Caramel Filled Brownie Cookies

Have you ever made brownies into cookies?

I have.  A lot.  While I LOVE brownies – I truly do – sometimes I just want a cookie, and a deep, dark, chocolaty cookie is what I’m after.  These Caramel Filled Brownie Cookies fit that bill.

So how do you make brownies into cookies?

Simple.  You make your batter, whether from a favorite recipe (like this one!) or from a mix (yeah, I cheat, too – it’s so easy!).  Now, instead of pouring the batter into a pan, you just scoop it onto a cookie sheet.  See? Cookies.

I totally invented that, by the way.

No, I didn’t.  But I wish I had.

Anyway…

I was inspired to make these cookies because some bigwigs at a huge company thought I was up to the task of creating a recipe with one of their new products.  Maybe you’ve heard of them?

Nestlé® Toll House®.

That’s right.  THOSE people.  Not one to back down from a challenge (especially one with delicious potential), I set out to use their new Nestlé® Toll House® DelightFulls™ Filled Baking Morsels.  Have you seen them?  They’re a little larger than chocolate chips, but each one is filled with some kind of crazy goodness.  Cherry, Mint, and what I chose to experiment with – caramel.  They are a great way to play with old recipes and make them fresh by getting two flavors in one.  I can’t wait to play with them some more!

For my recipe, you could honestly use ANY of the flavors, and the results would be divine.  Each little morsel offers a punch of unexpected flavor, and with the holidays coming up, it’s really nice to be able to share a treat with your friends and family that is a little unexpected, don’t you think?

I think so.
