print recipe


  • Salted Caramel Bar Mix
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) + 1½ Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

cooking methods

  • Bake


Preheat oven to 350°. Combine Salted Caramel Bar Mix Packet 1, ¾ cup butter, egg and water in a large bowl. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place on a large baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes.

Remove from oven. Using the back of a measuring teaspoon, press down to make an indentation in the cookies. Return to oven and bake for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet 1 minute. Transfer to a cooling rack placed over another baking sheet.

Prepare the caramel Packet 2 according to package directions using the remaining 1½ Tbsp. butter and milk. Let cool 5 minutes. Place 1 tsp. cooled caramel in the center of each cookie (there will be some leftover caramel).

Microwave chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl for 20 seconds; stir. If needed, microwave for another 5-10 seconds and stir. Microwave until chocolate is smooth and shiny. (Overheated chocolate will become dry and chunky.) Add chocolate to a sandwich-size resealable bag. Clip off a small corner and pipe chocolate over the cookies. Sprinkle with desired about of salt. Refrigerate cookies to set caramel. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes 22 cookies.

Freeze & bake later:
Roll dough into 22 balls and wrap in plastic. Place Packet 2 in a quart freezer bag; seal. Place wrapped balls and the quart bag in a gallon freezer bag; remove air, seal and freeze. When ready to bake, remove from freezer, thaw and bake as directed above.
