Ever since I was a kid my favorite candy bar was the Milky Way. I hated nuts growing up. So while my siblings were crazy for Snickers, I loved that Milky Way was loaded with caramel and had no nuts.

I wanted the cookies to be loaded with Milky Ways so I made some with Milky Ways pressed into the top of the cookies. However, the cookie looks prettier if you just hide a piece of a Mini inside the cookie.

Baking Tip: When you’re baking with cocoa powder, it’s important to sift it. Cocoa tends to have little clumps of cocoa that won’t mix in easily with the flour. So I always sift my cocoa in a fine mesh strainer before mixing it with the flour. It only takes a few minutes and helps the batter come together quickly and easily.

If you\'re a Milky Way candy bar lover like me, you\'re going to love these Triple Chocolate Milky Way Cookies.

If you can’t find the Milky Way Minis, substitute any size Milky Way bars and cut them into bite size pieces. I like to use kitchen shears to cut the candy bars.

I made these cookies for a family camping trip recently and they were a big hit with my family. I’m sure your family will love these Triple Chocolate Milky Way Cookies too.
