Chocolate caramel blossom cookies are a fun twist on a traditional cookie! Fudgey, chocolate cookies rolled in sugar and topped with a caramel-filled chocolate kiss!
There are two kinds of people. The “there-is-such-thing-as-too-much-chocolate” people. And then there are the “give-me-all-the-chocolate” people. If you belong in the first category, you may excuse yourself for today. 😉
Now. My people.
These fudgey chocolate cookies are soft with a crisp, sugared exterior and are topped with a caramel-filled, milk chocolate Hershey’s kiss. These cookies are a love letter to chocolate and a crush on caramel.
Beware that this recipe makes a lot of cookies! And while I totally understand that our relationships with chocolate are long-term, I would start planning out your cookie delivery list, unless you want to be nose deep in chocolate cookies for a couple weeks.
I also think these cookies would be truly special with the cherry cordial-filled chocolate kisses. (Those pink ones at christmas time and valentine’s day!) But I am pretty partial to caramel.
The trick in getting those pretty blossom cookie shapes is mastering the cook time. I highly recommend baking a couple test cookies to nail down the timing before you bake everything up.
Watch those cookies carefully–you want to take them out of the oven when hairline cracks have JUST BARELY started to appear around the edges of the cookies. But they haven’t made it to the top of the cookie and they have not started to spread whatsoever.
After you remove the cookie, you will press the kiss down through the top “crust” of the cookie, which will create more cracks all over the cookie as the top “crust” bends inward. If you’ve left the cookies in the oven too long, then instead of bending and cracking, the cookie’s exterior will actually break along the existing cracks and kind of fan out the tops of the cookies. Hard to explain, but you’ll recognize it if you’re seeing either case. If your cookies break, never fear – just drop the time down by a couple minutes and try again!
