Thomas and I are heading to Germany in a week! It will be his first time to Europe and I’m pumped to bring him back to my kinda-sorta home! We spent a decent amount of time in Germany growing up because that’s where my family is from. We’ll be running around Southern Germany for 10 days but before we get there we have a loooooooong flight. In order to make it through without losing our minds, I’ll be bringing Double Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookies. It’s a take on my favorite trail mix which combines almonds, chocolate and little chocolate covered caramels – but I’ve turned them into cookies because it’s the right thing to do! Made with chocolate chips, chopped up caramels and Oven Roasted Sea Salt Blue Diamond Almonds and then dusted with Maldon sea salt for an extra punch of flavor – these really can’t be beat!

  1. oh %$#*!!! these look sooo good Gaby. Have a great flight- I can’t wait to follow your exploits on instagram!

  2. Have so much fun in Germany!!! Jason is half German and he really wants to go 🙂 can’t wait to see your snaps and instas! These cookies will make the flight less painful!

  3. This sort of makes me want to fly cross country just so I can make these! But instead I will just stay home and make them! Love the almond addition!!

  4. What a honor to have you here in Germany! Enjoy your stay and if Munich is on your list make a stop at Cafe Frischhut. There you can buy traditional bavarian sweets (my favorite is “Zwetschgennudel” – only my Mom does it better). Maybe you’ll find some inspiration for new recipes 😉
    Greetings from Munich!

  5. Have fun in Germany! I was there signing on tour with a punk band a few years ago so my memories weren’t exactly…clear….and I never ate a single sausage b/c everyone was vegan. So eat some bratwurst for me! PS Your wire rack is an amazing shape.

  6. 5 stars
    These are our number two favorite cookies! Number one are the kitchen sink cookies! But back to these babies, you don’t see very many cookies with almonds in them. These are soft and the crunch of the almonds are a great balance, and we love the caramel in them too! Overall a really good go to chocolate dough cookie. We made a few batches of them for our wedding favors, froze them and once thawed were just as good as day one!

    1. I’ve been using the Salted Caramel Butterscotch balls from Trader Joes!! But really any soft caramel small bite sized treat is perfect!!
