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!!

    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!

    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.

    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! 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!

    Hey Jenny, happy birthday!!! My friend made me these cookies and told me about this website she found them on….(yours) and of course they were wonderful! She then said that you look so great and so young, (not that 32 is old or anything!) Obviously you stay very busy and that keeps you looking great!

    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.
