My baking experiment #64 – caramel brookies

I never had milk duds before. Got a pack from Walmart and tried it. Love the caramel-y flavor. Thought it would be good in a cookie: a caramel cookie. But i also felt like having a brownie. So, why not combine them?

Brownies

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder + 1 Tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Instructions
Cookies
  1. Add sugars to melted butter. Stir until completely combined. Add caramel and egg. Stir to combine.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, stirring until just combined.
  3. Fold in milk duds and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8×8-inch pan and set aside.
Brownies
  1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, egg and vanilla. Add oil and stir until completely combined.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, instant coffee, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add to sugar mixture, stirring until just combined. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and spread evenly.
  4. Place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove brownie and top with cookie batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter across pan, then gently spread until brownie is completely covered.
  5. Place pan back in oven and continue to bake 25-30 minutes. Serve with a giant scoop of ice-cream!

Yum! This brookie is super yummy: a chewy, buttery caramel cookie baked onto a decadent, fudgy chocolate brownie. The only problem was the cookie seems to have eaten the brownie. It was mostly cookie with a little bit of brownie on the bottom. Not that i’m complaining; i do love the caramel cookie! But next time i’ll probably double the brownie and half the cookie, because i think the brownie should be the star.

Nevertheless, I made a giant brookie sundae and devoured the whole thing. Part cookie, part brownie, a whole lotta yumminess! 🙂
