  • IMPORTANT: This dough must be chilled to prevent the cookies from spreading!
  • Beat sugar, milk, butter, egg yolk + vanilla
  • Add in flour and cocoa until combined.
  • Chill the dough for 1 hour.
  • When ready to bake, roll balls in 1/2 tablespoon increments.
  • Make indent in center of cookies using your thumb or the back of a teaspoon
  • Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350 for 10-12 minutes. We put 12 cookies on a standard sheet but they don't spread very much
  • As soon as cookies come from oven, re-press the center of the cookies to make an indent as they will have risen. Fill the indention with caramel and return to the oven for 1-2 minutes until the caramel spreads and is smooth in the center
  • Optional: When cooled - drizzle with red and green chocolate
