Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ooey gooey stuffed oatmeal peanut butter cookies with chocolate and caramel apple Milky Ways make an easy and fun cookie for fall or Christmas.
Longest name ever award goes to: these cookies. Happy Monday! How was everyone’s Halloween? Are you still recovering? I had a great weekend dressed in my Alice in Wonderland costume (bucket list item “dress as a Disney character or princess for Halloween” crossed off). I also thoroughly enjoyed that extra hour of sleep! I know people look at me like I have two heads when I bring up “leftover” Halloween candy. Apparently, most people don’t let the candy last so long as to become leftover. I, on the other hand, didn’t have a whole lot of Trick-Or-Treaters this year as it was very cold and rainy, so I’m all about the leftover Halloween candy recipe ideas.
Here’s where these Caramel Apple Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies come in to play. You can use ANY fun size/mini candy bars for these. I thought they were really unique with the caramel apple Milky Ways and were a flavor cookie unlike I’ve ever had before. Different is good, right? You can use regular Milky Ways, Snickers, whatever you are in the mood for at the moment (and whatever you have an abundance of left in your house).
These cookies baked up thick and soft: my favorite combination in a cookie. Peanut butter. oatmeal, and chocolate are good enough, but then add a candy bar smack dab in the center and these have my name written all over them. I hope you try them, too!
- ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
- ¼ cup softened butter
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup + 1 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
- 18 snack size Caramel Apple Milky Way Bars, unwrapped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butters and sugars together. Stir in egg and vanilla and whip until light in color and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Slowly stir in baking soda, salt, flour and oats until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
- Using a cookie scoop, create 8 cookie dough balls on your prepared baking sheet. Press dough down flat. Top with a milky way bar and place another scoop of cookie dough over top. Press the dough around the Milky Way bar to enclose/cover completely.
- Bake 9-11 minutes or until cookie starts to turn light golden brown on the bottom.
- Cool 3-5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
