It’s fall, yall!

And that means cooking and baking and cooking some more-whether you like it or not!  Now I love to cook, but baking is still an ongoing teaching process for me and today was no exception. My thought process was to whip up some Chocolate Chip Caramel Nut Bars (recipe from Nestle) but apparently I cannot read and ended up with Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookies.

Which, BTW, are divine.

The original recipe reads as follows:

Chocolate Chip Caramel Nut Bar

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (softened, divided)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (divided)
  • 1/2 cup caramel syrup or ice cream topping

Directions:

  • PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 8-inch-square baking pan.
  • PRESS 3/4 package of cookie dough into prepared baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes
  • SPRINKLE 1/4 cup nuts over cookie crust; drizzle caramel syrup over nuts. Top with teaspoonfuls of remaining cookie dough; press gently into caramel syrup. Sprinkle with
  • remaining 1/4 cup nuts
  • BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack

My unintentional but still totally awesome altered version of this recipe:

Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookies

  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (softened, divided)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (divided)
  • 1/2 cup caramel syrup or ice cream topping
  • bag of mini Nestle Toll House chips, semi-sweet
  • PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease baking pan.
  • Make balls of dough and put on pan and bake for 10 minutes.

 

  • SPRINKLE 1/4 cup nuts over cookie crust; drizzle caramel syrup over nuts. Add extra mini chocolate chips, cause why not….

 

  • Watch kitty watch you bake. She is such a scrounger. I actually left the kitchen unattended for a minute and came back to her eating cookie dough right out of the package!!

Tip for the cookie version: If you put too much caramel it will spread onto the pan and burn the edges of your cookies. Once cookies are completely cool you can actually break the extra caramel off or even use a pizza cutter around the edges.

The moral is that sugar burns if you are a messy baker like I am.

Now you can head over to Nestle on Walmart and get your own Caramel Cornucopia recipe or any other of your favorite fall flavors like mint or pumpkin!

There are quite a few worth pinning! And while you are checking it out, can  can also print a great coupon for a free bag of candy when you are stocking up on pizzas!

 Tell me, what is your favorite fall flavor?

And if you got this far, please consider pinning or thumbing up! It makes me happy when you like cookies!
