. And you deserve to treat yo-self! Sometimes that means a new purse. Other times, a relaxing vacation. In my world, it almost always means baked goods.

To me, there are few desserts more perfect than a delicious, chocolatey cookie. Which is why Dorie Greenspan’s Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops totally siren-songed me. How can I resist chocolate and my FAVORITE candy (Whopper it up!) rolled into a single, amazing treat? The answer is, I can’t. So I made a full batch of these to share at work…not before I sampled a few, of course. Safety first.

These are really simple to pull together. Just 10 or 15 minutes of your time will produce a bowl of sweet, sweet batter. And three batches of cookies later, you’ll have a fantastic display of chocolate discs almost too pretty to eat. Almost being the operative word.

I tried these with a glass of cold milk and a cup of coffee. Both were fantastic. And, hey, you can’t go wrong with a cookie served over some vanilla bean ice cream. YUM.

So what are you waiting for?
