Yes... that is a real drop of milk. I was actually trying to do that and was amazed that it worked!
Malt balls are one of my favorite candies, and this week's TWD really made the most of them! These Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops were delicious, almost a candy in themselves. If I were you, I would immediately go check out Rachel's blog, Confessions of a Tangerine Tart, for the recipe!
I had to go out and buy some Ovaltine for the batter and some Whoppers for the chunks. I'm seriously considering bringing the O-tine to work to put in my coffee... it is so tasty!
As Dorie said, the batter is almost like a frosting. It's much wetter than last week's chipsters, and it did a sort of in-oven puff and out-of-oven collapse (highlighting the awesome chunks).
I used my handy #40 scoop again!
The end result was a very soft cookie with a delicious candy crunch. I did find that, although Dorie claims these cookies will keep for 4 days, they were much better the day they were baked.
About 5 seconds later, they all fell into the milk ;)
I really liked these, and will definitely make these again (just need a little time for my blood sugar to go down ;) ) Thanks to Rachel for picking it. Now go forth and read all of the entries in the TWD blogroll!
