milky way chocolate chip cookies

~a couple of weeks ago at playgroup, the host mom made the most delicious dessert. at first I didn't get too excited about it. I was early in my new running & healthy eating routine and didn't want to be tempted. I had one teeny piece and called it a day.

~then she sent the recipe to everyone because a few moms had asked for it. I did not ask for it.

~so then I bought the ingredients -only 2 things- and made them for O...and I had a few, but really (amazingly) kept it under control considering I could have eaten the entire pan (in one sitting).

~then last week I made them again and brought them to work to share. I had to cut them up prior to bringing them in because O couldn't stand the entire pan staring him down on Sunday night, he wanted to bust into them. I got rave reviews at work and keep thinking about making them again. but I DO NOT need the temptation or the calories.

~instead I thought i'd share the recipe with you though...

2 packages of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - get Pillsbury, Nestle's got recalled.

1 "To Go" package of Milky Way candy bars -there are 6 in the package.

Take the 1st package of cookie dough, break up the squares and flatten into a 9x13 pyrex dish or similar pan so that bottom of pan is covered.

Next, take the 6 candy bars and break (or cut) them into small pieces and distribute evenly throughout the pan, trying very hard not to eat too many of the small pieces.

Last, take the remaining package of cookie dough, break into squares and drop in pan filling in where there are no Milky Way pieces.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.


~and now I'm thinking I may try this recipe with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Then we'll really be in trouble.

~and I'm sorry I do not have a picture to share with you, but trust me, they are sooooo good. I will take pictures next time I make them.

It's not fair that you're sharing this with everyone (especially me). If I make this, I will not be able to have as much self control has you!
