These Milky Way cookies are out of this world. If you’re a fan of Milky Way bars (and who isn’t?) add this cookie recipe to your must-make list. Plus, I’ll show you how to package this cookie mix in a jar, which makes it a great gift idea too!
Milky Way Cookies
Confession time: every time Halloween rolls around I find myself grabbing a couple of Milky Ways as part of the mom candy tax. 😉 It’s one of my all-time favorite candies!
If you haven’t enjoyed a Milky Way bar in a while, let me refresh your memory. The outer layer of milk chocolate gives way to chocolate malt-flavored nougat and a generous ribbon of caramel. It’s irresistible.
But you can never have too much of a good thing, right? So why not amp it up a bit and make Milky Way cookies? These cookies have chunks of Milky Way bars, so you are guaranteed chocolate-caramel-malty goodness one very single bite. Yum!
