These are chocolate cake-like cookies with a chocolate frosting on top and a caramel surprise in the middle. Dough needs to be refrigerated overnight or for a couple of hours to be easy to handle. Hope you enjoy! Adapted from Taste of Home.

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Add egg, milk, vanilla extract, and chocolate and stir.
  3. Combine together the flour, baking powder, and salt and then gradually add to creamed mixture.
  4. Cover dough and refrigerate overnight or for a few hours so it is easy to handle.
  5. Cut each caramel piece into fours.
  6. Shape about a tablespoon of dough around each caramel. Be sure that all the caramel is completely covered and place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes or until set.
  8. Cool cookies on wire rack.
  9. For frosting, combine the confectioners' sugar, chocolate, corn syrup and enough water to make a thick spreading consistency.
  10. Frost cookies and if desired, sprinkle with pecans.
  11. When I made this recipe I was only able to make around 30 cookies, so if you want more cookies, use less dough around each caramel. Watch baking time, because they bake up fast!
