Baking to the Beat – Recipe: Chewy Chocolate Milky Way Cookies


It is Thursday!  And, that has me baking, listening to music, and smiling.

And, it helped that this is what I got to see first thing this morning.

They love each other so much.  And, they were not posed.  They were actually cuddling like that whenever I ran to get my camera.  It is truly a blessing and a joy to watch.

Then, I got to see this, which also brought a smile to my face.

Brotherly love, ballet, and baking…wow…that is my kind of Thursday!

I am in the process of baking 100 cupcakes, 50 cookie cups, and 50 mini pies.  We are having a Fall Festival at our school tomorrow, and I am honored that Summer Sweets is one of the vendors.

I do not have cute cupcake recipes to share today, but I do have some amazingly delicious cookies for you.

Chewy Chocolate Milky Way Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Milky Way Cookies


1 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for rolling

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup milk chocolate chips

2 Milky Way bars, cut into small cubes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugars together.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the cocoa powder.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, and mix until well blended, about 2-4 minutes.
  7. Add the chocolate chips, and mix until combined.
  8. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out a ball of the cookie dough. Place a milky way cube into the center, and form a ball around it.
  9. Roll the ball in sugar.
  10. Place on baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

      Thank you! And, the great thing about the cookies is that you can really use any chocolate candy…which means that I am totally going through the trick or treat baskets on Monday so that I can make a new creation. 🙂

  10. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.

    Try to keep a record of the pluses and minuses of the different kinds of binoculars you may be interested in. There are some terrific field glasses
    available to you but let’s face it there is no such thing as the perfect pair.
