Caramel Christmas Cookies

What’s better than delicious Christmas cookies? HOME-MADE Christmas cookies. Yes, that’s right- we baked something that tastes and looks good (‘we’ being my boyfriend and I). We decided to impress his family by whipping up a batch of festive sweets for their Christmas party, and these photographs are the result!

I don’t know about you, but baking during this season seems to make the kitchen experience 100% more exciting. Between the carols playing in the background, the reindeer oven mitts and the limitless number of deco-inspo posts floating around Pinterest, cooking is transformed into a festival of festivity. Even if the finished product doesn’t quite resemble a Betty Crocker wonder meal, that touch of home-made-ness just serves to add an extra tablespoon of sweetness.

We switched up your average choc-chip recipe by sneaking pieces of caramel Cadbury bar into the middle of the dough. To learn how to replicate our dessert, have a wander through this article, and if you enjoy it, please let me know in the comments below.
