Caramel white hot chocolate cookies with toasted marshmallow and gooey salted caramel - www.yummycrumble.comJust like one of my favorite Christmas songs, It’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  The Perry Como version of course.  As soon as Target gets their Christmas goodies up in the back of the store,  my insides squeal like a little girl.  This time of year is absolutely perfect.  Except for one thing.  No snow here in Orlando.  Bummer.  No snow equals no toasty hot drinks made of dreams.  Also known as hot chocolate.  So…I did what any sugar fiend would do!  I made hot chocolate into a cookie!

Caramel white hot chocolate cookies with toasted marshmallow and gooey salted caramel - www.yummycrumble.comIn all the excitement of my bright (and original for sure) idea, I googled hot chocolate cookies just to check.  A bazillion different versions came up.  Boo.  This seems to happen a lot, but after reading a post over at Love From the Oven I said to myself, “To heck with originality!  If it tastes good make it and share it!”  But since I’m scared of the recipe blogging police, I shook things up a bit.

Caramel white hot chocolate cookies with toasted marshmallow and gooey salted caramel - www.yummycrumble.comI didn’t see many White Hot Chocolate Cookies and to make sure I wasn’t stepping on anyone’s toes.  Bam…Salted caramel to spice things up.  They turned out awesome.  It’s a chewy white chocolate chip cookie that gets broiled right at the end while it’s smothered with salted caramel and squished with a gooey marshmallow.  Read that sentence back to yourself and ponder how violent and painful that would sound to a cookie.  Oh well, in the name of Christmas!
