Ooie-Gooie-Chocolate -Caramel-Macadamia Chunk Cookies

Inspired by a combination of two cookies prepared at this year's National Cookie Challenge, here's my take on the ultimate chocolate chip cookie!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter & sugars in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, extracts, syrup, and cream.
  2. In another bowl, sift and mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips, oats, and toasted nuts. Fold dry ingredients into butter mixture.
  3. Chill dough for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 and PLACE A PIECE OF PARCHMENT PAPER ONTO YOUR COOKIE SHEET.
  4. Place a heaping tablespoon of dough into palm of your hand, and press one chocolate covered caramel candy into center of each piece of dough. Wrap dough around candy, covering completely.
  5. Bake cookies for 14-16 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool in pan until well set, then onto rack. Don't eat hot, as caramel is LAVA-like 8-).
  6. Serve with *plenty* of milk.

These were great, and had a really interesting texture due to the combination of flour and oats. A bit too sweet for my taste, so I'll tweak it a bit next time. If you don't have the macadamia nuts, feel free to omit them: I made half with nuts and half without, as my partner can't have nuts; upon tasting both, I couldn't honestly tell a difference. Thanks for the great recipe!

I made these at the request of my DD who wanted a cookie we had never had before. I saw this one and decided to try it. I can't believe it hasn't been reviewed!!! These cookies are A_W_E_S_O_M_E!!!
