Milk Chocolate Caramel-Filled Chip Cookies

If you give a mouse a cookie….

He’s going to ask for a glass of milk.

And then he’ll probably want a straw.

As I was looking at these shots of my latest twist on chocolate chip cookies, I couldn’t help but be reminded of that fun children’s book.

Especially after this stack – I kept thinking… more – More – MORE!

Milk Chocolate Caramel Filled Chip Cookies and Milk

I bake chocolate chip cookies A  LOT.

I’m kinda known for it.

Especially with our sons’ friends.

And I love the joy it brings – the smiles they create – the happy tummies – the grateful hugs.

But I get bored with the same old thing, so I am always looking for a way to change them up a bit – as you may have noticed if you’ve been hanging out here at LifeinBetween.me for any length of time…  (Fresh Raspberry Chocolate Chips, Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip…)

This latest version was a BIG HIT!

Instead of semi-sweet morsels, I used the new Nestle Toll House Delightfulls Caramel Filled Morsels.

Could you just die?!!?

Milk Chocolate Caramel Filled Chips in a cookie!!

I used my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe – subbing these DELIGHTFULL morsels for the regular chocolate chips.

Easy Peasy – and guaranteed to be a Big Hit with whoever you decide to share these with!

And PS – I had forgotten how amazing a chocolate chip cookie tastes dunked in milk!     I have not done that in ages, but sampled a bite after this “photo shoot.”

Grab a glass of cold milk – even if it is Skim – and DUNK!

Pure delight!

  2. I need to go make some cookies, but I know they won’t look as tasty as yours!! I just want to reach through the computer and grab one! 🙂 And I always loved those “If you give a Mouse a Cookie” books.

  3. Can I not just eat these pictures!? Ah they look super delicious! I’ve never tried anything branded Nestlè Toll House but hopefully soon.. For now every time I hear the name I have this scene in my head, when Monica has been trying to replicate Phoebe’s grandma’s famous cookie recipe days http://youtu.be/F1ShzUEKqgc
