Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies ~ Loaded with chocolate, caramel and toasted pecans!Tis the Season for cookies! Who’s excited? I see you raising you hand over there…and you…don’t be shy go ahead and raise your hand too. I hope you are ready for some yummy holiday treats coming your way.
You see, I’ve been planning out my posts for the next few weeks and I started noticing a theme. Lots of treats, hardly any main dishes. Are you ok with that? If you aren’t you might want to avoid this blog for a few weeks. That would be a shame though because man oh man do I have some yummy treats baked up for you. And really, who wants to miss those? Not me! Don’t worry I’ll try to sneak a few main dish meals in there.
Let’s get real though. Even if you don’t admit it I know you are here for the goodies! Goodies like these Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies. As you have probably noticed I don’t make a whole lot of chocolate here on the blog. This is due to the fact that I really shouldn’t eat it. Like I get sick if I eat to much. Pretty sucky huh? On second hand, maybe I should make more, then I can’t eat the treats and my hips wouldn’t get larger. Only my coworkers would…insert devil laugh here!
When I need chocolate recipes tested they go straight to work like these little treats did. I have a “Chocoaholic” coworker and she is my true taste tester bless her heart. She definitely approved of these treats that’s for sure!
Know what else is pretty “sweet”? I’m giving away a Heirloom Cookie Sheet too! Oh wow you have to check these out. When I received my cookie sheet in the mail I couldn’t figure out if they sent me bricks or what. This thing is heavy duty and baked up your treats just perfectly. Another thing I love about this company is it’s family owned! I love supporting family owned businesses. It feels good to give back to another family instead of a giant manufacturer.
As you know the holiday season is right around the corner and many of you are starting to think about present time. These cookie sheets would be an awesome gift idea for that person that you never know what to get or a young couple celebrating their first Christmas! You could even get creative and send along a box of cookies like my Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies!
