How malted milk and Maltesers cookies were created?

This is what happened to me, I was craving a proper bakery style cookies for a while but I just could not make up my mind on what exactly I am looking for. I had a big bag of Maltesers in my cupboard and I though why not match them with a malted milk powder and make these wonderful cookies!

I knew, I want a chewy middle and crispy edges and I want my cookies big – a hand size cookie.

What else? I absolutely adore Malted flavour at the moment and I thought that will match the current gloomy, rainy, pishy weather here in Scotland. For this season of the year, when the weather is bad, I really have no other choice than sit in my leaving room under a big fluffy blanket. Adding a cup of tea and a giant malted milk and Maltesers cookie seems like the best choice.

How big are malted milk and Maltesers cookies?

These wonderful cookies are huge! I am not even joking here. They are as big as a man’s hand! Proper bakery style size! They are that big that they will not fit in your cup of tea or coffee is you are thinking about dunking them in your hot beverage. Just look at the photos as it will help to give you an idea of what to expect.

I want to highlight the fact that these cookies will spread a lot in the oven so make sure you do not fuck it up and leave a lot of space between your cookie balls.

Prep Time 15 mins Cook Time 10 mins Rest Time 480 mins Total Time 8 hrs 25 mins Difficulty: Beginner Servings: 12 Best Season: Suitable throughout the year



  1. Prepare two baking sheets, line them with baking paper and set aside.

  2. Cream butter and sugar until soft and fluffy for about 3 minutes.

  3. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.

  4. In a separate bowl mix flour, malted milk powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder, mix well.

  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix the cookie dough until just combined. Do not overmix. 

  6. Stir in crushed Maltesers.

  7. Place cookie dough in the fridge for at least 8 hours, up to 48 hours.

  8. When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 160C Fan.

  9. Divide your cookie dough into balls, 70 grams each. I used kitchen scale to weigh my cookie dough so my cookies are the same size and can bake consistently.

  10. Place cookie balls on the prepared sheets few centimeters from each other. Cookies will spread a lot!

  11. I baked four cookies on one sheet.

  12. Bake cookies for 10 minutes and remove  from the oven.

  13. Let the cookies cool down on baking sheet and then transfer cookies on a cooling rack.

  14. IMPORTANT: do not overbake the cookies as they will be hard. When you remove cookies from your oven the will look puffed up but will deflate as they cool down.

  15. Store cookies in an air- tight container for up to a week or in the freezer up to 3 months.
