Salted Caramel is all the rage lately! Here is a chocolate chip cookie that is updated with the sweet Milky Way Simply Caramel fun size candy bars and Sea Salt, of course!
Just one bite into this cookie will begin the revolution of flavor in your mouth. There is Sea Salt on the interior candy itself, as well as sprinkled on top, so you are GUARANTEED to pull that salt into the caramel and enjoy the lacing of the flavors as you chew your favorite (soft) chocolate chip cookie.
This cookie totally works. It's my lab experiment - gone totally yummy. Now, because I can't give out samples, you need to bake these right now, come back, post your review!! <3 And if you want doorstep service...

Step 1: The Recipe
Milky Way Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields 30+ cookies
Milky Way Simply Caramel Fun Size (3 of the Six Pack)
1t Baking Soda
1t Salt, Sea Salt Preferred
1.5c Unsalted Butter, Melted
2c Brown Sugar, Packed
1c Granulated Sugar
1T Vanilla Extract
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 :)
Step 2: The Break-Down!
These are the images of me making the dough!
You will see less chocolate chips in your batch because I prefer less chocolate chips for the final recipe. I had 4 cups in these photos. When you mold the cookie ball around the candy bar, they jab and get awkward, so I feel that the ratio would be better if there were less chocolate chips. (Which I've amended in my recipe.) It's very simple! Just follow the instructions in the recipe step and you will have a great cookie dough!
Step 3: Roll and Bake
Take a handful of dough, press it into your hand to flatten it a little, press your candy in it and build it up. Once you have it covered, you can roll it in your hand like play doh to make sure that it's completely covered. Then sprinkle sea salt, bake, and eat! Enjoy!!
