Cooking Time15 min


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened slightly
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 6 chocolate bars, broken into rectangular pieces along the marks on the bar.


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Have ready one ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Sift flour and salt together into a bowl and set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, beat butter with sugar until it is light and fluffy, then add egg and vanilla and mix until well combined. Stir in flour and salt to form a stiff dough. 
  • Insert dough into the tube of a cookie press fitted with a dye with one-inch-wide, saw tooth opening. Pipe 3 strips of dough down the length of the baking sheet about 2” apart.
  • Place a row of the chocolate pieces along the length, then pipe a second layer of dough on top of the candy. Repeat on second cookie sheet until all of the dough is used.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until dough is set and edges just begin to brown. Immediately when cookies come out of the oven, gently cut into individual cookies and then remove very carefully to a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar before serving.

I think my father used to make these among the many cookie varieties he'd bake over the holidays. I remember him making a version with mint chocolate which I really liked. When I make them, I'm going to make half with milk chocolate and half with dark chocolate pieces. We get a really nice dark mint chocolate from Aldi's and I'm looking forward to using that in these too.

I am so excited to find these cookies!!! These were my absolute favorite from being a kid. My friend's mom made these cookies every Christmas for me and I haven't been able to find the recipe since then. Thank you so much for sharing this!!!

This recipe looks so easy! Can't wait to try it.

These cookies are so good, I'm going to make them for a get together soon. I think it would be neat to experiment with different types of dough and candy bars to make some crazy cookies.

These were great right out of the oven.

SO delicious! They remind me of Milano cookies, fresh out of the oven!

These are soooo good. The cookies are moist and super tasty!

Soft and sweet and with a chocolate candy bar inside... what's not to love?!

Very buttery and sweet, not to mention chocolatey. These are really tasty.

I have made these for 50 years and they are still my grandchildren's favorite cookie! My advise is to cut through each cookie before baking. This will make it easier after they are baked to cut. I also ever out the sides of each strip to prevent that ragged look. Good Luck!!

I wish there was a picture so I had a better idea of what they are to look like.


I want to put this in my recipe how do I do that?

What are chocolate shots? #10

I think chocolate shots are what I call chocolate "jimmies" or chocolate sprinkles. That was my guess

No pictures?


Oh my! You don't have a cookie press. They are so much fun, but if you don't have one possible roll the dough out to about 14 inch and cut in strips the width if the candy pieces, to put on the cookie sheet. And I think the recipe says INDIVIDUAL size candy bars. That's the little snack bars. So probably break those in half. I am gonna try them for my grand baby, but bet who's gonna eats them too. LOL Yep you guessed it Grandpa

I'd say use the "standard" size chocolate bar. It's about 6 or 8 inches long, probably 1.5 ounces or so.

Unfortunately 10 chocolate bars isn't enough information for me. How about a weight in ounces? Also if you do not have a cookie press with a saw edge, is there another way to handle the dough? Anything with chocolate is right up my alley, so I am hoping someone gives me a clue before I start experimenting.
