Dark Chocolate & Salted Caramel Cookies

Salted caramel cookies feature

I hope your week is going well lovely people.

No complaints coming from this family of 5, we’re fortunate enough to be having ourselves a sneaky family holiday up at Noosa this week (accommodation is much more affordable outside school holidays). The kidlets have been swimming their little hearts out, so much so that yesterday even one 9-year-old had himself a little afternoon snooze while Alani caught up on some much needed Zzzzzzzzz’s.

I know I’m on holidays but I couldn’t resist the urge (yes I’m addicted) to share another delicious treasure with you all.

Who loves Salted Caramel…….ME! And who loves Dark chocolate……..ZADADA!

So with Valentines Day just around the corner I thought I’d be fair and bake a batch of ‘Dark Chocolate & Salted Caramel Cookies’ to satisfy both mine and Zadada’s taste buds, I will add the kidlets taste buds were more than satisfied too!

If valentines day isn’t for you that’s ok, personally I love any day that might prompt Zadada to buy me flowers, I love them maybe even more than salted caramel? (maybe not, but don’t tell Zadada that!). The good news is you don’t need a particular day or date as an excuse to bake these mouth-watering morsels, I would happily indulge myself any day or night and now that night has been mentioned, these cookies are perfect for turning into a dessert, just try giving one a zap in the microwave for 20 seconds and serving it with a scoop of your favourite ice cream, you’ll be in sweet foodie heaven!

Three simple but delicious ingredients are the secret in these cookies…A block of dark chocolate (the higher the cocoa content the better), a packet of werthers caramel chews and some sea salt, the remaining ingredients are pantry basics.

Here’s your How-To:

  1. Dannielle, these look absolutely heavenly. I think I will have to give them a go. So great to hear you’re having an amazing time in Noosa and the kids are swimming up a storm. Sounds perfect. It’s a little rainy here in Brissy this morning, but hopefully you’re nice and dry where you are xx

  5. Oh hello, aren’t you a clever cookie (so punny :) ) Who knew a little Werthers could be so versatile.
    I am firmly in the salted caramel camp by the way.

      Hehehehe, thanks Nicole 😉
      Oh werthers are versatile indeed…I don’t mind adding them to the odd blondie, Nutella crumble slice or Cookie! So good!
      I tried Pork belly with salted caramel sauce last week, as much as I love Salted Caramel I’m still not sold on the combo, think I need to try it again you know just to be sure, interesting to say the least. x
