Caramel Apple Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Caramel Apple Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies is a really long name, but I couldn’t think of how to condense it.

I am really into seasonal flavors (ahem, you may have noticed), so I couldn’t pass up these fun size Caramel Apple Milky Ways on a recent trip to the Trick-or-Treat candy section. I didn’t really know what I would do with them, but I knew these little babies needed to be in my life.

I prayed to the Cookie Gods, and was inspired to stuff an entire fun size bar into a peanut butter cookie.  Because, obvi, peanut butter goes with everything these seasonal Milky Ways have going on: caramel + apple + chocolate. Trust me friends, you will not regret these cookies. I would really encourage you to eat them while they are warm to improve the gooey tasting experience.

A couple of quick tips. These cookies are going to look fat when they are baking, and yes, there is a dome to them, but fret not, they will bake evenly. The fatness is only due to the fact that you have an entire miniature Milk Way in there.

Bake these cookies for 8-9 minutes, just until the cookies appear dry and the tops may begin to look SLIGHTLY cracked. They may not look done, but trust me. Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool on a cookie sheet for 3-4 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack. They will be juuuuust right.

I hope you enjoy these cookies! What is your favorite seasonal offering? Is there any candy bar you would like to see stuffed inside of a cookie/cupcake/brownie/cake? Let me know in the comments below!

Caramel Apple Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

½ cup 1 stick) salted butter

½ cup light brown sugar

¼ cup sugar

1 egg

¾ cup creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 + ¼ cups all purpose flour

18 Caramel Apple Milky Way “mini’s”

Directions

Cream butter and sugars with an electric mixer or a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment. Mix in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla.

Slowly add baking soda and flour, taking care not to over-mix.

Chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat over to 350°.

Carefully scoop cookie dough around Milky Way, covering evenly on all sides (my cookies were about the size of a golf ball).

Bake on a cookie sheet for 8-9 minutes, until dough is dry. Do not over bake. Cookies may appear slightly underdone, and that is ok! Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, and then transfer them to a wire rack and allow to cool.
