Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Falynn has always been our little fashionista #ad But now that she's older, she's discovering her own sense of style. She prefers shorts to dresses, hats to headbands and would call her own style "swagalicious," if you ask her. She was super excited to receive this new #BMR1959 Ken doll! She must have spent 15 minutes describing each piece of his outfit. She really got a kick out of their matching hairdos! I love watching her enjoy @Barbie as much as I did as a kid! BMR1959™ is perfect for the holidays! These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. Is #Barbie a staple in your home as well? .

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.
