Milky way cookies. WOWZA! Have you tried these?  My mom makes these milky way cookies all the time and they are delicious!! She brought some over a few weeks ago and I had to snap a picture real fast before they all disappeared. I knew you’d want me to share them with you. ;) These cookies really are AMAZING! They are super soft with loads of milky ways! The chocolate caramel combination is my absolute favorite.


Milky way cookies


  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 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 ways, coarsely chopped


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugars with a mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients along with the chopped milky ways.
  2. 2. Scoop cookies onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.

    Awww. I just made them but I over-baked them and they turned out too crispy. XD Ah well, will try to achieve a chewy cookie another day.

    Hiii these look soo good! Quick question though, the two sticks of butter are small sticks right? So about one cup? The reason I ask is because I only get bigger blocks of butter which are equivalent to one cup.

    I just made these for my family of 5 and more than half the batch is already gone. My husband especially likes them and my oldest is convinced I bought them. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!!
