These cookies have crushed malted milk balls in every bite, making them one of my favorite cookies of all time.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened; do not substitute
3/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 
2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour; spoon into measuring cup and level to rim
2 tablespoons instant chocolate drink mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups malted milk balls, finely crushed

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, chocolate drink mix, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
Stir in crushed malted milk balls. Shape into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place 2-inches apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until set.
Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.
