I’ve been drooling over so many Stuffed Cookie recipes lately, I had to try it. With bloggers stuffing Oreos, Candies, Caramel, and god knows what other delicious treats into their cookie dough left and right… I just couldn’t help myself!
I was doing a quick food shop at the store on Saturday and picked up a roll of cookie dough and a bag of the new Milky Way Caramel Apple flavor. Normally, I’d try to make the cookies from scratch but let’s face it… with the dinner I was making (get excited for the recipe btw… it’s naughty) the last thing I wanted to do was stand there longer and bake cookies.
Once my Crabcake Mac and Cheese (oh yeah… I went there) went into the oven, I took out a baking sheet and my silpat and went to work.
Here’s all I did:
1. Unwrap 8 mini Caramel Apple Milky Way candies.
2. Break cookie dough roll into 16 pieces. Roll a piece with my hands, smush it, then place the milky way in the center. Roll and smush another piece of cookie dough and place it ontop of the candy. Roll into a ball (they were pretty big) and place on the silpat on the cookie sheet.
4. Place in an oven preheated to at least 350. Set the timer for 8-10 minutes and check on them. When they are starting to get brown ontop, they’re done. Dig in… OMG.
They were freakin’ amazing! Besides the fact that we rarely make dessert for after dinner (anything more than Fro Yo that is) and the fact that the cookies were huge… they were SO GOOD. Baking the candy inside the cookie turns it soooo chewy and all kinds of yummy deliciousness. So. Freakin. Good. You could totally taste the Caramel Apple in the candy, well done Milky Way.
As for stuffing my cookies- two thumbs up! This is a great idea. I’m in.
