Today’s recipe is delicious and EASY!! And I mean easy with a capital EASY! Does it get any easier than two ingredients? Well, maybe one ingredient!
I first had these Milky Way bars over 20 years ago. We were having dinner at my husband’s bosses home and his wife served this treat for dessert. I remember going crazy over it. One of my top 3 favorite candy bars is Milky Ways. When she gave me the recipe I couldn’t believe it – only two ingredients. Milky Way candy bars and store bought chocolate chip cookie dough. You know the kind, the one that comes in the roll in the refrigerator section of the store!?
You will need two rolls of dough and 4 full size Milky Way bars or 12 of the fun size candy bars. Now later this month when your trick or treaters come home – be sure and pick out all the Milky Way bars so you can make this. Or then, you could just go to the store and buy a bag of those little candy bars and make it now!
I sliced up the cookie dough and laid it on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. I sliced it about an inch thick.
Pop it in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. While it’s baking chop up your candy bars.
After 15 minutes pull it out of the oven and sprinkle the chopped up candy over the top. Use your finger to gently poke the candy down into the dough. Remember the dough is hot!
And then return to the oven for about 15 more minutes.
Allow the bars to cool and then cut up into nice size pieces!
How easy is that!!??
Of course they taste wonderful when they are warm and ooey and gooey.
But they are also wonderful at room temperature – how can chocolate chip cookie dough and Milky Way bars not be wonderful anytime!?
