  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C fan. Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking parchment. With an electric beater, beat the butter until smooth, then add the sugar and vanilla extract and cream until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Sift over the malted drink powder, flour and baking powder. Stir well with a wooden spoon, once combined, gather together and place on a lightly floured work-surface. Knead in the chocolate chunks. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill for 30 mins.
  3. Roll the dough into large walnut-sized balls (approximately 35g each) and place well-spaced apart (they will spread) on the baking trays. Flatten slightly with floured fingertips and bake for 10-12 mins until lightly golden. Cool on the baking trays for 5 mins, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
