Caramel Apple Brownie Cookies

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

Every now and again I like making a recipe that utilizes brownie mix. I  obviously could make brownies myself, but this is a nice small package so, it has a smaller batch, which is great for busy smaller families or families which just like to have a batch made up very fresh rather than sitting around getting stale.

I  also thought I would use a pack of the caramel apple candies as it seemed really interesting to me. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go the Brookies route with them or make cookies. But the flavors simply remind me of going to the local apple orchards where they make their MONSTER type caramel apples, which are huge and covered with caramel and chocolate together. This thought condensed into a cookie. The oats I added for just an extra old-fashioned touch.

I really hope you like these! (Let me know in the comments!) And don’t forget to sign up for the giveaway. Someone is going to win it. It might as well be you, right? See you again soon!
