It’s the holiday season and I think this might be our Christmas Card this year…
Chocolate Caramel Crackle Cookies

Ok, I’m kidding! But it looks good, right?

With the hustle and bustle of parties, family, friends, work obligations, decorating and shopping everyone needs a simple, easy, looks-like-you-spent-hours-on-it-but-really-didn’t treat! Here it is. My gift to you. You’re welcome! 🙂

Chocolate Caramel Crackle Surprise Cookies!
(recipe inspired by the back of the Ghirardelli box and leftover candy in my pantry!)

1 box of your favorite Brownie Mix (I used Ghirardelli Double Chocolate!)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup powdered sugar (reserved for coating)
30 Rolo mini’s, unwrapped. (Be creative! Any small candy treat will work-mini peanut butter cups, Hershey’s kisses, maraschino cherries, use whatever you’d like!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Place brownie mix, flour, eggs and oil in a medium bowl. Stir until blended. Place powdered sugar in a separate bowl. For each cookie, scoop 1 rounded tablespoon of dough and wrap it around a single piece of candy. Roll the dough gently in your palm to form a ball. Place the dough ball in the powdered sugar and roll again until coated completely. Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Depending on your oven, bake 10-13 minutes until the cookies have crackled and look a bit dry on the top. Do not let them brown!

Makes 30 cookies

Start to finish these cookies took me about an hour to complete. Not bad, right? Don’t worry, it will be our secret. I’ll swear you spent forever on them. Now, let’s grab a glass of milk and share something sweet!

    I made these this morning for my girls to take to school and share. Well…… They shared themselves right out of all of them and never got to try them! Their fiends loved them and so did my husband. We are making more tonight!! Thank you thank you!
