Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A sweet, soft cookie with a delightful caramel crunch! Who could ask for more?!


1 c
crushed werther's caramel hard candies
2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
1/2 c
crisco shortening
1 stick
(1/2 c) unsalted butter, softenend
1/2 c
1/2 c
light brown sugar packed
1 tsp
1 1/2-2 Tbsp
instant coffee granules
4 tsp
2 c
(1 pkg) semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
shortening or butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375F. In a bowl, add all your dry ingredients and sift or mix well.
In your mixer bowl or bowl using hand mixer, beat your sugars and butter and shortening till light and fluffy. Turn off mixer. In a mini bowl, disolve the instant coffee with the water. Add to the cream mixture, add your vanilla, finally your egg.
Slowly add your dry ingredients, till soft dough forms. Turn off mixer. Add your crushed pounded caramels and stir into batter till thoroughy incorporated. **See Cooks Notes

Using a small wet cookie scoop (wet - meaning that you dip the scooper in water every 2-3 scoops to ensure easier handling), scoop out dough and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven, and let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes till able to easily remove without breaking unto the cooling racks.
When all the cookies are on the cooling racks. Place chcolate chips and butter or shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Nuke in 10-15 second increments till very glossy and liquid. Add chocolate mixture into a squeeze bottle and drizzle over cookies. Or, you can use the back of a spoon if desired.

Cooks notes: Please use 2 gallon size bags to crush the Werther's caramels using a meat grinder or rolling pin. If you place the candies in a food processor, they will grind up nice and fine, however, it will change the conistency of the cookie. Place candies in one bag, place another bag over, and then take out your frustrations....

I don't have any werther's on hand, but I do have a bag of the Kraft caramel bits...think I will give them a try in place of the werther's..although, caramel werther's are pretty hard to beat. Darn I wish I had some...I guess I need to make my 55th trip to the store this! :) You ladies are killin' me with all these yummo cookie recipes...
