My Favorite Salted Caramel Cookies

Your kids need chocolate.

You need chocolate.

Your husband needs chocolate.

Without chocolate, life is boring.

Dull.

Colorless.

Don’t give your child a colorless childhood — just don’t go there.

Salted Caramel is My Favorite Combination

But salted caramel and chocolate is even better than chocolate!

Salted Caramel Cookie Recipe

There’s a yummy ingredient that’s tucked inside each of these cute little cookies.

Enter sweetened condensed milk.

Condensed Milk Makes These Cookies Soft

My grandmother put sweetened condensed milk in everything.

She always had a can — or fifteen — in her pantry.

Oh, Grandma! How I miss your yummy recipes!

I love having guests over for lunch, dinner or just a late night snack.

I love “wowing” them with homemade cookies that are just as purdy as they are yummy.

Yes, I said purdy because that’s what my grandpa always said.

So purdy it is.

Moving on.

Salted Caramel Cookies Need Drizzles of Chocolate

One of my drizzle secrets is drizzling slow and steady with a fork.

It just makes those chocolate and caramel drizzles fall in just the right place.

No globs.

No unidentifiable goo.

Just purdy little drizzles of dee-lish yumminess!

Ready to dive into this cookie that’s perfect for a rainy, busy, sunny, lazy, crazy, laid-back, any-kind of day?

OK mamas — preheat those ovens!
