Tasty Tuesday: Fair Trade Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treat Cookies

These are amazing! I have tried a lot of different variations of fair trade chocolate chip cookies these past several months for Tasty Tuesday recipes so I feel I know a really great cookie when I eat one! As of right now, the Rice Krispies Treat Cookie featured in this posting and the Buttered Fair Trade Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies from a few months back are my favorites. The popcorn and the rice krispies add a little unusual texture and the taste is magnificent! This week’s recipe is very simple and was a big hit amongst my family (and incidentally, even three months later friends ask when I am making the popcorn cookies again).

Fair Trade Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

For this Tasty Tuesday I’m making Fair Trade Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies! For this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, I used different chocolate chips (last time I used SunSpire’s Fair Trade 42% Cacao Chips) and a recipe from another favorite blogger; this time it was The Pioneer Woman and I have to say with all honesty these fair trade chocolate chip cookies were amazing!!! The Guittard fair trade chocolate chips were even better than the last ones and the recipe was just great and simple; two of my favorite things.

The recipe I followed was the Pioneer Woman’s “Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies”, she used plain malted milk powder and I used chocolate malted milk powder. Two things worried me about this recipe: 1) would it be too malty and 2) would my addition of chocolate malt powder be too chocolate-y (if there is such a thing). The answer is NO, not too malty and not too chocolate-y, they were awesome!

And just a quick aside, I only baked the cookies for 10 minutes because I enjoy a more chewy than crispy cookie and these fair trade chocolate chip cookies came out perfectly!
