Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies – Messin’ with Perfection

As if I haven’t posted enough junk food lately….but after I made those Chewy Orange Cookies, I couldn’t stop thinking about these things I already had in my cupboard, just waiting to be tossed together in this combination.

Another cake mix cookie combination, and this one is just as good!  It just appeals to a different taste.  Caramel and chocolate is one of those matches made in heaven, I think.  I had a caramel cake mix stashed away, then I remembered these new chips by Nestle – the filled ones – in three different flavors.  Didn’t I pick up one of the caramel filled ones?   Hmmmm, must check.  Bingo!  How good could this be?  And how simple….

Well, it worked, and quite well I must say.  One cake mix to one bag of these little chocolate-caramel gems and you have yourself a quick and dirty but totally delicious cookie.

Have you ever had one of your kids forget to tell you that you’re supposed to bring a snack to school tomorrow?  Need quick snacks for packed lunches?  These go together in about 5 minutes, and take maybe 40 minutes to get them all baked.  I have a large cookie sheet and scooped about a tablespoon per cookie, fitting 16 cookies to a sheet.  It made exactly 2 sheets full, 32 cookies.  Use parchment paper and you don’t even have to wash the cookie sheet when you’re done!

Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe type: Snack
Quick and delicious cookies for any occasion!
  • 1 box Caramel cake mix - I use Duncan Hines
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 bag Nestle caramel filled chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. (this is optional. If you don't have parchment paper, use a good non-stick cookie sheet. No need to butter the sheet)
  2. Dump cake mix, eggs, butter and vanilla into a medium mixing bowl and beat at medium speed for about 1 minute. Gently fold in caramel chips.
  3. Scoop by tablespoons (or whatever your size preference) onto cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes. Oven temperatures vary, so watch them after about 12 minutes.
