We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number.

Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor for National Cookie Day, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good… the third time I made them!

I found the initial, caramel macchiato thumbprint recipe on the Betty Crocker website, though I did change it a bit. Honestly, the first two batches were a disaster. I couldn’t quite figure out how to incorporate the caramel without making a HUGE mess or making our fingers super sticky. The first time, I tried the thumbprint on top of the cookie and it kind of melted all over the place. The second time, I drizzled it all over the top of each cookie and they were really hard to handle. While they were yummy, our hands were super sticky.

My Nana always told me if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. So, for the third batch, I decided to try stuffed cookies. Placing the caramel inside each ball of dough seemed to do the trick (though there were a few that fell out of the bottom once they were cooked, so make sure that the caramel is in the center of each dough ball, and have the dough covering the caramel completely, all around. I found that setting the piece in the center and then rolling the dough around it, worked well.

Caramel Stuffed Macchiato Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love caramel macchiatos, you will absolutely love the cookie version! We took chocolate chip and espresso cookies and stuffed them with caramel.
Course: Dessert
Keyword: cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch sugar cookie mix
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 3 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1 bag chocolate chips semi-sweet or dark
  • 14 oz bag caramels

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • In a mixing bowl, add hot water and espresso powder. Powder should dissolve right away.
  • Add cookie mix, flour, vanilla, egg and butter and mix until combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and hand stir until well distributed.
  • Unwrap caramels and cut them in half.
  • Shape dough into 1in balls with one or two pieces of caramel in the center of each dough ball.
  • Place dough balls into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool for 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks and allow to fully cool.

My kids were honestly unsure about how they were going to feel about these cookies. I think the word “espresso” freaked them out a bit. They were sure they were going to taste like coffee (a flavor that they aren’t quite into at their ages, though I was sneaking sips of my Nana’s iced coffee since I was much younger than them).

Although they were messy, they really loved the first two batches. Truth is, the espresso flavor isn’t as strong as you might think (though you can make it stronger by adding more espresso powder).

The stuffed caramel batch was their absolute favorite. They went back for seconds and even thirds. They were pretty much gone within an hour so they’ve already requested that I make one more batch this weekend. How can I say no to that request? Plus, Super Dad is really looking forward to dunking one into his weekend caramel macchiato! YUM!

If you plan on making these or any of our other recipes, I’d love to hear how they turned out. If you have any other suggestions for how to incorporate the caramel, share it! I’m all for trying new options that I missed!

If you love caramel macchiatos, you will absolutely love these! We took chocolate chip espresso cookies and stuffed them with caramel.

XOXO
