It’s another weekend, and another cookie post. I’m here for it this year, I’m going hard on cookies for the winter. Have I ever not gone hard for? I’m not sure. But I am sure that these cookies are some high-level-delicious stuff you guys. HIGH. LEVEL.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you already know that I’m working with Nestle Tollhouse for a few months to share some of these really amazing new chips they are selling. These are, and I’m not joking, Salted Caramel Truffles. They are little caramel truffles.

In these cookies, they become little pockets of caramel and chocolate that are absolutely amazing. I’m adding chopped pecans, and some dark chocolate chips here as well because let’s just go for it okay? What you get is a loaded up cookie that has AMAZING flavors. These are without question my favorite cookies I’ve made in years you guys.

It’s a super simple dough to put together, and they bake up perfectly every time. The base dough is actually what I use for the Chocolate Sugar Cookies you can find in Sugar High. Speaking of my book, it’s the perfect gift for Christmas, just sayin. And if you’re in the Denver area, check on Facebook for any upcoming book signings!

Anyways, back to the recipe, let’s not mess around anymore. Make these cookies, you won’t regret it! Enjoy!
