Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1½ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1½ cup dark brown sugar, packed ½ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1½ cups chocolate chunks ½ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto – maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
13 Ways Mom Cheats You Out of Your Halloween Sugar Rush
Oh, look! Mom made a cute Halloween dessert – wait a MINUTE! That's not candy!!! >:( Here are some healthy Halloween treats that you might want to consider as a alternative to your annual sugar rush. Or, you know, you might just want to avoid them as a plague. And please, I'm begging you, don't show this card to my mom. It'll give her ideas. I don't care what you say, Mom – those ghost bananas are NOT Halloween "treats." Even if you did draw little faces on all of them. Oh, this could be good... wait, did you buy the LOW-FAT string cheese?? >:( Candy corn!!! ..... made of vegetables -______- Looks like we could be onto something here! That is, until you bite into one and realize they're "carrot rice balls." Where did you even find this recipe, mom?? Okay, this is just lazy, mom. Ants on a log isn't even a Halloween themed food. You're not fooling anyone by upgrading to "spiders on a log" or whatever this is. NO. N-O SPELLS NO. Get those salad-o'-lanterns OUT OF HERE. What even is that?!? Are those POPPY SEEDS?? Halloween was not invented so we could gorge ourselves on SEEDS, Mom!! Apples, jelly, and almonds... still not as good as candy. Sigh. OKAY THOSE ARE TERRIFYING. What even are those. Besides apples with scary teeth and pretzels sticking out of them. Mom, you're definitely getting closer, but you're also just... disgusting. Ew. I'm not sure I'm going to even have an appetite for candy after this. MOM YOU ARE LITERALLY KILLING ME. Halloween should NOT involve kale!!! Oooo, these are looking good... wait – is that? MORE BANANAS? What's that, Mom? I can have any candy I want as long as I stop complaining? And I'm too old to be trick or treating? And you want me to move out and get a job? Hmm... ... ... ...AT LEAST I HAVE CANDY!!!!!!! :D
