Caramac Caramel Cookies


Hello and thank you for stopping by. I may have a huge teeny tiny confession to make. I love Caramac! Nothing wrong in that except after I’d seen some some amazing Caramac Cupcakes over at Janes’s Pattiserie I asked my Hubby to pick up a few bags of Caramac buttons for ‘baking’. And after I’d eaten all of them my friend bought me some more AND I ate those! So you can imagine my family’s relief when I finally got around to baking these oh-so-good Caramac Caramel Cookies.

Caramac love

If you haven’t tried Caramac before, they are a bit like white chocolate with a hint, just a hint of caramel flavour. When I was younger and even still today, I had to be careful how much chocolate I ate as it triggers migraines in me. Caramac bars were my go-to alternative. And I’d ‘almost’ forgotten about them, until Jane posted her cupcakes!

Caramac buttons! You can buy Caramac buttons now. Forgive me, I am slightly over-excited!

And the rest as they say is history. Because everyone knows chocolate buttons taste better than a bar. Since they fit so nicely in my mouth and are just the best with a hot cup of tea. Finally, you now you know how I became hooked on Caramac again!

The Best Cookies

Although I used Caramac bars to melt and drizzle over these utterly perfect Caramac Caramel Cookies. Because I simply couldn’t bring myself to use the buttons. I will do, just taking things one step at a time.

These light, chewy cookies are a caramel lovers dream. First of all, the brown sugar in the cookie dough, along with the butterscotch chips, give these cookies an underlying caramel flavour, with bursts of pure caramel flavour. While melted Caramac drizzled on top adds an extra creaminess that completely rounds the flavours out and makes these Caramac Caramel Cookies so good.

Absolutely perfect for Caramac lovers, chocolate haters or avoiders and Cookie Monster’s like me!

Recipe: Makes 20 Caramac Caramel Cookies

225g/8oz Soft Light Brown Sugar

150g/5oz Unsalted Butter- at room temperature

2tsp Vanilla Extract – I use Nielsen-Massey

1 Large Free Range Egg – plus

1 Large Free Range Egg Yolk

275g/10oz Plain White Flour

1/2tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

1/4tsp of Salt – I use Maldon 

150g/5oz Toffee/Butterscotch baking chips

120g 4 X Caramac Bars for the drizzle – use can use buttons if you prefer. Alternatively you can use Cadbury’s Caramilk or Milkybar Gold as a substitute.

Method: Preheat the oven to 170C/150C fan, gas mark 3, 325F.

Making the cookie dough

  • First of all line 3 large baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Place the sugar and butter in a large bowl and whisk/beat for 5 minutes until pale and creamy – whisking for 5 minutes here and then after adding the eggs is very important to the finished texture of the cookie.
  • Add the vanilla extract and the eggs and continue whisking/beating for a further 5 minutes.
  • Sift in the flour, bicarb. and salt.
  • Add the toffee/butterscotch chips.
  • Fold all the ingredients together until you have uniform cookie dough.

Shaping and baking the cookies

  • Using a medium sized ice cream scoop, or a spoon and your hands, scoop/roll 5cm/2″ ball of cookie dough and place onto the baking tray.

Space the cookie dough balls apart as they spread whilst baking.
  • Using clean, slightly wet hands squish the cookie dough balls fairly flat. They should be about 1cm thick.

This ensures that they bake evenly as they spread.
  • Place the baking trays in the middle and lower parts of the oven and bake the cookies for 15 minutes exactly.
  • As soon as the baking time has elapsed remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool completely on the baking trays.

  • As soon as the Caramac Caramel Cookies are cool they are ready for their Caramac drizzle.

Adding the Caramac drizzle

  • Break up the Caramac bars and place in a heatproof, microwaveable bowl.
  • Zap the Caramac in 30 second spurts until it starts to melt, stirring in between each zap!
  • When the Caramac is half melted (mine took just over 1 minute), remove from the microwave and stir until it is all melted.
  • Using a teaspoon, drizzle the melted Caramac over the cooled cookies.

  • Finally, leave the cookies to set.

These Caramac Caramel Cookies will keep for 5 days in an airtight container – if they last that long 😉.

While Caramac bars and buttons are available in most supermarkets and local grocery shops, the buttons were bought from Asda. Most importantly, this IS NOT a sponsored post, I simply want to make sure that you can get hold of these delicious Caramac buttons to try. I take no responsibility for anyone who becomes hooked on them, since they are very more-ish!

Caramac Caramel Cookies

Because we always have cookies in our house, I start most days with a cup of tea and a cookie. Also, if I am late eating breakfast or miss it completely (I do try not too), then I have enough energy to keep me going. And it’s always nice to have something on hand to offer visitors when they pop in.

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

And, for an extra yummy, dessert, these cookies make fantastic ice cream sandwiches! Simply scoop a generous amount of ice cream on to one cookie and top with another. And then squish together and enjoy this delicious treat!
