It’s been a bit chilly around the Northwest lately. Nothing like those single digits my kid’s are experiencing in Utah though. But any time the cold weather comes it totally puts me in a chocolate chip cookie mood. Actually warm weather puts in the chocolate chip cookie mood too – any weather can do it!

I love changing up my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe a bit – adding different mix ins etc. Today’s recipe is packed with lots of amazing flavors! Triple Chocolate Chip Malt Cookies with Sea Salt have three kinds of chocolate, malt and a little sea salt to top it off.

The malt adds another dimension to the cookie that I really love. I am a big fan of malt but even if you aren’t you will love these cookies as there is not a strong malt flavor but just an added level of flavor that is wonderful!

I am a big fan of milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in my cookies but combine that with semi sweet chocolate and you’ve got all your bases covered.

A light sprinkling of sea salt on top just gives it that extra little flavor surprise in your mouth!

    I loooove these! Not a fan of white chocolate, so in goes extra dark chocolate! No loss there, and I usually omit the salt too, but they are still a fantastic go to chocolate chip cookie recipe, and the malt just adds that certain something, something!
    Bless you little chocolate chip, malted heart! :0)

    Maybe I just have never looked for it, but where do I buy the malt powder? Is it just in the baking isle?
