Malted chocolate cookies with white chocolate and almonds

These cookies are great even without the white chocolate and sugar pearl garnish. The red and green give it a bit more of a festive twist.

Malted chocolate cookies with white chocolate and almonds


  • 50g butter
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp Ovaltine
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 100g almond slivers
  • 150g white chocolate
  • Green and red sugar pearls


  1. Melt the chocolate and the butter and mix until smooth and shiny.
  2. Add the condensed milk and mix well.
  3. Add the ground almonds and the Ovaltine and mix well.
  4. Leave to harden a little in the fridge for 30 mins until stiff but still pliable.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  6. Cut the white chocolate into chips and add to the dough along with the almond slivers.
  7. Roll into balls, flatten and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  8. Bake for 12 mins. The cookies will still seem soft but will continue to harden whilst they cool.
  9. Allow to cool for 10 mins on the baking tray, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Melt the remaining white chocolate in a small bowl.
  11. Dip half of the cookie into the white chocolate and add sugar pearls. Allow the chocolate to set and store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
