Caramel Chip Cookies

Caramel Chip Cookies

Those of you who know me personally (or follow me on Instagram), know that I went through a little bit of a crazy baking period during my summer holidays.  I went through about 6kgs of flour, too many blocks of butter to admit count, 4kgs of confectioners sugar, and endless hours frolicking around in my kitchen to happy Christmas tunes (yes, I am one of those people 🙂 ).

Don’t get me wrong – to me, baking is never a chore. But granted, there did come a day where mentally, I was exhausted! But as they say, the mind has difficulty speaking with thy heart and in my case, I was still itching to bake more!

Caramel Chip Cookie

And so I decided to bake these super duper seriously eeasy (with a double e for added emphasis) caramel chip cookies! They’re drop cookies so there is no need to waste precious time refrigerating them as you can simply bake them as soon as you stir through the caramel chips.
I also added in some desiccated coconut into the mix for slight texture, and the creaming of the butter and sugar in the first step ensures a nice soft cookie.

This seriously is a very simple cookie recipe, so if you’re either short on time, or having a disagreement between your head and your heart, bake these babies and rest assured, things will look a lot more sweeter (yes, pun completely intended) 😀

Have fun! 😀




  1. I love coconut. These look dangerous – the sort of biscuit you can’t stop at one!

  2. Hi! I’m not able to find caramel chips where I live… is there a substitute? I don’t want to use chocolate chips because… well you know it’s not the same 😦

    • Hi Archie, whenever I don’t want to use chocolate chips in my recipes I usually just take whichever chocolate bar I feel like and chop it up into small pieces and dump that into the mix. So I guess as an alternative to the caramel chips you could use your fave choc bar. Hope that helps! 😀

  3. These Look delicious!

  4. These look amazing!

  5. I must admit I am one of those people too! Haha. I had so much fun one night, baking shortbread and listening to my Christmas albums. These cookies look delicious!

  6. I feel sad for diets… this looks scrumptious!

  7. Shame I didn’t get to try them 😦 as with all your baking now sigh sigh
