Yes, they are as sinful and as addictive as the name suggested! You can’t stop at one, that’s for sure. It’s that sweet, malty, salty, and gooey nutella centered combo that makes you reach out for more! You might want to try sprinkling some sea salt flakes on top of the cookies while it is still hot.
Ingredients (Makes about 20 cookies)
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 and 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup milo (Or any malted powder like horlick, ovaltine etc..)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 125g unsalted butter, soften
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp salt
Melt butter over med heat. Swirling every now and then. As the butter melts, it will bubble up, and slowly change colour. Remove from heat when it turns brown and gives off a nutty smell.
Leave to cool.
When butter is browned butter is cool enough to touch…
Pour into mixing bowl, add sugar, and vanilla extract.
Then add the egg.
And mix well.
In another mixing bowl, whisk together baking powder, milo, salt, and flour.
Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.
Mix well until dough is formed.
Chill dough for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 180C.
Take about 1 tbsp of cookie dough, flatten it in palm with a ‘well’ in the middle.
Drop a dollop about 1 tsp of nutella in the middle.
This gets a bit messy! Then wrap and seal the nutella as best as you can.
Roll dough into a ball and place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for about 12 mins.
Let it rest for 5 mins before leaving to cool completely on a wire rack.
