Caramel Sundae Cookies are an amazing combo of chocolate, toffee and caramel. You won’t even miss the ice cream.
I love a good ice cream sundae. My favorite sundae is vanilla ice cream with caramel and hot fudge sauce on it and a sprinkle of toffee chips or chocolate jimmies. I like a bit of crunch on my ice cream. These caramel sundae cookies include all my favorite sundae flavors except for the vanilla ice cream of course. But you could always make an ice cream sandwich out of them and then you would have the ice cream too! I haven’t tried making an ice cream sandwich out of them yet but now that I’ve mentioned it, I’m totally doing it!
I only make these cookies when I have a party or potluck to go to. The reason is that if I don’t, they are so good, I end up eating them all myself. I must have somewhere to take this cookies and someone to share them with for my own safety.
The cookie itself, has chocolate chips and toffee bits in the dough. If you are a “nuts in your baked goods” kind of person you may want to include some chopped pecans. But I am not that kind of person. The crowning touch is melted chocolate and melted caramel bits drizzled over the top.
Allow the caramel and chocolate drizzle to set up a bit before serving for less mess. Sometimes I just can’t wait that long so I’ll pop them in the refrigerator for a few minutes and that takes care of the problem.
This is a good one and I guarantee you, you’ll get asked for the recipe or if you’re me, you’ll be asked “is the recipe on the blog?!” I always know I’ve got a winner when that is the first question people ask. Now I can answer, yes! It’s on the blog!!
