Can you believe Christmas is TWO WEEKS away?! In true procrastinator fashion, I still have a good chunk of Christmas shopping to do and lots of cookies I still want to bake.

Every year I have my list of treats that I make every year, like my favorite sugar cookies and peppermint shortbread, but I also try to save some time for new things to try. This year I’m still planning to make some fudge, which I’ve never made before, caramels, which I’ve tried and failed at making, and thumbprint cookies.

A new one I already tried and absolutely loved this year are these brown butter chocolate caramel pecan cookies. The combination of chocolate, caramel, and pecans is definitely tried and true, and I went ahead and amped them up with some brown butter. Because why not? It’s Christmas!

With the help of Nestle Tollhouses’s Delightfull Filled Baking Morsels, I didn’t have to add chocolate chips AND pieces of caramel. Unlike regular chocolate chips, these new baking chips are actually filled with caramel. Genius, right?! They also have a mint filled version that I can attest are incredible tossed in a pan of brownies.

The cookies turned out just how I like my cookies – crispy on the outside and perfectly chewy in the middle. These would be a great addition to any holiday cookie tray. It could also be a nice little treat for your neighbors or coworkers!

The same NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® chocolate you know and love now filled with rich caramel, peanut butter, mint, and cherry flavored filling. Add these new filled baking morsels to your favorite recipes for a special twist on the classic. Alternatively, try experimenting with them in a recipe you’ve never tried before!
