Milk Chocolate Gobs – Recipe! Boo! Perfect for a Happy Halloween!

Print Friendly

Gobs are basically a cookie that contains candy or chocolate pieces.  However, some Gob recipes are more like Whoopie Pies, where the cookie portion tastes like cake and less like a chewy cookie.  I prefer chewy chocolaty cookies over cake cookies because if I wanted cake, I’d make cake.

This recipe is easy to make and contains both mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups and milk chocolate Toblerone.  You can find Toblerone in every grocery store nowadays, but remember when it was a special Swiss chocolate that your parents bought for you during the holidays?

These cookies are fun to make for special occasions, especially Halloween, because you can decorate them with orange sugar sprinkles.  Another idea would be to dip them in melted white chocolate, for a fun black & white cookie.  Anyways, a perfect treat like, Milk Chocolate Gobs will brighten any ole’ day!


1 stick butter, softened

1/3 cup butter-shortening

1 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup dark brown sugar
