Has anyone else been watching Food Network’s new show Tough Cookies? I haven’t been watching it religiously but if I catch it on, I may stop to see what kind of cookies they’re baking. A few days ago I caught one episode where they were adding candy pieces into a cookie for their local mayor. They added Rolo caramel chocolates and that got my mouth watering and my mind wandering.
So off to the store I went but they didn’t have Rolos, so I found some Dove caramel milk chocolates instead. I knew that I wanted to actually put the candies inside each cookie and not just on top. Picky Palate had just the right recipe I was looking for. So here’s what I made.
Just by looking at them you’d think they were just average run of the mill chocolate chip cookies. But you’d be oh so wrong about that! These buggers have one whole Dove caramel chocolate stuffed in the center to make a gooey, chocolaty secret treat!
OMG, just look at that sweet liquid caramel center. They are so delicious! The Dove caramel candies give these cookies an added sweetness that makes your knees weak.
I am so excited about these darn cookies, they are that good! I couldn’t wait for hubby to walk through the door from work. I practically shoved a cookie in his mouth as soon as he came in. And don’t worry, he went gaga over them just like I did.
You only get about two dozen cookies out of this batch but they are pretty large cookies. They’re each about the equivalent of two average sized cookies.
