Caramilk Cookies

Updated on January 23, 2015

Caramilk Cookies

I came up with this delicious Caramilk cookie recipe somewhat due to necessity. You see after Halloween, when all the candy goes on sale, I went out and bought a 110 piece bag of Caramilk bars. This was on top of all the chocolate bars that I already had on hand that were left over from the trick or treaters. Well next you know it was December and I still had some Caramilk bars left over.

So when I was going to bake my Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, I thought I would take the chance and try something different at the same time. So I set aside some of the cookie dough,before adding the chocolate chips.

Then I used the cookie dough to cover each of the Caramilk bar squares individually. I then baked them using the same temperature and amount of time as the other cookies that I was already baking.

What I ended up with was a fantastic new cookie recipe. These things were absolutely heavenly, a cookie that is filled with chocolate and caramel.

So now I will never be afraid to buy too many Caramilk bars for Halloween. With the way my family loved these, I don't think it will be possible to ever have too many ever again.


  • 2 Cups of Shortening
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 4 Cups of Sifted Flour (Monarch Cake & Pastry Flour)
  • 40 Squares From a Caramilk Bar


  1. Cream the shortening, sugar and egg.
  2. Then add the salt, baking soda, and flour to it.
  3. Mix them together, this will give you the cookie dough base.
  4. Take a Caramilk square and cover it completely with some cookie dough.
  5. Roll it into a ball and place it onto a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake them for 10 minutes at 360 Degrees.

This would be a beautiful way to give someone home bake cookies for Christmas. It could also be a great serving dish for a pot luck or holiday party.

      You are so very creative. Those cookies do look delicious and I have a friend who is addicted to Caramilk bars which means that I am going to have a winner of a recipe to pass along to her. I love your photo. Yum.
