    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

    Ingredients:

    • 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

    Directions:

    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. 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.

        Yes, it’s one cup of butter! Hope you enjoy these…my family loves them!!

      Hi there!
      Did you use non-salted or salted butter?

      Thanks- they look delicious! :)

      Can the dough be frozen and baked later? I cannot wait to make these!

        Hi Staci! This dough should freeze well! Hope you enjoy these milky way cookies, they are amazing. :)

      I made these and they taste delicious but they are coming out for the oven very thin! Yours look thick. I tried chilling the dough on the cookie sheet before baking. That did not help very much. What else can I do? Thanks!

      Have you ever frozen these after baking?

        I haven’t but I know a frozen milky way is delicious! :)

      I was wondering how many cookies  does the milky way recipe make with one batch?

      • I Heart Naptime posted on December 3, 2015 at 7:20 am (#

        Depending on how big you make the cookies – for me, this makes about three dozen :)
