Milky Way Stuffed Cookie Recipe

Milky Way Stuffed Cookie Recipe

– Sponsored Post –

Have you ever had a stuffed cookie? We hadn’t until these amazing, ooey gooey stuffed cookies with Milky Way bars. We’re still cleaning our fingers from all that chocolate and caramel. (Not that we’re complaining). We made our own cookie dough, but if you have a favorite store-bought cookie dough in mind, use it. It will work great.

If you do make your own cookie dough, you probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

Gold Medal - All Purpose UnBleached FlourThis time, we used unbleached all purpose flour from Gold Medal Flour and it worked great. Gold Medal Flour paid us to develop a couple of recipes using their flour, so we thought we’d share with you.

If you can’t find Gold Medal Flour, feel free to use your favorite brand of flour.

You’ve Got to Make Our Milky Way Stuffed Cookie Recipe, It’s So Good

These are really easy to make — all you need is an extra 5 to 10 minutes so you can stuff a fun-size Milk Way inside cookie dough before baking. We make our own cookie dough, but if you’re in a pinch, use a store-bought cookie dough, it will still work.

See how we sneak a whole Milk Way in into the middle? It’s almost wrong! (We said almost).

By the way, if you like another small or fun-size candy bar a little better than Milky Way bars, use it. Snickers would be amazing!

This stuffed cookie recipe is really easy to make -- all you need is an extra 5 to 10 minutes so you can stuff a fun-size Milky Way inside cookie dough before baking. We make our own cookie dough, but if you're in a pinch, use a store-bought cookie dough, it will still work. (If you do use store-bought dough, watch the baking time as it may vary from what we share below). Also, feel free to switch out the Milk Way bars for your favorite small or "fun-size" candy bar.
Created By:
Yield: 12
You Will Need
  • 1 cup (227 grams) butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (161 grams) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups (315 grams) all-purpose flour (we used Gold Medal Unbleached)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 ounces (283 grams) chocolate chips
  • 12 to 14 "fun-size" Milk Way candy bars
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter, both sugars and the vanilla extract on medium speed with a hand mixer until creamy, light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as necessary. This should take about 2 minutes. Then, add one egg and beat until combined. Repeat with second egg.
  3. In a medium bowl, use a whisk to combine the flour, baking soda and the salt. Whisk about 10 times to make sure everything is well combined.
  4. Now, add the flour mixture, in thirds, to the butter mixture, beating until incorporated and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Use the palms of your hands to roll about 12 cookie dough balls, using 2 tablespoons of dough for each. Then, flatten one cookie dough ball, place a Milky Way into the middle. Flatten a second cookie dough ball and cover the Milk Way. Squeeze/crimp together the edges so that the Milky Way is completely covered. Repeat with remaining dough. This should make between 12 and 14 stuffed cookies.
  6. Bake cookies 10 to 15 minutes or until the cookies are light golden brown. (It may be helpful to rotate baking sheets half way through baking). Cool cookies on baking sheet for 10 minutes then move to a cooling rack to cool completely. Or, do what we do and eat the cookie now, while the Milky Way is still molten.

    Can you do these with Snickers? Will they melt the same way?

    • Joanne March 3, 2016, 8:48 pm

      Yep, that would be great.

    These look very good, but was wondering what i would have to do for a batch of 36 cookies??

  • Sharon March 22, 2015, 7:40 am

    I made these and they turned out wonderful. Followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for the post!

    I’m 15 with barely any baking experience and I found a recipe on the internet that I messed up. I then found this recipe and it was very simple and easy to follow and the cookies came out great

    Delicious!! Made some with Milky Way, Snickers, and Reese Peanut Butter Cups. The PB Cups were the only ones not to flatten out – but no complaints at all!! All my boys enjoyed them 🙂 Thanks for another great recipe!

      Oh, yum! What a great selection of candies to stuff into the middle!

  • Phillipa October 17, 2013, 12:08 pm

    I followed the recipe, however mine didn’t flatten out like yours did. I ended up with a still square milky-way in the center of quite a thick cookie.
    Good verdict on taste though! If not quite how they were supposed to be!

    They look incredibly good! Thanks for the recipe.

    I’m drooling now!! Yum!

    Amazing! Anything “stuffed” in a cookie is a plus in my book!

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar December 19, 2012, 4:30 pm

    Oh my goodness, what a fabulous cookie!
