Milky-Way Stuffed Cookies

Milky-Way Stuffed Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A gooey cookie wrapped around a milky-way and drizzled with salted caramel!! HEAVEN IN A COOKIEThe best food combination in the entire world is probably chocolate and caramel. I’m fairly new to this whole sea salt thing, but I also am a big fan of the sea salt caramel chocolate combination. I got some cookies for you that are chocolate dough with chocolate chips and a milky-way INSIDE with caramel and sea salt on top. Are you drooling as much as I am right now? This is the kind of cookie that makes you question why you ever would cut sweets out of your life. This is the kind of cookie, that according to a coworker, makes diabetics “turn their pumps up.” I’m not exaggerating – somebody told me that. Cookies make me happy, but this cookie takes that happiness to the next level. Without further ado, I bring you the cookie you must make next time you bake.

  • Cream the butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla together in a large bowl with a mixer
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt and mix until well combined
  • Fold the chocolate chips into the dough and mix until thoroughly combined
  • Refrigerated the dough for at least 30  minutes, but not more than about 40
  • Preheat the oven to 350* (seriously – INVEST IN AN OVEN THERMOMETER) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Using a heaping teaspoon of dough, flatten out the dough before forming it around a milky-Milky-Way Stuffed Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings.

Note: I don’t recommend laying it down like in the picture, I would flatten it between your hands and just hold it while you form it around the milky-way: I just took the picture to show you about flattening the dough. Cover the milky-way completely
  • Bake for 10  minutes and remove, leaving on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack
  • Once the cookies are done, prepare the caramel drizzle: microwave the caramels for about 45 seconds, stir, and add the condensed milk
  • Microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring each time, until the caramel is smooth
  • Drizzle the caramel over a few cookies at a time, sprinkling salt as you go. Work quickly as the caramel hardens fast. Microwave for 10-12 seconds every time the caramel gets hard
  • Allow caramel to set before eating. If you are storing these, create a flat layer and then place parchment paper on top before creating a new layer. These are good microwaved for 6-8 seconds the next day to melt them down just a little bit
