Welcome to Day 2! These were the very first batch of cookies I made when beginning to test recipes for this series. I made them in early October and it was like 80 degrees here (which is odd). It did not feel like the holidays and yet I knew instantly that these would make the top 12. They met every criteria I look for: easy, beautiful to look at, and mouthwateringly delicious.
You just can’t go wrong with these. My friend Anna at Cookie Madness gets credit for the recipe — I just adapted it a little because I didn’t want to unwrap all those caramels! (I used the Kraft Caramel Bits instead!)
Sweet, salty, crunchy, creamy…these are a no-brainer for your holiday baking list!
p.s. Make sure to cut these into bars when they’re cold (right out of the fridge). It makes a much cleaner cut. I find the Kraft caramel bits at Walmart in the baking section.
