Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you ever found yourself with leftover sweetened condensed milk after making a recipe?  It’s one of those ingredients where sometimes you only end up using some of the can, then you’re left wondering what to do with the rest.  And it’s such a delicious ingredient that you can’t waste it!  But don’t worry, I’m sharing a recipe that’s perfect for that leftover sweetened condensed milk…Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are not your typical chocolate chip cookie.  In fact, they’re actually more like a shortbread cookie with chocolate chip cookies.  They’re soft, sweet, rich and buttery.  And you need to make them.

Another thing that’s good to note about this recipe is that they’re egg free. So if you have an egg allergy in your family, or you just recently ran out of eggs, you can make these cookies!

    I am making the chocolate chip cookies and batter is not rollable…. so just placed on cookie sheet w parchment and hoping for best….10 min not close to being done….

      Hi Tricia! The batter should definitely be rollable…it’s a pretty thick dough with not much liquid. I’m not sure what could have happened?

      Mine were quite loose too. Not at all rollable. Followed recipe exactly. Unfortunately I didn’t see this comment until my first tester batch was cooking, but another heaping dollop of flour made the rest of the batter rollable. Could be the original writer scooped the flour instead of spooning into the cup, or maybe a humidity issue. First batch still turned out okay, just extra buttery. Needs a smidge more salt for my taste.

      Flour sometimes absorbs liquids differently
      depending on the brand or even how old the flour is maybe just a bit more flour. I have not made the cookies yet plan too~ maybe someone can provide a photograph of what the batter should look like~

    Hi! These sound amazing. Is the butter unsalted?

    • Reply Jo-Anna Rooney February 7, 2019 at 9:59 PM

      Hi Rachel! I use salted butter for my cookies, but if you only have unsalted butter feel free to use it but maybe add an extra pinch of salt! Enjoy!

    These cookies were incredible! I used miniature chocolate chips for these cute little cookies. I made a batch for work and when I came home an employee phoned my house to tell me how good they were.

    Hi! Do you think I can make the batter/dough a day early and leave it in the fridge (covered) until I can bake them?

    Awesome! Thank you 😊
