This week for Tuesdays with Dorie, Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart chose, Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops on page 85 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking cookbook. To view the recipe you can visit Rachel’s blog.

These cookies went together fast, baked up soft and chewy, and were delicious. I had a hard time eating just one. I’m not even sure if Chris got one – Grumpy had just one! I hoarded them in the freezer, stole a few here and there and the rest went to work so there were cookies for seminar. (homemade – if the grads complain about the cookies they will starve from that point on! ha!)

I made the following substitutions:

2/3 of the whoppers were chocolate whoppers
1/3 of the whoppers were the new peanut butter flavored whoppers
instead of chocolate chunks I dumped in what I had left of the Kraft Caramel bits

I think the caramel bits are better in a brownie than a cookie. I don’t like how the caramel kind of burns if it hit the outside edge of a cookie. In the future, I wouldn’t add the caramel bits. BUT despite that – the cookies were delicious!
