The Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F
  2. Using a hand mixer to beat the cake mix, butter, and egg until it is granular in texture
  3. Use your hands to press the crumbs into a firm dough.
  4. Use a tablespoon to portion the dough, then roll them into balls.
  5. Transfer the balls to a lined baking tray and use the flat of a glass or cup to press the dough balls into 2-inch thick discs.
  6. Bake the cookies until they are set. Don’t allow them to brown.
  7. Prepare the toppings while the cookies cool down.
  8. Place the milk and caramel pieces into a microwavable bowl. Microwave the two for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after every break until completely melted.
  9. Use a teaspoon full of caramel to pour atop the cookie and spread evenly with a knife. (Stop to spread the caramel every 5 or 6 cookies)
  10. Remove the cake from the pan, cool, and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
  11. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave by repeating the same method used in softening the caramel. Once melted, stir in the vegetable oil until  Blended.

Melting Method

Both the chocolate chips and caramel bits were melted down in the microwave using 30-second intervals to stir and heat until done. Using this method is quick and helps to control the temperature, thus preventing the caramel and chocolate from burning.

 

Making the Dough

For this recipe, you can use either a stand or hand mixer to combine the butter, cake mix, and egg until it is crumbly in texture. But what if you don’t own an electric mixer? Well, mixing by hand is just as effective! Simple use a medium bowl, and a wooden spoon to stir the ingredients until the desired texture is achieved

 

Storage

To keep the cookies fresh, store them in an airtight container and place them on a shelf away from heat. These will last for up to 2 weeks. For long-term storage place the cookies in a ziplock bag and freeze for up to a month.

 

These crunchy little treats are the perfect snack for kids and adults! They’re easy to make and fun to assemble, turn this into a family activity, and have everyone customize their own cookie! eat these with a tall glass of cold milk and or a scoop of your favorite ice cream and you’re set!
