Caramel Bits are new to me and I must admit that I devoured a few right out of the bag...tasty little gems!
This cookie recipe combines some wonderful ingredients and please be advised that parchment paper works much nicer than the Silpat on this particular cookie.
Here are the little caramel morsels and believe me they are just the right size for a snack!
Chocolate Chip Cookies With A Twist:
1 cup softened butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
3/4 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup caramel bits
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Mix butter, sugar, and eggs together until light and fluffy, then add vanilla. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder and add to the butter mixture. Blend in oatmeal, Rice Krispies, caramel bits, and chocolate chips just until incorporated.
Form dough into small balls and place on parchment line cookie sheets...slightly flatten dough with the palm of your hand.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
I left the cookies on cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing to cooling racks.
Do enjoy the cookies and be sure to pop a few caramel bits into your mouth while making cookies!
