Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops


These cookies came out boringly well!  I guess that’s a good thing, but it’s almost embarrassing how little I have to say about the cookies.  I was happy to see that there is far less butter than the previous week’s recipe.  The batter was great, and the cookies came out nicely.  I liked the crunch the Whoppers added to the whole affair.

Let me share a little Ugly Dude baking secret with you:  after a hot, sweaty, extended day at the gym, sometimes you just gotta bake cookies without a shirt on.  So that’s what I did.  Some would say that the secret ingredient was pit-sweat.  I’d say the secret ingredient was extra chocolate.  You decide.

  1. Umm… pit sweat… adds that little salty something? I’m going to hope the secret was chocolate, just so I can sleep at night, k?

  2. Personally, I’m hoping for the chocolate. I can’t go with the alternative. Nice looking cookies!

  3. i agree with caitlin…you should tell your taste testers it’s fleur de sel!

  4. So unfair!

    Men can cook without shirts on, but if we ladies try it….things might get a bit scorched.

  5. Your cookies look great. Mine came out boringly well also… I guess that’s a good thing though. Hopefully your tasters aren’t also readers, cause the thought of pit sweat turns the stomach a little. 🙂

  6. OK, that borders on TMI! Sometimes boring is a good thing, especially when it means the cookies turn out looking like yours!

  7. Boring is good. I’m going with the extra chocolate. I am admiring the puffiness of your cookies — mine were flat little buggers.

  8. I agree. Sometimes you’ve just gotta stand free at the oven and hope for the best. Your cookies look great.

  9. I think you just gave the Food Network a great idea for a new show. COME ON DANNY, TAKE IT OFF!!!!!

  10. They look great!

  11. Thank you for sharing your baking secret. Now, every time when I look at food on your blog, I will think “pit sweat!” 😉

  12. Perfect! A little sweat never hurt anyone. Salt is a very good thing indeed. 😉

  13. they look delicious! I skipped out on making these this week. Probably a mistake but oh well. . ..

  14. Dude – nice job! Hard to post sometimes when you really have nothing to say about the recipe and how it all worked out. Hahahah

    Have a delicious day!

  15. sometimes you need a little boring in your life. although i can hardly say they qualify with your secret ingredient;) at least they look great.

  16. What? Where? Who told you? PIT SWEAT! Thats a family secret! Past down from generations. Now everyone knows. Geez. Thanks. LMAO.

  17. i was never huge on Whoppers but my momma likes ’em so i can’t totally hate, right? – as a fellow foodie, sure you can appreciate this, but since i finally caught up with the tecnological age and got HD, cable, and DVR all in the same weekend all the wife and I’ve been doing since is watching TV Food Network in high-def.. – ah.. life is good..

  18. I’ve heard of saliva making the dish, so I often feel free to taste liberally as I go. I think you’re the first in history to suggest that pit sweat might add a certain extra something to your dish. I’ll have to take your word for it, since I can’t imagine myself doing the equivalent. Topless….

  19. I can get used to things going boringly well on the baking front. I know from experience, when it goes bad it is usually a colossal disaster and I can only handle that now and again.

  20. Aahhhh pit sweat! 😀
    Your cookies look beautiful! Great job :O)

  21. Can I just say ewwww…. Now I’m kind of regretting ever tasting any of your cooking. LOL.

  22. Your cookies are all curvacious and bumpy. Like little nuggets of braille that read “Kristie, your cookies were flat and sticky.” Must you mock?

  23. A little funk in the kitchen never hurt! 😉

  24. Your cookies look delish! Enjoy after your work out at the gym!

  25. Nothing like baking in the buff! Just stay away from the burners!

  26. There’s nothing wrong with boringly good cookies…. nothin’ at tall! Nice work!

  27. I hope that it was chocolate, that’s for sure! Your cookies really look great.

  28. Your cookies are lovely, so nice and puffy! Glad baking went well this time.
