Send Me To The Milky Way Cookies

Good Wednesday Morning Ya’ll. Hope everyone is enjoying their week! It’s actually my B-day today, whoo hoo for 32! It’s weird because I don’t feel much older than when I was in high school! It’s just a number right!!??

Yes, another Halloween has come and gone and sure enough I had a whole bowl full of mini Milky Ways and 3 Musketeers left that I wanted to get out of the house. Being the cookie lover that I am, I thought, why not just toss all the candy bars into some good dough. Let me tell you, I am not a huge fan of these candy bars by themselves, but Whoa are they good in cookies. The nougat and caramel makes the cookies chewy and ultra soft. I might even be tempted to make these babies all year round, that’s how much I liked them. So, give them a whirl, and if your family is anything like mine, those are the 2 candy bars that are left at the bottom of your Halloween bowls!

Take a peek and enjoy!!


Send Me To The Milky Way Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

¾ Cup sugar

¾ Cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 ¾ Cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

35 mini milky way and 3 musketeer candy bars, coarsely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream the butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined, scraping edges with a spatula. In a separate large bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chopped candy bars.

2. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until cooked to your preference. Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.

Come back soon for another Pomegranate Giveaway!! Have a great week!!

    Hi! Thanks for the milky way cookies recipe. Can’t wait to try it. How much does a batch make approximately? Thanks. Jenn

    Looked like a great idea, I was really liking forward to making them. But they stuck to the parchment and were a total mess. Too bad, but I will have to find a new way to utilize all that candy.
