I have been on a cookie kick lately. From my roundup of cookie recipes last Friday to sharing two cookie recipes on Monday...cookies have been on my mind! They are the perfect holiday treat for family and friends - they package well, they can be made a million different ways, and who doesn't love a cookie? I have been brainstorming cookie recipes over the last few weeks and trying to think of the best possible combination for testing out the new Nestle Toll House DelightFulls filled morsels. They come in four different combinations: mint + dark chocolate, cherry + dark chocolate, peanut butter + milk chocolate, and caramel + milk chocolate. I picked up two of the four to make my own Nestle Toll House Holiday recipe :)

At some point, I will share the second recipe using the DelightFulls filled morsels and also another cookie recipe using Nestle Toll House morsels. Unfortunately, they are just a limited edition regular-sized unfilled mint and dark chocolate morsels, but they were so delicious! And I couldn't stop there, after seeing many posts featuring the peanut butter filled morsels, I picked some up at the store yesterday. But I cannot figure out what recipe I want to make with them. Nestle has a whole slew on their website (here), but they are so many I cannot choose - HELP ME! What would you make?

But alas, today is all about the lovely the caramel filled baking morsels. I will share my cherry filled baking morsels cookie recipe very soon - promise! It is such a great recipe - it's hard to pick which one is my favorite :)

So today is all about the Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Cookies...again, I made these with the caramel-filled morsels. These morsels are a little larger than the regular morsels and will hold their shape while baking. I chose to keep mine whole, but you can also chop them up. Initially, my brainstorming led me to using the caramel-filled morsels in a hot cocoa cookie recipe because last year I hoarded a bunch of different flavors of hot cocoa, like salted caramel, marshmallow, double chocolate, and mint. I grabbed them specifically for making cookies and forgot to make some.


The recipe is easy and comes together just like most any other cookie recipe - mix together dry ingredients, cream together wet ingredients, add dry to wet, and stir in your "candies" - so there is nothing complicated about it. The DelightFulls add a whole new scrumptiousness to these cookies that they definitely would have missed without them. I also really appreciate not having ugly cookies with caramel bits that burnt to the bottom of the pan when they leaked out. I think we've all had that happen a time or two :) The DelightFulls keep in line and in the cookie!

One thing I am hoping to do next time I make these is to add a sprinkle of sea salt on top - the salted caramel hot cocoa mix gives a slight saltiness to the cookies that makes you want to just keep on eating them, but I love a cookie with a little sea salt on top! I'm really excited to share these since I got SO many out of just one batch. The kids are bringing some to their teachers, for sure, and I'm hoping to take some over to our new neighbors since they were so kind as to have brought us cookies when we first moved in :)
