I have a sweet treat to share with you in honor of Valentine's Day.
My friend and professional baker Brooke told me about these bars from Two Peas and Their Pod, and I knew I had to try them!
I have only made them with my staple cookie recipe. (Recipe below.)
But I just had Brooke's that we made from their recipe too, and they were incredible.
Mine come out less of a bar and more of a thick cookie, both are amazing!
(adapted from my girl Caitlin's recipe)
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla
3 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 bars good chocolate, chopped*
1/2 bag chocolate chips*
*I alternate the bar of chocolate and the chips, I like to have mixed chocolates.
For example, bars of dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips.
If I don't have bars I will just use two different bags of chocolate chips.
10 oz caramel squares
3 T evaporated milk
Sea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Make the cookie dough.
Melt caramel and evaporated milk in a pan, stirring constantly.
In a 11x7 pan put a layer of cookie dough,
Add caramel on top, sprinkle with sea salt
Drop small spoonfuls of cookie dough on top, covering caramel.
Sprinkle more sea salt.
Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.
Let cool, it is even better the next day when the caramel has cooled.
