Ugh, not another chocolate chip cookies recipe! I know that’s what you’re thinking and I don’t begrudge you for a moment. That is precisely the reason I thought so long and hard before posting this recipe. No doubt, your Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is impeccable, and far be it for me to suggest otherwise, BUT, if you ‘re in the market for a crispy, caramelized, chocolaty cookie and want to venture out a bit, this is a great one to try!
My kids and I have a deal, if they see a treat that they would like to try, I get first dibs on making it for them at home. I always show them the list of ingredients with the inevitable inventory of unpronounceable preservatives, chemicals, coloring and fake flavorings and explain that these are not real food. Even at a young age, they came to understand that anything made from natural ingredients, rather than chemically altered substances is not only better for them, but tastes phenomenal compared to its engineered counterparts. This is exactly how these caramels came to be.
