Caramel Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies

I made these cookies for Thanksgiving and they were a bit hit. They have a rich, chocolatey flavor, and the caramel adds a sweet and chewy element. I hope you'll try them!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips, or semi-sweet
  • 30 soft caramel candies, unwrapped (I used Werther's Soft Caramels)


1.    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat baking mat and set aside.

2.    In bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whip the butter until smooth and creamy, about a minute or so. Add the brown sugar and the granulated sugar. Continue beating on medium speed for 2 more minutes, until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl as necessary.

3.    Add eggs, one at a time. Then add the vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Mix until smooth, scraping sides of bowl to fully incorporate ingredients. 

4.    In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, sift in the cocoa, and stir to combine. Turn mixer to low and add the flour/cocoa mixture to the wet ingredients a little at a time, mixing until just until the dough comes together.

5.    Remove the mixing paddle and stir in chocolate chips with a large spoon.

6.    Flatten caramels using fingers or a rolling pin.

7.    Scoop dough using a medium (2 tablespoon) cookie scoop and form a well in the middle of each cookie. Press a caramel into the indention and seal dough around caramel, making sure no caramel is exposed. Place cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet.

8.    Bake for 9-11 minutes until edges are set. Do not overbake. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

If you love holiday romances, I have several to offer.
