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!!

Don't Create False Expectations, Especially When It Comes to Baked Potatoes
Folks, something just happened, and it was exceptionally tragic. Outrageous. Unheard of. Unbearable. To prevent this same travesty from happening to you, I thought I'd share my experience and give some handy marketing advice while I'm at it (this being SEM Tuesday and all). Okay, let me back up. I was sitting at my desk, minding my own beeswax and deleting 45 spammy YOUmoz entries (thanks a lot, assholes) when Mel, one of our lovely developers, popped his head up, sniffed audibly, and said, "It smells like Wendy's in here!" As soon as the word "Wendy's" hit my ears, my stomach rumbled a slow, garbled yet audible tone: "baaaaaaaaaaaaked potaaaaaaaatooooooooo." Holy crap, I wanted a baked potato, and I wanted one bad. My coworkers rallied behind the cause. Jeff: "Yeah, baked potato!"Scott: "I've been craving a baked potato for like a week!" The seed had been planted--a hot, buttery, starchalicious seed. We pulled up Yelp to see what the nearest baked potato options were. Aside from a couple of hoity toity sit-down restaurants and a ghetto bar and grill that nobody likes, the closest and most viable option was Wendy's. That's cool, Wendy's is fine (plus they have Frosties!). Before I left, Arden (our newest hire and admin extraordinaire) had pulled up Wendy's website to peruse the menu so he could decide on what he wanted. After seeing the baked potato offerings, he too wanted a delicious carb extravaganza: Jeff and Arden each wanted sour cream and chives potato, while Scott opted for broccoli and cheese and I wanted to stuff my face with a bacon and cheese potato. I took down everyone's orders and we ventured out to find the nearest pigtailed ginger girl grinning down at us. We got to Wendy's and I had the following exchange with the employee: Me: "Can I get two sour cream and chives baked potatoes..." Her: "Okay." [punches in order] Me: "A bacon and cheese baked potato..." Her: "We don't have those. We only have sour cream and chives." Me: "SON OF A BITCH!" Apparently Wendy's stopped carrying the three delicious baked potato options and now only offer "sour cream and chives" as your fixins. The employee noted that "They still carry the other toppings in Canada." Great, why does Canada get delicious melted cheese but we fat Americans don't? No fair. To assuage my outrage, the employee hooked me up with a bunch of bacon strips, which momentarily made me feel better. So, basically I drove all the way to Wendy's for the sole purpose of getting a bacon and cheese baked potato which was advertised on their website, only to find out that they don't carry those anymore. Talk about disappointment...you see where I'm going with this, right? Hopefully you're not rolling your eyes by now and going, "Okay, we get it. You felt like pigging out on crappy fast food and were mad that they didn't have the disgustingly unhealthy menu option you were craving. Post this crap somewhere else." Well, think about how pissed off you get when you're browsing through a website and find a product you really want to buy. Read Also:DOES COLOGNE EXPIRE OR GO BAD? You click on "Add to Cart" and begin the checkout process, only to find out at the last minute that the product is out of stock or doesn't come in the size/color you specified. Imagine how much more frustrating that is when you research online and want to make an offline purchase--you went to someone's website first and made the decision to make a physical trip to an establishment and purchase a product, and you're told by the employee that the item you made up your mind to purchase isn't available. Now picture this happening to your customers on your website. You know how frustrating it is to be the consumer when that happens, but as a seller/service provider, do you commit this cardinal sin? Do you offer products or services? Is this list up-to-date? What do you do with listings that are outdated or no longer available? If you forget to update your list of products and services, you're creating false expectations. Visitors are going to leave your site feeling disappointed, and they very well might associate your website with a negative shopping experience. To prevent a negative customer experience, try the following: · Make sure your list of services is constantly updated. If you used to offer a particular service but don't any more, remove it from the list. · If you still get contacted by folks looking to hire you for services you no longer provide, try to keep them satisfied by referring them to a colleague or to someone who can provide the appropriate service. · If you have a product that's sold out, specify it loud and clear on that product page. Inform customers when the product will be available again. You could offer to take back-orders or reserve products for customers in order to minimize grumpiness. · If your shipping takes longer than expected or if you have an especially disgruntled customer, offset his/her disappointment by offering an added incentive to make up for the inconvenience (free shipping on the next item, a coupon or discount, a free item, etc). Obviously you can't do this with every single customer, but if you make an effort to save the really pissed off ones, you're investing in your own reputation management. · If the product is being discontinued or will no longer be carried, don't leave it on your site to rot. 301-redirect any links to that product and point them to a similar product or to an appropriate category page. · If you have a physical store location (or several franchises) and advertise a product or deal on your website that may not be applicable or available in stores (ahem, Wendy's), explicitly state that on the page (e.g., " Offer may not be available in select stores," "Product may not be in stock in our physical storefronts"). What other suggestions/preventative measures you can think of? I'd love to hear them so that I can mail them to Wendy's and tell them they owe me a bacon cheese-baked potato.

Going on Vacation This Summer? Welcome to the 'Revenge Travel' Economy
The clock had not yet struck noon on a recent sunny day in Copenhagen, but the hour didn’t stop Hannah Jackson and her friends from ordering a bottle of Champagne. After the waiter at one of the outdoor restaurants that line the Danish capital’s colorful harbor popped the cork, the four women from Texas gleefully toasted to their European adventure. “This is my first trip in more than two years,” said Jackson, 32. “We are celebrating every moment we can.” Because no phenomenon can be real until it can be hashtagged, the travel industry has been quick to brand the impulse driving Jackson and countless others this summer as “revenge travel.” Likerevenge spendingand evenrevenge bubble-tea drinking, the phrase refers to consumers’ increased willingness to cough up cash after 28 long months of lockdowns and restrictions. In travel’s case, that means a newly unbridled demand for vacations that are more frequent, more indulgent, and—more than anything—far from home. That demand got a boost on June 13 when the U.S. stopped requiring a negative COVID-19 test for entry. But as it rises to and even surpasses pre-pandemic levels, a host of challenges, from inflation to war to, yes, the lingering threat of COVID-19, casts a shadow on the rosy predictions of a rebound. Will this be the summer in which the travel industry does indeed get revenge on the pandemic? Or will its hopes be dashed once again? “The truth is that tourism is rebounding very, very quickly,” says Luís Araújo, president of the European Travel Commission (ETC), which represents the continent’s national tourism organizations. “It’s quite impressive.” At this juncture, revenge travel looks to be off to a good start. Among Europeans, 70% are planning vacation trips between now and November, according to an ETC survey. The numbers are almost as strong among Americans, with 65% planning leisure trips within the next six months according to MMGY Travel Intelligence, a global marketing and research company based in Kansas City. According to Mastercard, bookings on short and medium-haul flights have surpassed pre-pandemic levels. And travel searches for the first quarter of 2022 were above their 2019 levels, according to Google, while searches for passport appointments jumped 300% in the first three months of this year. “Pent up demand is already delivering rapid growth,” says David Goodger, Europe director for Tourism Economics, a U.K.-based company that provides forecasting and analysis to the travel industry. It’s driven, he adds, “by excess savings accumulated during the period when people couldn’t spend or travel as usual.” Those extra savings are affecting not only the amount of travel people are undertaking but the kind of travel as well. After decades of appealing to budget travelers with low-cost flights and party buses, many European destinations are emerging from the pandemic with a new emphasis on upscale travel. “A lot of enterprises, big and small, have spent the past two years renovating their facilities, upgrading, investing in their hospitality—adapting to the new needs of the customer,” says Araújo of the ETC. “We also see a lot of countries adjusting their communication to high-end travel.” Certainly companies that specialize in high-end travel are experiencing a boom. At Black Tomato, a luxury tour company with headquarters in London, the interest in itineraries that have guests island hopping in Greece or bottling their own perfumes in Provence is at record levels. “Demand for Europe is insane right now,” says Brendan Drewniany, director of communications. “We’re advising our clients that if they want to go to specific destinations in Europe at this point they’re going to have to be pretty open-minded about alternatives.” Those extra savings are affecting not only the amount of travel people are undertaking but the kind of travel as well.

In fact, the notion of revenge travel first emerged ahead of the summer of 2021, when everyone thought the worst was over and the world would soon open up again. In many ways, it did. Domestic travel in many places surged to nearly 90% of its 2019 rates that summer, and, as MMGY senior analyst Leanne Hill points out, tourists spent unusually high amounts that were, she says, “largely revenge-travel oriented.” But slow vaccine rollouts and adoption rates, coupled with the slew of ever-changing travel restrictions and newly emerging virus variants ultimately stymied expectations. International tourism was down 67% in July 2021 over its rates that same month in 2019. This time around, the obstacles to the fulfillment of travel fantasies, vengeful and otherwise, are less about the virus (all of the experts TIME consulted agreed that there was little tolerance for more lockdowns and restrictions) than other ills that have sprung up in its wake. “Inflation and staff shortages is the twin-headed monster threatening the travel recovery this summer,” says Tourism Economics’ Goodger. Staffing shortages are cutting into service across Europe. Many hotels have responded by automating some aspects like check in, and trimming once routine benefits like daily room cleaning. Restaurants from Copenhagen to Madrid have cut their operating hours and, in some cases, shut down altogether. But perhaps nowhere is the impact of the shortage on travelers clearer than in the scenes of chaos emerging from airports across Europe and the United States: flight cancellations, long waits for baggage that frequently fails to appear altogether, excruciating lines through security. “Demand is ramping up much more quickly than businesses, having shed workers during the pandemic, have been able to recruit for,” says Goodger. And although American travelers are, according to MMGY estimates, planning on spending an average of $600 more per trip than they did a year ago, it’s unclear, analyst Hill says, “whether that’s because of increased costs or overall willingness to spend more.” There are clear signs, she adds, inflation is definitely starting to bite. “We’re beginning to see travel intentions start to erode slightly, particularly among travelers making less than $100,000.” Those concerns are echoed among Europeans travelers, according to the ETC, which found that while only 7% of travelers expressed concern about inflation and costs affecting their vacations in 2021, 13% do so now. At the high end too, pricing is “definitely a real challenge,” says Black Tomato’s Drewniany. “Hotel properties are all still recouping and it’s not that they’re trying to be extortionist, but prices are definitely worse. So it’s a challenge to explain and translate that to clients.”
14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both?

I HAVE to try putting a peanut butter cup on a s'more. It's a physical need. And if I don't do it soon, I might explode.
