Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cookies, a recipe from Seduction in the KItchen

Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cookies

March 25, 2014Deanna

I officially made back home to Pittsburgh, I am on vacation! I did see a great surprise right before I left for vacation, Ziplist featured one of my recipes and it viral! That was so nice to see that people really liked my BBQ Battered Fried Mushrooms. Funny, that idea for that came to me when I was about 13, I think that is why I am amazed. I admit I love fried mushrooms, and happy to see others like that recipe as well.

Speaking of love, chocolate, I am right now craving dark chocolate. I love pairing dark chocolate with caramel. The sweet with dark chocolate is a great combo. Since I knew I was coming to PA, I always bake my family goodies. I made Maple Brown Sugar Bars, which I will post later on, and these cookies.

What is nice about cookies, especially a drop cookie, is it a basic recipe and then you add to it. That is how you can come up with different variations. This cookie, because I am putting so much into it, as far as for add ins, you have to balance. You can’t do a whole bag of chips, but 1 huge dark chocolate bar is the perfect amount. Playing with the proportions to get the correct combo is the fun in making your own cookie recipe. That is what I did. I played until I created a great tasting cookie.
