Surprise-Inside Caramilk Cookies
Recipe type: Cookie
Total time: 
A chewy chocolate cookie with a Caramilk surprise inside!
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling cookies in
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Cubes of Caramilk bar (about 4-5 bars)
  1. With electric mixer, cream together butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients into the creamed mixture and stir to combine.  Chill mixture until firm – 2-3 hours. (You can also leave it in the fridge overnight.  It will be all melty in your hands if you don’t chill it.)
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350ºF.  Place some dough in your hand (about a teaspoonful) and shape it around a chocolate chunk.  Make them fairly small so the chocolate chunk isn’t too far away from the edges once it bakes.
  4. Roll the ball in a bowl of white sugar and place on greased cookie sheet.  Do not press down, they flatten as they cook.  Bake for 12-13 minutes.
