Baking Instructions

Start by preheating the oven to 350 F and lining baking trays with parchment paper.

Sugar Cookie Base

In a large bowl or in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on beat butter and white sugar together until light and fluffy. This usually takes about 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix till well incorporated.

In a separate large bowl whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix till combined. Scoop 3 tbsp worth of dough into a ball and place on the baking trays 2 inches apart.

Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cookies cool on the pan.

Caramel Sauce

Let cookies fully cool to room temperature before adding the caramel sauce and chocolate.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the unwrapped caramel squares and heavy cream. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.

Evenly divide the caramel sauce over the cookies. Spoon the sauce in the centre of each cookie and spread, making sure to not spread over the edge. Work fast because the sauce does harden quickly.

Chocolate Ganache

After the caramel is on the cookies let them sit in the fridge for a few minutes while you make the ganache.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips, set aside. In another microwave safe bowl add the heavy cream and heat till just before boiling, (about 30 seconds).

Pour the heated cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for a few minutes. Mix chocolate and cream together. If there are still chunks of chocolate in the microwave for a few seconds and stir again. The ganache should be completely smooth. Evenly spoon and smooth the ganache over the caramel layer of each cookie.

Let cookie sit in the fridge for a few minutes to stiffen the ganache before enjoying.

Storing The Cookies

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. You can keep them at room temperature but the ganache will melt in a warm house. When storing in the fridge be sure to bring cookies to room temperature before enjoying.

Can I Make the Cookies Smaller?

Yes, you can definitely make the cookies smaller. Instead, scoop 1.5 tablespoons worth of cookie dough and bake for 7-8 minutes. The amount of caramel sauce and chocolate ganache stay the same.
