Milky Way Cookie Bars

Milky Way Cookie Bars are everything that’s amazing about layered treats. To sum this cookie bar up, there’s a chocolate cookie base holding a mixture of chopped up Milky Ways, more cookie crumbles, and sweetened condensed milk. Pretty easy.

Chopping up the Milky Way bars was probably the most time consuming part of making these. But I’m weird. I’m a perfectionist and totally dig the rare chances I get to chop things up.

Anyway, back to the bars. All the layers combine to make a chewy and gooey bar. The cookie portion sort of reminds of the texture of a brownie, soft and chewy. The Milky Way bars do their own thing. They bring a real nice caramel texture and taste right in between the layers of cookies. The sweetened condensed milk brings everything together and keeps the bars gooey.

Overall, I love making these layer bars because they have so much variety. Really what this blog has been teaching me is you can mix a million things together and make something amazing. Even in the Milky Way Cookie Bars, not to many ingredients are added in but it’s not necessarily something you see all the time.
