Chocolate Caramel Cookies (Makes about 50 cookies)
|Seriously, this recipe makes 50+ cookies. |
What? I live with two dudes who can put away a lot of cookies.
I might have eaten a few too.
½ cup butter (1 stick)
10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (or other, fancier chocolate of your choosing)
¼ cup beer (preferably something dark, like a porter) I used Evolution’s Lucky 7 Porter1 ½ cup flour
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 package caramels for topping
|Dough, a beer, chocolate and beer.|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
Melt butter, chocolate over low heat until completely melted. Add beer and remove from heat. Allow to cool.
Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Slowly add in chocolate mixture and mix completely. Begin adding flour mixture in thirds. Make sure to mix completely before adding more flour mixture.
Drop by small spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Unwrap caramels and slice in half. Place one half on top of each mound of cookie dough.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool. Eat and enjoy!
|If I had a candy thermometer,|
I would make caramel all the time.
And be really fat.
I can't lie...I bought a 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips...and proceeded to munch on the other 2 oz. while baking these cookies...hence the odd amount. I did manage to save a few for the last batch of cookies, which got mixed in to the dough. They chocolate chunks definitely added to the overall deliciousness.
