Marvellous Maltesers Cookies

Maltesers are one of my absolute favourite treats. I love them. They taste great, the texture is amazing, and they’re relatively low calorie compared to other chocolate treats. They’ve got everything going for them. So, obviously, I had to try and make some Maltesers Cookies!

Maltese's cookie dough

I love baking cookies. I always use a variation of the same recipe because it’s just so easy and it never fails me, no matter what I do to them. These Maltesers Cookies take barely any time to prepare so they’re fantastic for baking with impatient kids who just want to eat all of the ingredients before they get to the oven.

Maltesers Cookies have such an awesome texture. The centre stays nice and crunchy as they cook, while the chocolate melts and seeps out into the cookie. Gorgeous. They also dip really well, which is a must for any good cookie in my opinion.

When it comes to baking with Maltesers, I really love crushing them up. I hit them with the end of a rolling pin, and they seem almost to explode. It’s very very satisfying! Don’t get carried away though; it’s good to leave them quite chunky.

I like my cookies to stay a little soft in the middle while being firm on the outside. But, adjust the bake time if you want your Maltesers Cookies really soft and gooey.
