These Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies are loaded with chopped pecans, chocolate chips, and yummy caramel bits! Grab a glass of milk and enjoy a few!
I may say this every time I share a cookie recipe with you, but these are probably my new favorite cookies ever! Right up there with these Everything But the Kitchen Sink Cookies and these Snickerdoodles. I’m a sucker for a good, soft chocolate chip cookie! These take it to a whole new level of deliciousness with add-ins. I typically don’t ever get to have nuts in my cookies because my kids turn up their noses, but this time I dared to do it. 🙂
And, guess what? They did not complain one bit! They were so distracted by the melty chocolate and soft caramel bits nestled inside the incredible cookie that they didn’t seem to notice.
We’re on the final countdown until school lets out for the summer! My kids are chomping at the bit. We have lots of fun plans for the coming warm months and they are burning out with book work. So one thing that I love to do for them is to have warm cookies waiting as a surprise when they come through the door after a long day to sweeten the deal.
They beg for chocolate chip cookies nonstop! And since I’m always craving them too, I’m never sad about having to whip up a batch! I really enjoy coming up with new recipes, and since I’ve made so many chocolate chip cookies in my life, it’s not typically too challenging to throw a little of this and a little of that together to make the perfect cookie ever time! I admit that I typically don’t even look at a recipe card anymore. I like to make it up as I go! These might be my best concoction yet! I think you’re going to love them!
We just received an email from our school district saying that they are proposing a bill to lengthen the kids’ school year by 12 days. Talk about kids’ worst nightmare! I’m pretty put off by it too. If it happens, it would most likely take away from their summer break, which we feel is already too short. I love having them home for as long as possible to party and have fun in the sun together. So we are crossing our fingers that it doesn’t go through and taking every measure possible to let our voices be heard. We are a very academically-focused family but we also believe that kids should have lots of time to play!
One thing that seems to make everything better when we’re anxiously awaiting a big decision like this, that is out of our hands, is a few chocolate chip cookies! Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies, that is!
I hope you get to enjoy these very soon! They are SO yummy! We served these for dessert to company and they couldn’t say enough good things about them!
