Your weekend plans only got a whole lot tastier. Let me innovate yous to Caramel-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies! Fudgy, chocolate cookies amongst crisp edges, filled amongst a uncomplicated homemade caramel sauce, as well as topped off amongst a lilliputian flaky ocean salt. These cookies are THE BEST!
The thought for these cookies came subsequently I made my Strawberry Caramel Crumble bars for the 17th fourth dimension (ok, perchance it was alone three times). I had leftover caramel as well as I needed to uncovering a skillful purpose for it! Enter these beauties.
Luscious Caramel Situation
Let me explicate this caramel situation. The recipe for my strawberry bars (linked above) makes twice equally much caramel equally yous take away to brand the bars. That leaves us amongst a few delicious options:
- Make a double batch of the Strawberry Bars as well as purpose the total amount of caramel
- Make a double batch of these Caramel-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies as well as purpose the total amount of caramel
- Make a regular batch of the Strawberry Bars as well as purpose the remaining one-half of the caramel inwards these cookies
- Make the total batch of caramel as well as purpose one-half inwards these cookies as well as purpose the balance equally a java creamer!
- Make a regular batch of the Strawberry Bars or these Cookies, as well as cutting the caramel recipe inwards half. Use the remaining sweetened condensed milk for java creamer!
It’s a choose-your-own-caramel hazard as well as ALL the scenarios halt inwards a win.
Making cookies that are stuffed amongst something is fairly easy. Roll your cookie dough into balls, equally normal, as well as thus flatten them out as well as scoop your filling into the middle! Fold upwards the edges around the caramel as well as you’ve got yourself ane giant, caramel-stuffed cookie that’s laid for the oven.
And if a lilliputian caramel leaks out inwards the oven – that is OK. It’s the artsy look, ok? Ok. And it’ll yet gustation fabulous. I retrieve my favorite affair close these cookies is the combination of salty + sweetness that yous tin ship away instruct past times sprinkling a lilliputian flaked ocean tabular array salt on top. I retrieve my other favorite affair close these cookies is the combination of squash + soft that yous instruct amongst the crisp edges as well as the soft, fudgy, caramely center. So basically my favorite business office of these cookies is everything.
These absolutely must hold out eaten amongst a tall, mutual frigidity drinking glass of milk! These are also best eaten the twenty-four hours they’re made. The cookies volition lose some of their crisp-ness subsequently that. But to hold out fair, our storey is wicked hot as well as the cookies mightiness fit upwards ameliorate inwards a to a greater extent than temperature-controlled situation. I didn’t essay refrigerating them (they were eaten also fast for that!), but that could run if yous don’t desire to consume them all same-day.
Another illustration for immediate-cookie consumption – the caramel is dainty as well as melty but volition stiffen upwards subsequently a while. Thank goodness this is a small-batch recipe, right??
The caramel as well as cookie dough tin ship away both hold out made a twenty-four hours ahead as well as and thus assembled as well as baked the twenty-four hours of, equally well!
Funny story – I originally intended this to hold out a paleo cookie recipe. But as well as thus I had caramel sauce to purpose up, as well as that thought went downwards the drain. The cookies are paleo-ish, the caramel is not. Oops 😉
Happy weekend as well as happy baking!
