Delicious but definitely a mess when eating them: Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookies! Packed with chocolate, caramel, and milk cream. Sugar rush included ;P
1/2 cup (120g) butter, at room temperature
3.5 oz. (100g) cream cheese
1/2 cup (100g) sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3.5 oz. (100g) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped coarsely
3.5 oz. (100g) Milky Way chocolate bars*, chopped
8 mini Milky Way chocolate bars*, cut in half (optional)
1. Add the butter and cream cheese to a large bowl and mix until well combined. Add the sugar and mix everything for a minute or two until well combined. Next, add the egg and vanilla extract and mix in. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the bowl and mix until just combined.
2. Chop the chocolate and chocolate candy bars coarsely. Add to the batter and fold in. Use a cookie scoop* to create dough portions for the cookies, press half a mini chocolate bar into each dough portion (it should disappear completely in the dough), and place on a board or cookie sheet lined with paper. Adding the additional Milky Way pieces to the dough is optional. Cover the dough portions and place in the fridge for about 2 hours.
3. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Place 6-8 dough portions on the baking sheet (depending on the sheet size) – you want enough space in between the cookies. Bake for about 12-13 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool down for a while on the baking sheet. If the cookies are spread out too much you can bring them back in shape right after taking them out of the oven. Let cool down completely on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough portions. Store at room temperature in a cookie box.
Let’s get baking!
