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

Ingredients:Caramel Stuffed Milky Way Cookies 2

4 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
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

Directions:

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,

Jodi

    • Oh Lance! LOL! Make dumplings with those apples 🙂 PS If you can’t find the Milky Way Bites, nothing says you can’t “improvise” with chopped up full sized bars – hehehe!

    I had a chance to taste those wonderfully delicious cookies on Sunday. They were outstanding. Also really enjoyed hearing how you selected your gift. I was in the back and did not get to see the particulars. Thank you. Just have to tell you how much I adore your son Nick. What a polite, courteous, thoughtful young man! What a joy to see him again. Of course Sunday brought several other standouts. Liz, Tony, Matt, Candace, Christi, and CJ. I was the lucky one to be in the presence of these young people. Every single one of them displayed their social graces, social adeptness and treated this “old folk” admirably. Just an assurance to know that we have young people such as these in our world. Job well done parents, job well done.

    • Oh Susan – I have tears in my eyes. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, and I know you know the greatest compliment a Momma can hear is one of his “child” even adult child. I am so proud of both of my boys and the amazing men they have turned into. Oh Susan – I am so happy our paths have crossed through Nick and CJ – you are one of my favorite people in the world. I love your heart, your humor, your spirit, your joy. I wish I could have known your sweet hubby. Nick tells me I would have loved him just as much! xoxo
