TWD: Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops

I have to admit, I was very skeptical of this weeks recipe. Rachel from Confessions from a Tangerine Tart chose Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops. I immediately thought "well crap, I hate whoppers!" When I was telling my husband about this recipe, he got super excited - turns out he LOVES whoppers. So, for the sake of TWD and my husband, I bought the whoppers and got cracking on the recipe.


Reviews:

ME- I thought they were just okay. I would have preferred them without the whopper pieces, because they kind of caramalized in the cookie. The cookie was nice and cake-like and had great chocolate flavor, I just wasn't in love with the whopper chunks.

HUSBAND- He loved them. Really, really loved them!


Head over to Tuesdays with Dorie to check out all the entries for the week!

oh the sacrifices we make for our loved ones. :) i liked them even though the whoppers became a little like toffee, but i know lots of people weren't crazy about them.

With Halloween around the corner, I'm definitely hanging on to this cookie idea... especially when I can snag some candy on clearance once the trick or treating days pass!

Hahaha glad the hubby loved them and sorry you didn't love them so much! I wasn't much of a fan, either!

We had the same thing going on here. I thought they were kind of meh, but Jeff wants more. Must appeal to that Y chromosome. ;)

I just made some ice cream sandwiches and inhaled them. So friggin good! But I know some ppl were not fans either. Oh well.

I totally agree, the cookie was awesome...if you just leave out those silly Whoppers!
