My Life of Travels and Adventures: Chocolate Cookies with a Caramel Center

Chocolate Cookies with a Caramel Center

Chocolate Cookies with a Caramel Center
Our move back to NY this year, meant that we travelled to Philly for Thanksgiving.  So I needed a dessert that would travel well, could be made ahead of time and was yummy.  
I came up with these Chocolate Caramel filled Cookies.  They were easy enough to make and held up fairly well for the 6+ hour drive.  
I had a couple issues with caramels oozing out of the cookies while cooling, but Neil happily ate those “rejects” for me.  
These are best when warmed a little.  That way the caramel is nice and gooey!

Ingredients:
1 ½ C Flour
¾ C Cocoa Powder
1 ½ Tsp Baking Powder
10 Tbsp Butter, Softened
1 C Sugar
½ C Packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 ½ Tsp Vanilla 
½ C Confectionary Sugar
24 Caramels

Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Butter a large cookie sheet. 
  3. Using an electric beater, whip the butter, sugar and brown sugar together until slightly fluffy (about 4-5 minutes). 
  4. Add the eggs, vanilla, baking powder and cocoa powder.  Mix well. 
  5. Slowly add the flour while mixing. 
  6. Using about a 2-3 Tbsp size scoop of dough, press a caramel in the middle and form a complete ball around the caramel. 
  7. Roll fully in confectionary sugar and place on the buttered cookie sheet. 
  8. Bake for 17-20 minutes. 
  9. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.  (This is where some of my caramels fell out the bottom of the cookie while cooling).
  10. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
