Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies

 Triple Chocolate Caramel Cookies
I love caramel, chocolate and pecans together. While I had recipes for cake, cheesecake and candy that feature this combination, I didn't have one for cookies. So I came up with this recipe.
36 ServingsPrep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 package (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 bottle(12-1/2 ounces) caramel ice cream topping
  • 4 to 6 ounces dark chocolate candy coating, melted

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat
  • in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and cocoa; gradually add to the
  • creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  • Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 3/8- to 1/2-in.-deep
  • indentation in the center of each ball. Smooth any cracks. Fill each
  • indentation half full with caramel topping.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until caramel is very bubbly
  • and cookies are set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire
  • racks. Drizzle cooled cookies with candy coating. Yield: 6 dozen.

Editor's Note: Confectionary coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometimes labeled "candy coating" and is often sold in bulk packages of 1 to 1-1/2 pounds.
