Peanut Butter Caramel Surprise Cookies
Get started!


1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 (10-ounce) package mini milk chocolate caramel-filled candies, unwrapped, cut in half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add peanut butter, eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed, scraping bowl if necessary. Add flour, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape rounded tablespoonfuls of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Press candy half in center of each ball, cut-side up. Form dough around candy, completely covering candy. Place, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. (Cookies spread and flatten as they bake.)

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Remove to cooling rack.

Tip #1

Milk chocolate-covered caramel, peanut and nougat miniature (not fun size) candy bars will also work in this recipe. Use a whole miniature candy for each cookie.
