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. 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.

  9. Just made these and they are so yummy. I didn’t have milky ways so I used Snickers, so good!

  10. How many cookies does it make ?

  11. 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!!

  13. looking for the recipe that is on the back of the mini m % ms package.

  14. Wanted to make Milky Way cookies purchased full size bars not the minis… you you know how many full size bars are needed?


  15. Very delicious cookie!

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

    Thanks- they look delicious! :)

  17. I have made over 250 of these cookies in the last 2 weeks for different functions.  They are very delicious and turn out perfect every time!!

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

  19. 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!

  20. Have you ever frozen these after baking?

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

  22. Made these Sunday, for following school week. Yeah right, they never made it to Sunday night!!! One word, amazing 😋

  23. Got my Milky Ways today and will make these tomorrow for my daughter. They look delish and Milky Way is her favorite candy. Did you use AP flour or self rising? I have both.

  24. My children will love them!

  25. Can these be made with premixed sugar cookie dough? I have a ton of that. Could you provide a recipe adjustment for that?

    • Hi Josh! You definitely could, but the homemade cookie dough will taste much better for these cookies! :) I would just add the milky ways and follow the directions on the premixed sugar cookie dough package.

  26. I just made a batch of these fantastic cookies. My great grandkids loved them, but so did my “big” kids! Excellent.
