Chocolate Chunk Caramelized Cookies That Won’t Fail to Impress

If you love cookies and deep, nutty, caramelized flavors, then this recipe is surely for you. They’re easy to make and egg-free, so they’re suitable for a vegan diet, as long as you steer clear of milk chocolate as well. Baked in a muffin tin, each cookie will get caramelized, crispy edges that only enhance the flavor!

The Needed Ingredients

For 24 delicious cookies, you will require:

  • 1 cup or 2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature and cut into pieces (have additional butter for the pans)
  • Half a cup of powdered sugar
  • Half a cup of granulated sugar
  • Half a teaspoon of salt
  • Two and one-quarter cups of all-purpose flour
  • A teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Half a cup of chopped walnuts
  • Three ounces of your preferred type of chocolate – chopped

Preparing the Cookies

Beat the butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, and salt in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium. When you get a creamy consistency, beat in the vanilla and start mixing in the flour. Don’t overbeat the dough as it should be more clumpy than smooth. Beat in the walnuts and chocolate just enough to incorporate.

Pour out the dough onto the countertop and knead gently to form two six-inch long logs about two inches in diameter. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for at least two hours.

Getting That Caramelized Flavor

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter two 12-cup muffin pans. Unwrap the logs and cut them into rounds at half-inch intervals. Place the rounds in the muffin cups and bake the cookies for 20-25 minutes, rotating the pans from top to bottom halfway through. Let the cookies cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing them. When cooked, each cookie should be golden in color and with lightly browned, caramelized edges. They store up to 7 days airtight at room temperature, so enjoy them with a cup of milk!

Signs of Cheating

Do you want to know how to understand if your lover is being unfaithful? Dr. Becky Spelman, a psychologist & specialist discussed some of the most prevalent indicators of cheating and the reasons for them.

#1. Technology Changes

Top 3 Cheating Signs People in a Relationship Should Know

Technology has made communication simpler, which not only makes it easier to have an affair but also means there are more opportunities to be caught. You may find out that your spouse has an email account you were unaware of, or that he has two phone numbers and you only know one. Another obvious clue is when he begins accepting phone calls and walks out of the room, frequently claiming it’s for work, and then becoming defensive when you approach his phone.

What he might tell you: His supervisor has asked him to be on call when he’s at home, so he’s been given a work phone, and your boyfriend doesn’t want to disturb whatever you’re doing. Perhaps he’s planned something really special for you that he doesn’t want you to know about.

The real reason: His mistress is sending him texts or emails when you’re at home, and he’s attempting to conceal it. If you’re tempted to go through his phone, think twice. Are your suspicions worth breaching his trust?

#2. A New Man

His behavior: Has your partner started to watch new TV shows, listen to new music, or even buy new clothes or aftershave?

The innocent explanation: He could simply be updating his appearance and trying new things, or he could have discovered a new website or magazine that is providing him with new suggestions.

The guilty reason: A new lady often implies that he is exposed to new things (other than cheating) that you are not aware of.

His behavior: When you’re in the depths of desire, your partner suddenly starts doing something new and beautiful. It could be a brand-new foreplay technique or position you’ve never heard of before.

The innocent explanation: He could have been browsing for advice and decided to try it out. Don’t be so harsh on him for attempting!

The guilty reason: It’s one of the more uncommon symptoms he’s cheating, but if it happens more than once and out of nowhere, it could be because someone in another bed is teaching him something new!
