Milky Way Cookies

I found this recipe as a draft in my blog posts...a hidden gem! So the text is outdated, but the recipe is definitely not! Enjoy this little time capsule!

They say there are a few major life events that can be considered some of the largest stressors in one's life. Changing a relational status (marriage, divorce, break up), starting a new job and moving. Tim and I are currently finishing up our second move in one year. Our lives are messy, and our closets are unorganized. So, of course, this calls for cookies.

I originally found this recipe on Cookies & Cups' website, although they were supposed to be deep dish cookies. Unfortunately for me, I couldn't find a muffin top pan in Wal-Mart, so I had to go with my second choice: cupcake pans. The shape was a little off, so I'd advice not using them unless you're really set on having deep dish cookies. And even then, I say order the muffin top pan online and wait it out. But that's just me.

Aside from the shape issue, these were incredible. There's nothing like eating gooey, caramel and chocolaty chunky cookies on the floor in your brand new house. This is only an assumption. But something in me wanted to bake something special for our first time in our home. Cookies just seemed to fit the need.

I hope you all enjoy these!


  • 1 cup butter, 2 sticks, room temp
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 (11.24 oz) bag of fun sized Milky Way bars, chopped


Preheat oven to 350.

Prepare your muffin pan by first spraying with cooking spray, next lining each tin with a parchment round. (Cut the parchment to fit in the bottom of the pan) and then spraying the parchment again lightly. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugars together in mixer. Turn speed to low and add eggs and vanilla. Turn up to medium for approximately 20 seconds until batter in combined.

Turn mixer to low and add in flour, baking soda and sea salt. When just mixed together fold in your chopped Milky Way.

Press 1/4 cup batter into each muffin top and bake for 13-15 minutes until the edges are golden and the center is JUST set.

Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Loosen edges with a knife and flip the cookies onto a wire cooling rack.

Love and baking at home,
