Rarely do pins with unique ingredients or unconventional methods of baking actually become more than a failed noble attempt to make a sweet treat.
This cookie was the best exception to that norm I’ve ever encountered.
A conglomerate of chewy caramel and rich Nutella goodness swirls around in the brownie-like crust that holds it together.
Essentially, it’s every good thing about a variety of desserts all in one spot. Every sweet treat fantasy is fulfilled within the confines of this gooey piece of art.
I was skeptical about the amount of salt it calls for, and in the past, I’ve run into some nasty treats that followed the salted caramel frenzy. However, it’s the salt in fact that really sends it to a higher level.
Beware, it’s a sticky-sweet mess; a glass of ice-cold milk evens it out nicely. I’m still having dreams about this mother of a confection.

What went right
What didn’t go right with this recipe? It had significant potential to turn out like the other pins I’ve busted: piles of burned mush and broken dreams.
The recipe is explicit and, unlike the other treats I’ve tried, they turn out almost exactly as the originally pinned photo. In fact, they were slightly too gorgeous to touch.
Decadent out of the oven and wonderful a few days later, these cookies left nothing to be desired and definitely hit the spot.
What I would change
The suggested amount to dollop on the cookie sheet is about a spoonful’s worth. Unless a giant cookie is the wanted outcome, I’d go smaller than that—much smaller. They’re rich and chocolatey already, and it’s difficult to finish a whole cookie in one sitting.
I absolutely recommend this recipe. For the most part, it’s simple to make, but the results are worth the trouble. I’ve been reeling over them since and currently looking for an excuse to make them again.
