Caramel Chocolate Cookies


I love all things caramel so when I saw this cookie recipe on Rookie Cookie's blog, I had to try it. Holy Smokes!!! These were disgusting! Disgustingly good and addicting, that is. Yummy soft chocolate cookies with little chewy caramel bits. I couldn't stop eating them. I meant to send them to work with my hubby but he got sick and didn't go into work that day so here they were all bundled up nicely in our cookie jar...did I mention that our cookie jar is clear glass??? It was horrible. Everytime I walked by that cookie jar, one of those darn cookies was calling out to me. I gained like 5 lbs eating these and they were worth every bit of that weight. Those little caramel bits...I'm not kidding, you will literally be eating handfuls of those suckers right out of the bag, they are that good.

If you have not checked out Whitney's blog over at Rookie Cookie, you have to take a gander...I'm starting to dislike her very much, she's making me fat with all those great recipes!

Caramel Chocolate Cookies

2 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup caramel bits or chopped up caramel squares
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Set oven to 350°F. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.



In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar. Add eggs and vanilla until fluffy.



Gradually add flour mixture, beating well.


Stir in caramel bits and chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until set. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

i just love chocolate cookies! and especially with the caramel chips. oh boy, they sound decadent. and yes, they are similar to justin's, but justin's has butterscotch chips, i think? either way, scrumptious!!

Jaime, a half-marathon is totally do-able!! I ran one a few years ago, without being properly trained. You can and will do it! By the way, I meant to say in my previous comment, I am so jealous of your awesome stand mixer!!!

Christina, I am a little stressed about the marathon, but I figure if I'm not ready, I'll just walk it. And yes I LOVE LOVE LOVE my kitchen aid. I just got it this year for my anniversary from my in-laws. I blogged about it because I was so excited. You can read about it here:

Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving the kind words. I, in turn, had to check out "the Dish".

Oh my gosh. These cookies do look disgustingly good. Darn. Now, I'm going to have to make them. You can't show me a picture of a caramel chocolate cookie and not expect me to (1) drool and (2) run and make some for myself. Great job! Thanks for coming over to my blog; so glad it led me to y'all's (that's right; I'm from the South originally). I love your blog! Can't wait to keep reading more.
