It’s Halloween, which usually means tons of candy! These gooey Milky Way bars are a great way to use some of that extra candy!

Happy Halloween! Any fun plans for the evening? I will be watching scary movies and passing out candy, which I am so looking forward to. I’ve recorded about 5 movies, so we’ll see how many we make it through tonight LOL. I first made these gooey Milky Way bars for a solar eclipse party my office was having. I figured something with this candy was a good move for an eclipse party, right?! And they were a hit! I thought what a perfect little treat to make with all of those left over Milky Way bars you are sure to get for Halloween. Change things up a bit with your Halloween candy this year!

Homemade milky way treat

The recipe was easy to make and only calls for 4 ingredients, which I love. And did I mention that they are delicious?

Gooey Milky Way Bars


  • 1 17.5 oz pouch of sugar cookie mix You will also need the ingredients that the mix calls for
  • 8 - 10 fun size Milky Way Bars - chopped You can also use 2 large Milky Way Bars
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 can condensed milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

  2. Mix together the sugar cookie mix. Then once combined, press the mix into the bottom of the pan. 

  3. Sprinkle the Milky Way bars and chocolate chips on top of the dough. Then pour the condensed milk evenly over the top of the mixture. 

  4. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, or until top is golden brown. 

  5. Let cool and then cut bars into squares. Serve and enjoy!

One thing to note, the condensed milk can still seem a little runny, but go ahead and take it out of the oven after 30 minutes. Once it is cooled, the condensed milk will harden some. If it does still have an extreme amount of liquid after 30 minutes, you can leave it in a little longer. Just be sure to watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn.

These are the perfect treat with a glass of milk. I will definitely be making them again…perhaps even tonight with leftover Milky Ways we don’t pass out to trick or treaters 🙂

You could also try to substitute the Milky Way bars with Snickers or Reese’s. Both sound pretty great too! Let us know if you try this recipe and how it works out for you.
