Malted Chocolate Tart

This tart is a cookie.

Or shall i say that this is a cookie baked in a tart pan?

A jumbo sized cookie the size of a skillet, and kicked up a notch with some malt powder.

The malt powder in the cookie is a welcoming fresh take than the usual chocolate and vanilla cookie. It gave the cookie such different depth and flavour.

And since it’s been a while since i had a malted milkshake, or malted anything, i dont think i could have put a finger on what could have brought about the familiarly comforting taste.

And the thing with malt powders, they are salted. We all love that bit of salt in our desserts don’t we? 🙂

These cookies are frosted with melted chocolate, and then topped with chopped malted milk balls. The malted milk balls were so delightful. They added a nice crunch to the cookie, and i really liked how it made the cookies look more interesting. I added Maraschino cherries too,  just for aesthetical pleasure.

Oh, u don’t want to overbake this. These are best when they are soft baked, just so that you can easily slice into them.

Malted Milk Cookie Tart

Taken from FoodBabbles


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup malted milk powder

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon (scant) coarse kosher salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces, room temperature

3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (do not exceed 61% cacao)

1/2 cup malted milk balls, coarsely chopped

– Preheat oven to 325°F. In a food processor, pulse the flour, malted milk powder, sugar, and coarse salt. Add the butter and pulse until moist clumps form.

– Transfer dough to work surface; gather into ball. Press evenly onto bottom of 9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom.

– Bake crust until evenly golden brown, about 25 minutes. Scatter chocolate chips over; let stand 5 minutes to soften…

…then spread melted chocolate over hot crust in the well that forms as center sinks.

– Sprinkle malted milk balls over.

Cool completely. Remove tart from pan; cut into wedges.

– Enjoy!

    ahh. Maltesers are my favourite chocolate snack. It is very exciting for me to see a malt cake. I have a HUGE jar of malted milk powder in the cupboard. I am seriously considering making this tart ASAP.

    That looks fantastic! I’m confused though… What exactly is your adaptation? Looks like the same exact recipe as FoodBabbles? Just curious to see how you put your own spin on it 🙂 Thanks!

      Hi karen,
      i didnt do any adaptations at all. I didnt even realize the word. I just copied everything, including the word “adapted” from foodbabbles.com. LOL. Anyways, i have changed “adapted” to “taken” to prevent any more misunderstandings.

    I love anything malted, I just went on a rampage looking for those little malted easter egg candies the other day. I bet topping this with those would give it a festive look.

    I have never actually seen a tart, pie, cake, or anything with broken malted milk balls on top! Malted milk balls are my absolute FAVORITE, so this is probably the greatest thing I’ve ever seen 🙂
