These little cookie cups are very easy to make. I made them for Super Bowl Sunday and they were a big hit.

If you like chocolate and caramel, I'm sure you will like these.

A Betty Crocker recipe.

Valerie, these have got to be the easiest best tasting cookies I've ever made. I have a recipe where the chocolate cookie dough gets wrapped around a rolo and then rolled in chopped pecans. Same taste, but these cups are now taking their place. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Just out of the oven...YUM! Had to sample one! I wasn't able to find Betty Crocker brand; thus, I substituted Krusteaz triple chocolate chunk. My baking time was about 10 minutes (oven temps do vary as noted in an earlier post). Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe and Merry Christmas!
