Milky Way Cookies

With Halloween just around the corner, my next few posts are going to be dedicated to cookies that include candy. Some of my favorites are M&M cookies, Peanut Butter Cup cookies, and Peanut Butter Delights.
Today I'm making Milky Way cookies. These are very easy to whip up. Be sure they don't stay in the oven too long. They will brown quickly, and the caramel in the Milky Way will become too hard and ooze out of the cookie.

Do you have a favorite cookie recipe that includes candy?

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup melted margarine 
6 fun size Milky Ways, chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Whisk together the flour and baking powder. Mix condensed milk and butter. Add in flour mixture. Stir in Milky Way pieces. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. Drop rounded tablespoons two inches apart on the lined baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes. 
Yields 1 dozen


  1. These look amazing! I've surprisingly never added candy to cookies before. Such a great idea!
