Milky Way Cookies

What a great time for my toddlers to pull down my camera and throw it onto the floor.

OK maybe it wasn't that dramatic but nevertheless... My camera is kaput :(

I really hope if I shut it off and turn it on 50 times it will magically work again.... It hasn't seemed to work yet.

Anyways, I have been witness to this Rolo cookie craze. I've actually made the Rolo ones. They were delicious. But Rolo's aren't my favorite candy... Milky Ways are. Especially the midnight ones... YUM! I couldn't find the mini Milky Way dark for this but the milk chocolates were MIGHTY FINE.

Plus it's just an excuse for me to make another batch! (Can you not see how delicious that ooey gooey caramel and nougat look!?)

Or you can go to town and use Reese's minis, or white chocolate kisses.... The world is in your hands people!! When do we ever get that opportunity!?

For the Dough:
(makes about 16 cookies)

1 box devils food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
16 milky way mini's

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the cake mix with the oil and eggs. Really put your arms to work to moisten the dough.
  3. Grab about a golf ball sized chunk of dough (we like big cookies) and form a well. Place your milky way inside and seal over it. You will now have a ball.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and bake for 10 minutes or until slightly flattened and baked thoroughly.
  5. Let cool, dust with powdered sugar.

These cookies are best warm or at room temperature but heck... Anytime is a great time.

Enjoy with a tall glass of milk or make ice cream sandwiches outta them.... YUM!


  1. These look so yummy! My kiddo dropped my camera too {not a fancy one...but my only one none the less}. It still works but now there are lines across the screen. Kids! Guess I should leave my camera out of reach but they just grow so fast you forget how high out of reach is! Lol. Thanks for sharing at my Pinteresting Party this week.
