Considering they one of my favourite things to bake, I can’t quite believe that I’ve never included a cookie recipie on Musings & More. When in New York, I had an incredible M&M cookie (see here) that I loved so much that I desperately wanted to recreate. So here’s my attempt for your enjoyment! I’d actually go as far as saying it’s even better than the original as there’s 3x the amount of chocolate (it is me after all)! These babies are so quick to make that you could easily whip up a batch the night before work or when you just fancy something (very) sweet. I went with M&Ms but there are so many different combinations you could make these cookies you’re own: salted caramel, peanut butter cups, smarties…the list is endless. Enjoy!
To be perfectly honest with you, I very nearly didn’t post this recipe for my caramel cookie bars. It wasn’t because I didn’t thoroughly enjoy them (they were epic, FYI), but simply because they didn’t look as perfect as I’d imagined in my head. I’d wanted clean cut layers but because I hate making my own caramel and opted for a cheat version instead (sorry Mum…), the caramel didn’t set as well and I was left with gooey layers which spilled over the sides. I received only sheer enthusiasm from anyone who gobbled one but I guess I was looking at it from a purely aesthetic, bloggers view. Figures, huh? So I’ve posted these bad boys anyway, purely because if I don’t say so myself, they taste amazing. Naturally they’re not going to win any healthy eating awards but damn, they’re worth it.
