You guys know how I get my cravings. Usually they spark a recipe invention and interesting concoctions. They are sometimes fabulous and other times complete fails. The other night I got a wild hair. I came across a recipe for making cookies out of Reeses cups and an egg. So I thought I wonder if I can do the same with Milky Ways. Had I been using my brain it would have been obvious that the Milky Ways wouldn’t work because they are caramel and chocolate rather than peanut butter, but I had tunnel vision and was a bit determined.
So I set out to create Milky Way cookies by placing 24 fun-size Milky Way candy bars into the food processor with one egg. The result? very smooth and creamy chocolate-y and caramel-y mush. There was no way this was making a cookie. So I got innovative and created these granola bars out of the mush and boy were they tasty!
These Milky Way Granola Bars kinda resemble Little Debbie Star Crunches if you’ve ever had those. They are some of my favorite cookies.
Crunchy with a touch of caramel and chocolate, these aren’t your average granola bars. Don’t expect them to fill you up with protein or replace a meal, these aren’t exactly healthy. But we can pretend they are since they are, after all…..granola bars.
