Servings: 22


  • 1 boxed White Cake Mix I prefer Betty Crocker
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Caramel Bits from an 11 oz bag
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 and 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or shortening


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat together the cake mix, softened butter, and egg until incorporated and crumbly.
  • With your hands, press the crumbs together to make a stiff dough.
  • Roll a rounded tablespoon of dough into a ball. It should be just under 1.5 inches in diameter. Place on lined cookie sheet.
  • Use a cup or glass with a flat bottom to gently flatten the dough balls until they are 2 inches in diameter.
  • Bake cookies 11-12 minutes until set. Edges will not be brown.
  • Allow cookies to cool before topping.
  • Place caramel bits and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until melted and runny.
  • Scoop a little more than a teaspoon of caramel onto each cookie. After every 6 cookies, stop and use a butter knife or offset spatula to spread caramel near the edges fo the cookie.
  • Melt the milk chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring well between each interval. Stir in the vegetable oil or shortening.
  • Scoop a generous teaspoon of chocolate onto each cookie, and spread using a knife or offset spatula.
  • Allow cookies to cool before serving. You can put them in the fridge to cool; however if you leave them in the fridge too long the chocolate may get streaky or spotty.
