Malted Milk Ball Cookies Recipe

Do you love cookies? Looking for a new twist? If so, you gotta try out these Malted Milk Ball Cookies! This is one of our favorite cookie recipes! We love milk balls candy so this is another great way that my family can enjoy them...in cookies!

Malted Milk Ball Cookies Recipe

3/4 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable cooking oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 c. whole bran cereal
3 cups malted milk balls, crushed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with electric mixer on high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until well combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour and cereal by hand. Reserve 1/2 cups crushed malted milk balls to sprinkle on top. Stir in remaining malted milk balls. Shape dough into 1 1/2" balls. Place balls 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Place cookie sheet on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle tops of warm cookies with reserved crushed malted milk balls. Cool on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring cookies to wire rack to cool.
