  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 cup caramels


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use parchment paper or a silpat mat to line a baking sheet. 
  • Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are blended.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add in flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Mix until all combined.
  • Scoop out 24 equal cookie dough balls (they should be 1 TBSP of dough – I recommend a 1 TBSP cookie scoop). Roll each cookie dough ball in the finely chopped pecans. Place on prepared baking sheet - 12 cookies per sheet.
  • Bake for 8 minutes. Cool cookies cookie sheet for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack. NOTE: If you decide to make the bigger cookies, you’ll need to bake them for 12-14 minutes.
  • While cookies are baking, melt the caramels.


  • Place the caramels and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in microwave 30 seconds at a time stirring in between. Stir. Place the melted caramel in the refrigerator while the cookies bake and cool.


  • Place the milk chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in microwave 30 seconds at a time stirring in between.


  • Top each cookie with a teaspoon of caramel and gently spread around. Repeat with all the cookies. Place the caramel topped cookies in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes to set.
  • Remove cookies from fridge and top each on with a teaspoon of melted chocolate and gently spread over caramel. (Optional: Top with 1/4 of a mini Twix candy bar.)Return cookies to refrigerator to set for about 20 minutes. Enjoy these cookies chilled right out of the refrigerator.
