One of my guilty pleasures I love to do around the holidays is browse the baking and candy section of stores to see what unique flavors are available. Some of them are seasonal, like pumpkin spice chips and gingerbread candy. Others are not, like caramel and peanut butter. Back in October just shortly before Halloween, I was stocking up on chocolate chips that were on sale at Target when a shiny new product caught my eye – flavored-filled chocolate chips known as Nestlé® Toll House® DelightFulls™ Filled Baking Morsels. At first I thought I was living under a rock, so I instagrammed them and asked if they were new. Did you know about them? Turns out they are brand new with four flavors – caramel, peanut butter, mint, and cherry. I wanted to try them out, so when Nestlé asked me to develop a recipe to share with you, I knew it had to be spectacular. I didn’t want to just make a chocolate chip cookie; it had to be more showstopping than that. I’ve kinda been obsessed with cookie dough recipes lately – peanut butter cookie dough sandwich cookies, cookie dough cheese ball, cookie dough ice cream pie – that I thought cookie dough was the best way to showcase the filling without getting lost. Then I started thinking about my best-ever marshmallow brownies and decided on these Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. Fudgy caramel brownies on the bottom, chocolate chip cookie dough in the middle, and a chocolate layer on top. Whether you make them to share for the holiday (imagine giving a box of these to a friend!) or as an everyday treat for the family, you won’t regret these decadent caramel brownies.
What is it about cookie dough that makes us obsessed? Probably because it’s like the forbidden fruit of the dessert world where eating raw cookie dough would lead to salmonella poisoning. Lies I say, but just in case, this cookie dough is egg free.
The caramel-filled baking morsels give it a nice surprise because who expects a bite of caramel when the average chocolate chip is solid chocolate? Certainly not me. This recipe would work with the peanut butter-filled morsels as well, especially if you use peanut butter in the brownies and chocolate topping.
I’m definitely a fudgy brownie kind of girl, and that’s exactly what these are. The caramel and caramel-filled chips help tie it together flavor-wise with the cookie dough. You can either make your own caramel sauce or pick up a jar. Trust me – you can never have too much caramel in a brownie.
Ready to make these cookie dough brownies? You can find Nestlé Toll House DelightFulls Baking Morsels in the baking aisle next to the regular Nestlé Toll House chocolate chips. For recipe ideas for all four flavors, visit Nestlé’s website.
