Malted White Chocolate Kit Kat Cookies

I know, right?

White Chocolate Kit Kat Cookies. With Malt. And there’s even a nice amount of super dark chocolate chips thrown in to rein in the sweetness and deliver a chocolaty punch.

Gimme. A. Break.

The cookies were actually a series of happy accidents. Sure, I set out to make cookies with the White Chocolate Kit Kats. THAT was no accident. But once I got started, I kept running in to things that required me to change the recipe I thought I was going to use. I was planning on just changing up my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I ended up way off the recipe. As in way, waaay off. I had one egg, the recipe called for two. I needed light brown sugar, I had dark. One thing after another led to quite possibly the best cookie recipe I have created in ages.

Nay, ever?


Take a peek, make ‘em yourself. I doubt you’ll be sorry.
