Robin Eggs Malted Milk Pudding Cookies

Robin Eggs Malted Milk Cookies
     One of my favorite Easter candies is Robin Eggs. For those of you who by rare chance might not have heard of them, they are malted candies surrounded by a chocolatey crunchy shell.
     I wanted to incorporate Robin Eggs into a cookie, so I used My Mom’s Pudding Chip Cookies as a base. I switched up the french vanilla pudding with white chocolate and decreased the flour, adding malted milk powder in its place. Using a one tablespoon cookie scooper and a whole bag of Mini Robin Eggs, I placed four eggs on top of each scoop of dough.
     The resulting cookies are a bit flatter than traditional chocolate chip cookies, most likely due to the malted milk powder. They are incredibly sweet, soft, and slightly chewy. The Robin Eggs still taste fantastic after baking. I believe this will become a new Easter season staple in my house.
