Chocolate Caramel Bit Cookies
I should have guessed it.
Picture this. Your husband and your 3 year old go on a daddy daughter vacation for 10 days to the east coast. You have never ever ever been alone in well, 3 years. When you first ponder this trip you day dream about all of your time, naps, and general goofing off that will take place.
Now the day has arrived and they are gone, and your lost. My heart aches a little, my time away is super hard to enjoy.
The oddest thing, I miss them and they are so much a part of me that I would rather be drop dead tired taking care of my family then lounging around the house alone.
"Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." I miss them.
Here are the things I miss currently
1. Indigo & Husband
2. Fitting into Size 8 pants
3. Eating everything that I want when I want
4. Eating everything that I want when I want and fitting into a size 8 pant
5. The chocolate caramel chip cookies in this post - yes they are gone
6. Fitting into size 10 pants after number 5
INGREDIENTS (2-3 dozen)
Delightfully borrowed from Rookie Cookies
2 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup caramel bits or chopped up caramel squares
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Set oven to 350°F.
Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar. Add eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in caramel bits and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until set. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
