Have you seen these is stores? They are a seasonal candy so they will be with the Halloween/Fall candy seasonal area of the store. I have bought them at Wal-Mart and Target.

They taste exactly like a caramel apple and when you pair that with these cookies, it is seriously out-of-this-world delicious. Please make these. Just like what I said about these ‘Triple Peanut Butter Monster Cookies’, they are worth every. single. calorie!

The easiest way to make these is with a large cookie scoop. One that holds 3 tablespoons of cookie dough. Fill the cookie scoop half way with dough, press a candy in the middle, finish scooping up dough and then release it and form a ball shape while making sure the candy is completely inside the dough ball. Once you’re done, it will look like a bunch of golf balls on the cookie sheet.

Watch these cookies carefully because you don’t want to overcook them. Mine were perfect at 12 minutes. They set up beautifully and finish baking as they cool. These cookies are best after they have cooled for about 20-30 minutes. But, of course, they are delicious anytime. Warm, soft, and gooey out of the oven or even the day after. If there are some left. I had to promptly bag up the remainder of these and set them aside so my husband could take them to work. Otherwise, I would have eaten wayyyyyy too many!

A single recipe makes 12 cookies but I always double the recipe. You can never have too many caramael apple milky way stuffed cookies, can you?

Caramel Apple Milky Way Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you use a smaller size cookie scoop the cooking time will be less. Just watch carefully depending on what size scoop you use. The 12 minute cooking time is for a large (3 tablespoon size) cookie scoop.

You want to make sure the dough is completely surrounded around the candy bar in the middle. Otherwise, the caramel will ooze out while baking.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I prefer the mini size chocolate chips)
  • fun size caramel apple milky way candy bars, unwrapped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat liner and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butters and sugars together. Add in egg and vanilla extract and whip until light in color and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add in baking soda, salt, flour and oats and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop only to halfway, press an unwrapped candy down in the middle, finish scooping up cookie dough, release and press the dough around the milky way bar to cover completely (see illustrations above). Put on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 11-14 minutes or until cookie starts to turn light golden brown on the bottom and on the edges. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack.

The name brand of these cookie sheet liners are called silpat and they are terribly expensive. I always buy the cheaper “look alike” brands (like the ones above) and they work just as good as the expensive name brand liners.

The cookie scoop, in my opinion, is a must have. I used the large size for these cookies but I also own the medium and small size. I love them!

      Thanks Carlee 🙂 And yes, I can’t be alone with these either! I quickly had to bag them up, and hide them so my husband could take them to work.
