Better than Anything Cookies
It tastes just like the famous cake, but in personal cookie form. These are my new favorite cookie! They are SO good!
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 (3.9 oz) box Devil's Food Pudding Mix, dry
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2¼ cups bread flour, all-purpose works well, too. I notice softer cookies with bread flour.
  • 36 (half inch) cubes homemade caramels, Rolos, Kraft caramels or caramel bits work fine, too, but I notice they get really hard once cooled which is why I prefer homemade caramel.
  • 1 (10.6 oz) tub Vanilla Cool Whip Frosting, thawed in fridge. You can find it next to the tubs of Cool Whip
  • Heath bits for topping
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together.
  2. Add dry pudding mix and mix well.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add baking soda and flour and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Grab enough dough to make a 1" ball and flatten it out in the palm of your hand. Place one 0.5" caramel cube and place it in the center of the flattened dough. Fold up the edges of the dough around caramel and roll into a ball, making sure the caramel is sealed in the center of the dough ball. Place on greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. 9-12 cookie dough balls per cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wired cooling rack.
  7. Once cookies have completely cooled, frost with Cool Whip frosting.
  8. Sprinkle the tops of the frosted cookies with Heath bits.
