We love cookies at our house and we love caramel corn so why not combine the two! What’s not to love about a caramel corn cookie? We have a little bit of a caramel corn theme going on the blog here this week. Did you see my Caramel Corn Sundae from Monday??
I am a big fan of adding fun things into my cookies to give it texture and flavor. Who would have thought that adding caramel corn into your cookie would work? But it does!
There are several things I love about this cookie. The caramel corn doesn’t give the cookie a lot of flavor but it gives it a very fun texture. The great flavor in this cookie comes from the almond extract. I am a huge fan of almond. If you aren’t just substitute vanilla extract instead.
I purchased caramel corn at Trader Joes but the cookie would probably be even better if you made your own caramel corn. Our favorite caramel corn recipe can be found here.
