Get ready for the Spring and Easter by breaking out your baking sheets and whip up a batch of these beautiful cookies.

These Malted Robin Egg Cookies only use a few simple ingredients along with my favorite, Whoppers Malted Robin Egg candies.

The result is a super soft cookie with that unique flavor combination of malt and chocolate.

They really are THAT good!

For me, I made them extra big and that is the look I was going for. But you can use a smaller scoop or easily double the recipe to make more cookies.

I will warn you, they do go fast!
