Step 1: The Recipe

Picture of The Recipe
Milky Way Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields 30+ cookies

Milky Way Simply Caramel Fun Size (3 of the Six Pack)
4c Flour
1t Baking Soda
1t Salt, Sea Salt Preferred
1.5c Unsalted Butter, Melted
2c Brown Sugar, Packed
1c Granulated Sugar
1T Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
2 Egg Yolks
3c Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Sift the flour with your salt and baking soda, set aside.  In a mixer - Cream together the melted butter, brown and granulated sugar.  Once incorporated, beat in the eggs, then vanilla.  After the wet ingredients are combined, add in your dry ingredients.  Mix until just combined and then add the chocolate chips, gently stir them in. 

Cut the milky way candies in half (fun size bars), dip them into sea salt to seal the open caramel end.  Take a ball of dough, just big enough to cover the half-mini-bar, add more dough if needed.  Roll into a ball and sprinkle the top with more sea salt.

Bake at 325 degrees for 17 minutes with 12 cookies per sheet/pan.  Let cool before transferring to a cooling rack.  For any further questions, just send me an email - SweetInsanityBakeShop@gmail.com  :)

I'm trying really hard not to look. Not to touch. Not to taste. But I'm losing on all counts. These cookies look absolutely delicious. Good luck in the contest. I'll bet the judges wish they could taste this entry!

How long do these cookies usually keep? I'm really interested in making a batch, and shipping them (travel time approximately one week).

generally, chocolate chip cookies are good until they go stale (which is less than a week if they aren't kept air-tight) but if you were to seal them nicely, I'm sure they would make the shipment. PLUS, once they've arrived, they will be eaten before they need to worry about storing or freezing them LOL. :D
WOW!

My nephew and I made a double batch of these, because we like to share. We had coarse sea salt in the cupboard. 2 Tbsp of that in the coffee grinder was perfect, in our opinion. The recipients of the cookies voted unanimously thumbs up.

Thanks for posting this one. It's a hit.

I used coarse ground sea salt when I made these tonight and got too much salt on the dough. Err on the side of caution when using the salt. You just want an interesting salty counterpoint to the overwhelming sweetness of the other ingredients. Not salty cookies like I made! Luckily I baked half of the batch first and tried them before proceeding. Now that I have the salt dialed in, these will be a new favorite for me!

Thanks for sharing!!
I don't know, but the pictures of your cookies make me dream! My favorites!! :-)
Food porn........Mmmmmmmmmm.....
