Expert Tips

  • Don’t Overbake: Keep an eye on your cookies and take them out when they are just lightly golden. They will keep cooking a little bit even after you take them out of the oven.
  • Sugar Selection – Mix white and brown sugar for extra moist and flavorful cookies.

Optional

  • Malted Milk Powder: Enhances the malt flavor to complement the crushed whopper eggs. Mix 2 tablespoons into the flour before combining with wet ingredients for a richer, malted taste.
  • Chocolate Chips: Adding chocolate chips enhances the cookies’ texture with extra gooeyness and introduces a richer chocolate flavor. Mix them into the batter along with the crushed Whopper eggs for a chocolate twist.

Substitutions

  • Cocoa Powder: Can be added to the cookie dough, to create a rich, chocolatey Mini Egg Whopper Cookies, complementing the malted Whopper Eggs.

Storage Instructions

  • Refrigeration (Optional): Most cookies, like Whopper cookies, don’t need refrigeration. Store in an airtight container at room temp to preserve texture and flavor. Include bread or an apple slice to keep cookies soft.
  • Freezing (Unbaked Dough): To freeze unbaked Whopper cookie dough, shape into portions, freeze on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag. Label with the date and store up to 2-3 months. Bake from frozen, adjusting baking time.
  • Freezing (Baked Cookies): For baked Whopper cookies, cool completely before storing. Place in a single layer in a freezer-safe container or wrap individually with plastic. Label with the date and store for 2-3 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
