Recipe Comments & Reviews

i am making these right now . i used chocolate and butterscotch chips , added extra of both chips and pretzels (just eyeballed it till i liked the amount ) very good..
When making cookie dough is it necessary to refrigerate the dough before baking it? I find that the edges burn quicker if I do not cool first.
Test Kitchen Comment


Refrigerating cookie dough, particularly like the dough in this cookie, helps to ensure the cookie will not be so flat when it is baked. I often refrigerate the dough about 30 minutes before baking the cookies.

I am a caramel and chocolate lover and this was right up by alley. I could not find the caramel swirl chocolate chips so like a previous commentor I used the chocolate/butterscotch chip combo. The only thing I will change when I make them again is to add more crushed pretzels.
This recipie is very easy and requires very little ingredients outside the average kitchen cupboard. I put a little spin on my cookies. I wasn't able to find the choco/carmel chips so I used choco chips and butterscotch chips (plus the pretzels). My coworkers were raving all day! :)
This cookie was delicious although I did make some creative changes with the recipe. I did not have any of the chocolate and caramel swirled chips so instead I used chocolate chips and a partial bag of caramel bits (used to be melted for caramel apples)....totally delicious blend of sweet and salty! A definite hit with my family!
I love these cookies!! My new favorite. Very moist!
