Whopper Cookie Bars

Whopper Cookie Bars
So these bars are over the top delicious.

Sometimes I post recipes that are great. And then sometimes there is a recipe that is PHENOMENAL. This is that kind of recipe.
Whopper Cookie Bars
Making a cookie base with malted milk powder (the original flavor stuff) adds a nice chewy base. Then top it with incredible fudge. 

YES fudge.

Oh, and you might as well add a box of chopped Whoppers too. (or save this recipe for after Halloween when you get all those goofy little packages of whoppers)!
Whopper Cookie Bars
After these bars set, some of the whoppers that are set deep in the fudge lose their crispiness. While you might think that is a bad thing….it’s so NOT bad at all. In fact, it enhances the chewy fudgy cookie!

TRY THEM. K?

Like these Whopper Cookie Bars? Then you should check out these similar recipes….

Whopper Cookies- crush your whoppers extra fine to give a chewy texture to these cookies, but also add in some lightly chopped whoppers for flavor! So good.

Chubby Hubby Bars- Malted cookie base topped with fudge, chocolate covered pretzels, and peanut butter.

Chocolate Chip Toffee Fudge Bar- just a decadent cookie bar with a layer of fudge and toffee, that’s all.

Malted cookie bar base topped with a thick chocolate malt fudge layer and topped with Whopper candies! ENJOY!

Ingredients

    For the Cookie Base:
  • 3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 2Tbsp skim milk
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup malted milk powder (Original, not chocolate)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • For the Topping:
  • 12oz pkg milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 can ((14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup Ovaltine chocolate malt powder
  • 12oz box Whoppers, slightly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In large mixing bowl, beat crisco, milk and brown sugar until combined. Add egg and beat until fully combined. Slowly beat in malted milk powder, flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. Press cookie dough into a large baking sheet with one inch sides. I used a 15 1/2 x 10inch pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes until browned. Remove from oven.
  4. Meanwhile, in large sauce pan, heat sweetened condensed milk over low heat. Add in milk chocolate and heat until smooth, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and whisk in ovaltine powder. Pour into prepared cookie crust.
  5. Pour whoppers into a large ziploc bag. Lay bag on a cutting board and whack it 2-3 times with a frying pan. Don’t pulverize the whoppers, and it’s okay if some are still whole. Press whoppers into fudge layer.
  6. Refrigerate cookies for 2 hours or overnight. Cut into squares. ENJOY!

I have always loved whoppers and malt flavor. It has been so long since I have had either…I better put them on my shopping list for these bars because chewy and fudgy bars is something I need to embrace!

oh my goodness Aimee! Whoopers are one of my favorite candies! My grandpa always brings up a huge tin full of giant gourmet whoopers/malted milk balls for christmas time. Eating them always reminds me of him! I’ve never put them in a dessert before, but I love the cookie base of these, including malted milk powder. So lovely!

Yum! Printing this one! Is the malted milk powder used in the cookie base the same thing as the Ovaltine in the topping or is that something different?
Thanks :)

Malted milk powder is similar to ovaltine. Ovaltine is chocolate flavored. You can usually find the original flavor right next to it in the grocery store, I buy Carnation brand. Hope this helps!

Ooo, what are Whoppers? I’m intrigued? What’s the closest thing to sub with [as we don't get Whoppers here]? As for the malted milk powder, I’m assuming this is the same thing as you find in the drinks aisle next to the hot chocolate where you mix it with boiling water usually at night before bed, is that right?

Whoppers are the same as Malteasers, only Malteasers taste much better.

These look so good and I definitely want to make them. I’m wondering if I could use butter instead of Crisco?

Have to be honest…I’m sick of all of the candy in cookies I see. Maybe because I think most miss the boat. But Whoppers? I’m a grown woman for crying out loud and if I come near them in the grocery store? In the cart they go. These look sinfully wonderful, a candy treat worthy of being reborn in a bar!

Liz October 25, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I love, love, love Whoppers! This looks like an amazing dessert that I will definitely have to make SOON!
