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!!

The cookies look great. A yummy looking versatile dough that would be good with just about anything!
Happy Birthday! You deserve the best – thanks for letting all of us copy off your yummy recipes!
And we have gads of these two candy bars left (I don’t eat them, myself, but give me a DARK Milky Way and I’ll gobble it down), and a friend who shares your birthday, so it’s off to raid the kids’ buckets for these little devils! Thanks!
Yum- I bet the texture of those candy bars is just perfect in the cookies!
Happy belated birthday! This cookies look GOOOOOD!! I look forward to trying the recipe and keeping up with what you have to come!
Those cookies look amazing Jenny! I will have to use up some of my overload of leftover candy. Thanks!
And Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday Jenny and these cookies look so dunkable.
You creative girl you. The cookies look fantastic.
Happy, happy birthday to you!
I have three musketeers I have to use up also…
These sound great! And just in time for my friend’s cookie exchange party. I was wondering approximately how many full size candy bars would you use? I ate all of my Halloween candy already!
Happy Birthday girlie! Glad you don’t feel older (especially with kids!), that’s the goal, I think.
Those cookies look awesome, wish I had some leftover candy… heh.
Happy Birthday! I just made these cookies and they are great! I didn’t have any milky way but I used half with butterfinger and half with snickers. They were so good!
I’m not a Milky Way fan, but those cookies sound deeelish!
Happy Birthday! This is definitely a better way of dealing with Halloween candy that just eating it!
Happy Birthday Jenny!! At 32 your still a pup!! I’m bookmarking these cause I would hate myself if I didn’t make them!!
Happy birthday! You are still a baby! Great cookies and I love the name.
Happy Birthday! Those cookies look yummy. 🙂
I made the Pumpkin Spice Blossom cookies you posted last month and they were amazing, thank you for posting that recipe.
Awww Happy Birthday sweetie! yes, it’s just a number.
I gave away all my Halloween candy…too dangerous to keep around me.
But glad you made really good use of yours. I love the chunk of candy bar in the middle pic. YUM!
Happy Birthday to you!!! These cookies look amazing. I have a bunch of snickers…any ideas? I guess I could just do the same thing just with the snickers. Thanks for the idea.
Look at this, you give us a gift by posting a recipe.
Whatever your plans are, I hope everything goes great!
Happy Birthday Jenny! 32 is great! (that’s what I turned this year 😉
Hope you have a great day and your cookies look great! I love almost any candy bar!
Happy birthday!!! Hope you have a very special day!
Happy Birthday! I totally know what you mean that you don’t feel any older than you were in High School. My 30th is coming up in 2 weeks. Thes cookies look great!
I’m not a big candy or choc bar eater so I know I would like these cookies more than the bars alone too. They look delicious!!!
Happy birthday!! Enjoy your day. Cookies look amazing.
Great idea with the candy in there. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
