These chewy, decadent Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookies are filled with chunks of one of my family’s favorite candy bars!

Perfect to make with leftover Halloween Candy, but I recommend making these post Halloween Treats more than once a year!

Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m back again with the monthly installment of Two Sweetie Pies. I bake up one of the decadent desserts from Danielle’s sweet as sugar blog, Hugs and Cookies XOXO ,and she tries out one of mine. After veering off the chocolate path last month, I’m back on track. I took her chocolate chip laden cookies with Snickers chunks and made a Milky Way version for my nut avoiding family. Oldest son, Tom, requested a few treats to take to a weekend cookout, so I sent him with these Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Cherry Clafoutis (needed to expose those twenty-somethings to a rustic French dessert). I set a few aside for the family in residence to sample. Of course, they sampled, raved, then griped that I didn’t save more!
