Malted Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Last night, there were some big storms rolling into the area, and I was WIDE awake. (I love pregnancy hormones... sometimes I have complete insomnia, and sometimes I am surprised I make it to bed before I fall asleep.)  What's a pregnant lady to do, late at night when the house is quite.... except make cookies! 

I'd seen this new recipe on one of the blogs I follow, that called for malted milk powder in the cookies. Hmmm, that's worth a try! I had put it on my grocery list a few weeks ago for whenever I got the urge to make cookies (and it's not 80 degrees in my house), so I even had everything on hand!

Let me first say that these cookies are REALLY good. Not my favorite, but really good. I haven't decided if the malted milk powder really adds anything or not.... I guess I will need to keep eating them to decide. ;)

I also changed it up a bit and added peanut butter chips.... chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorite combos! 

Let me know if you try these; I would love to hear what you think!
