Peanut Butter Cup & Dark Chocolate Carmel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookie Dough and Candies on Countertop

While you’re waiting, be productive:  Unwrap your PB Cups.

And I thought the dark chocolate Dove candies with caramel centerswould be lovely, too.

Make sure little helpers don’t eat the whole candy pile.

Skylar actually is very trustworthy.  She knows to sit tight because this food is going to be on mommy’s blog.  And after all the pictures have been taken, she gets her tastes and sample bites.  The offspring of food bloggers learn young: pictures first, eating second.  Don’t touch til we get the shot.

The 6-7 Minute Wait Is Over.  Remove the lightly browned cookies from the oven, which puffed up nicely.

And drop in the candies.  The sound that the barely-there cookie crust made as I punctured the barely browned surface with the chocolate candies was the sweetest little music to your ears that you could ever imagine.

Peanut Butter Cups make me happy!

And Dark Chocolate Caramels.

I bet Mounds Bar or Almond Joy or Snickers Bombs would be tasty too.

Back into the oven for another 4-6 minutes or until done.
**Note the chocolate will not really melt, so watch the cookie part, not the chocolate candy part, for doneness.

Remove from Oven and Let Cool Completely…

Clearly if you bake it you’re un-raw’ifying this.  But tasty for sure!
