Milky Way Cookies

Today is a very special day here in San Francisco, the Giants won the pennant and tonight is the first game of the World Series at AT&T park which is why I’m in SF today-I’m going to the game!  The team that moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958 is going to the World Series for the second time in three years…pinch me I think I’m dreaming.  I remember watching the parade after their victory in 2010, just like it was yesterday.  The signs that say ‘World Series Champions’ that we held up as the parade went by are still in our office, I’m getting choked up just thinking about how proud we all felt and the spirit of camaraderie that was in the crowd that day.  After all those years watching baseball games at the old Candlestick stadium in the freezing wind and rain- we’re  in our new stadium and going to the World Series again!  On to the Milky Way Cookies which I made for my son Taylor and his friends in the press box at last week’s SF 49ers game.  I guess you can tell that we are a big sports family here in the SF bay area!  But, the recipe for these special cookies made with Milky Way candy comes from my blogging friend Lizzy @That Skinny Chick Can Bake who is a devoted Green Bay Packer’s fan and cookie baker extraordinaire ;-)  I just have one note on these simple but rewarding cookies- don’t forget to freeze the chopped fun sized Milky Way candies before starting your cookies.

  1. Milky Way is my favorite candy bar. I loved these when Liz did her version, and I love them again now! They look great, I am sure the guys in the press box put a dent in these very quickly!

  2. Enjoy the game! I stopped watching after my Yankees fell on their face, but I guess now I can live vicariously through you. :-)
    Those cookies look STELLAR!

  3. OMG, these cookies have me drooling on my keyboard. We don’t care about the World Series around here this year, my husband’s in a pout because his beloved Braves choked again when it mattered, lol. Awesome that you will actually be going to the game, Something to remember always, hope they win for you <3

  4. These cookies look so good, Patty! Wish I had a few right now! Have fun at the game tonight! :)

  5. Oh, I love that gooey caramel oozing out of the cookies! These look dangerously decadent!! :D

  6. I have to get my candy still, but I’m putting milky ways on the list. Have fun tonight, I’ll be cheering them on from home.

  7. Oh, Patty, these are making me weak in my knees! I think I’ll be dreaming of these Milky Way (yum!) cookies tonight!

  8. Oh, yours look SO, SO good, Patty! I’m sure they were well loved up in the press box (I think Bill cringes every time I mention that one of my recipes in making its way to the enemy’s stadium…LOL…but I LOVE it!). Thanks for your kind words and for sharing your amazing photos!

  9. I bet these cookies were a crowd favorite! So happy that as of now the Giants are leading. GO GIANTS! Need to pin these winners to make soon!

  10. Patty, these look sensational!!! YAYYYYYY Giants!!!

  11. These look sinful. I love putting Milky Way in cookies. I put them in my Chocolate Chubbies and they make them go from wonderful to out of this world delicious. I don’t know why i never put them in plain chocolate chip cookies. I may have to make a batch this weekend. Thanks for sharing these.

    Oh an by the way – I’m from St Louis so Boo Hoo to us. I thought for sure we’d win until we lost that last game and headed out to SF. Home turf always takes advantage. Good Luck to your team.

  12. These look like a great cookie to take to the world series, glad you are having fun with your team and I hope they win.

  13. These cookies look drooling!

  14. How awesome that you got to be in last night’s game!

    Okay, these cookies look to die for; I bet they didn’t last long at all. Love the caramel oozing out of the cookies. I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been enjoying more than my fair share of the fun size chocolates at the office but gosh, I’d much rather eat them this way. :)

  15. That looks so gooey good. I love milky way chocolate and having them in cookies will be a great idea. I live in SFO and we are huge Giant’s fan. My husband was out with his friends to watch the game.

    Delicious cookies!

  16. Ohh Patty this look superdelicius, I want also prepare them for the next football game watch…
    Ciao francesca

  17. Wow Patty, these cookies look so tempting…I just finish my lunch ans wish I could have one of this treat…the pictures are just awesome!
    Thanks for the recipe and hope you are having a great week :)

  18. Milky Way was my father’s favorite. What a great idea to put it in a cookie!

  19. I’ll have to buy some of those little milky ways while they’re plentiful- these sound wonderful! :)

  20. I see molten caramel oozing out of these cookies; therefore, they are destined to be made in my kitchen.

  21. I love Milky Way bars, and to think of including them into cookies…heavenly, and totally super yummy! Love the recipe, and the superb photos!

  22. This will be an excellent way to use up some of the leftover fun-size Milky Way bars that I am sure we will have leftover from Halloween. :) They look wonderful.

  23. I made these cookies after I saw the recipe on Lizzy’s blog too. They were yummy! And how exciting that you’re two games up now on the Tigers. Go Giants!

  24. Oh my, these look crazy good! I do love Lizzy’s cookie recipes :)
    And congrats on your teams success!

  25. Wow Patty! I think I can smell these cookies through the screen! They look amazing. Caramel added to a chocolate chip cookie is no less than genius in my mind! Your pictures are beautiful! While I was hoping my Washington Nationals would have made it further….I am now rooting for your Giants! : )

  26. So happy the Giants are 3-0 in the World Series! We’re watching Game #4 now and, if they win it all – I may have to make your cookies to celebrate :)

  27. I haven’t had Milky Way for ages and almost forgot how it’s like. I’m not too much of candies person (I love dark chocolate and almond!!) but I rather want to eat cookies that have the candies in it. I sound so strange…lol. And GO GIANTS!
