Chocolate Caramel Cookies
20 Min

Our Chocolate Caramel Cookies are simple, decadent, and sinfully good. With each bite, you get the buttery texture from the shortbread, the ooey-gooey pull from the caramel, and the richness from the chocolate. In short, they're a real treat!

What You'll Need

  • 3 sticks (1-1/2 cups) butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 (11-ounce) package caramels
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Add flour, salt, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon water; mix well.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut our 2-inch circles using a biscuit cutter or a small glass. Place cookies on baking sheets.
  4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden on bottom. Let cool on wire rack.
  5. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine caramels and remaining 1 tablespoon water. Microwave 30 to 60 seconds or until melted, stirring occasionally. Spread caramel evenly over cookies; set aside to cool.
  6. Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening. Microwave 60 to 75 seconds or until melted, stirring occasionally. Spread chocolate evenly over caramel and set aside until chocolate hardens.
