Milky Way Cookies

What do you do with your leftover Halloween Candy?
A little while ago I made Gluten-Free Homemade Milky Way Bars. They were a huge hit in this house. So much so that I had to make them again so that I could make these cookies. Well I think the cookies are even more popular than the candy bars. Now According to Mars Chocolate, Store bought milky way bars are also gluten-free. So you can use store bought ones if you like. So I figured this would be a good post to put up on Halloween. You can use this recipe for leftover all kinds of Halloween candy bars. Get ready for a swarm of people to your kitchen when these babies come out of the oven! 

Gluten-Free Milky Way Cookies
2 cups better batter gluten free flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of room temperature unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
4 Milky Way Bars

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Combine flour, baking soda and salt and whisk together. 
Add Butter, Brown Sugar, Sugar, Vanilla, and eggs to flour mixer and Mix until fully incorporated. 
Chop up your milky way bars.
Gently fold in the milky way chunks into your batter. 
Scoop onto baking sheets or stones prepared with parchment paper. 
Bake for 15 minutes.

  2. Oh my gosh!!! I LOVE Milky Ways and these cookie look out of this world!!

  3. Oh yes... I'm not mad at these cookies. I would devour them. :)

  4. These sound great but, unless the ingredients in Milky Way bars have changed very, recently they are not Gluten Free. They contain Barley Malt.

  5. According to their site they are gluten-free but I don't risk anything. That is why I made mine from scratch as stated in the recipe.

  6. How many cookies does this recipe make? Thanks!

  7. This recipe makes 2 dozen.
