Can you even imagine…..
cookies with chopped up mini Milky Way bites…
stuffed with some ooey gooey caramel right in the middle?!
Yep – that’s what I made last weekend when I needed a treat to take to a party.
I had the cookie dough ready with the chopped up Milky Way bites, when my oldest son texted me a photo of some caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookies with this message:
“Here is your next challenge.”
Well – I do love a challenge…
And I did happen to have a bag of caramels in the pantry…
so why not?! If caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookies are good, wouldn’t they be even more amazing with chopped up Milky Way bites?
And O. M. G.!
My youngest son said they are his new fave! Woohoo! Score!
Milky Way Caramel Stuffed Cookies
4 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
5 cups all purpose flour
2 8-oz bags Milky Way Unwrapped Bites, chopped
1 bag of Kraft Caramels, unwrapped
With electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until completely incorporated. Add vanilla and eggs, and beat until light and fluffy. Add baking soda and salt, and mix another minute. Gradually add flour and beat until well incorporated, but do not overbeat.
Fold in chopped Milky Way Bites. Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. With your hands, form a cookie dough ball about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Push a small indentation in center with your thumb and place an unwrapped caramel. Wrap dough around to enclose. Place on baking stone. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool on baking stone for 2-3 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
Enjoy the chocolatey, caramely, ooey, gooey yumminess!
Cheers & Hugs,
