Course: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Servings: 18 cookies

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 and 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 18 soft caramel candies. I used Werther's Original Soft Caramels cut in half they were about a half inch in diameter

Instructions

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cornstarch. Stir into the wet ingredients. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Chill the dough for at least 3 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Roll tablespoons of the dough around the caramel candies. Chill for at least 20 more minutes to firm them up.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until set. Do not over bake the cookies. They should like slightly doughy when they are taken out of the oven. Let cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
