Caramel Maltesers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Caramel Maltesers Chocolate Chip CookiesMy favorite chocolate chip cookie kicked up a notch with a messy drizzle of gooey caramel and a generous helping of crushed Maltesers Candies.  You’re welcome.

Caramel Maltesers Chocolate Chip Cookies You know what’s super terrifying in Dubai?  Not the camels that have been known to bite fingers off, or spread MERS among happy and oblivious tourists.  It’s not even the 12 types of venomous snakes found here.  It’s the insanely dangerous drivers.

Here’s a scary fact:  Everyday an average of 2 people are killed on the roads here.  Everyday!

 When I first started driving here I literally had to pack extra pants from all the “Omigod, he’s coming into my lane and I have no where to swerve!” moments.  Don’t get me started on their roundabouts.  Please for the love of God, send some Dutch people over here to teach everyone how a roundabout works!

Caramel Maltesers Chocolate Chip CookiesI think I have figured out why they drive so insanely fast though.  When you’re driving on a major highway and miss your exit, you think “No biggie.  I’ll just grab the next exit, swing a u-ey, and be on my way.”  Nope.  Not in Dubai. You have to drive about 2 miles out of your way to find a underpass just to go the opposite way you were driving.  Then when you find yourself driving back to where you missed your exit, guess what?  There’s no @#&! exit on that side.  So now you have to drive another 2 miles for another magical underpass, and by that point you’ve lost 20 precious minutes of life to the Dubai road system.  People are driving like maniacs because they’re trying to get back that 20 minutes.  Or they’re just crazies.  The plus side?  You learn your way around Dubai real quick because you vow to yourself you will NEVER EVER miss an exit again.

Let’s talk about these Caramel Maltesers Chocolate Chip Cookies though.  I would totally give up 20 minutes of life for these.  I actually did.  I ended up eating so many I camped out on the sofa and watched the Disney Channel with my kids.  Because I didn’t want to search for the remote.  A cookie overdose will totally do that.

    Oh my gosh, I think I would be camped out o the couch longer than 20 minutes with these babies. They look amazing!! Also, every day that I’m not on the highways in the Dominican Republic is a good day. My husband and I did an internship there one summer and I thought we were going to die. What is it with the crazy round abouts?? Eat cookies and stay home Katheen, I don’t want you to die 🙂 🙂
