Chocolate and peanut butter are my kryptonite. Ok, so maybe just sugar in general can do me in.
But chocolate and peanut butter are at the top of that sugar list. I have the hardest time resisting treats with those two ingredients in them. So why do I keep making things that I’m going to have a hard time saying no to???
Well, I’m just trying to practice my self control. Just so you know…mission stay out of cookies this weekend was a complete and utter failure. Tomorrow is a new day…
Although, there are still quite a few of these cookies in the kitchen, so I’m thinking my new mission should be avoid the kitchen at all costs. I haven’t figured out how I’m going to get the juice from the fridge on this new mission. Or how I’m going to make kids lunches…me thinks they are on their own in the morning.
Good thing two of them have finals and get to leave before lunch. And the youngest lives on Ramen, so he can handle that on his own. Sheeewww…I’m glad this worked out in my favor today. Now making dinner might pose a new set of problems. Drive-thru, anyone?
Let’s just talk about these problem cookies for a minute. We all know how much fun I have been having hiding candy inside cookies, right? I mean these Cinnamon Caramel Cookies speak for themselves.
So, when I found a bag of peanut butter Snickers minis at the store, I just had to bring them home with me. Then the caramel cake mix in the cupboard started calling out and asking to be made into cookies. It was fate that these cookies happened in the kitchen soon after that. Fate or a diet gone way wrong…I’m not sure which.
When you pull the cookies from the oven, you are going to think they are undone. Don’t be alarmed! This is how they should look. I only bake mine for 10 minutes. This will produce a soft cookie inside. If you want to bake it another minute or two, the cookie will be more firm inside.
Then let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for a few more minutes. The heat from the pan will continue to cook the cookies. Use a flat spatula to tap the tops of the cookies before moving them to parchment paper to cool all the way.
I’m not going to lie…these cookies look kind of ugly when they cool. But I fixed that by adding a chocolate glaze on top. It hides the bump in the cookie from that hidden candy bar. And let’s face it. Adding more chocolate is never a bad idea!
