Caramello Cookies!

So, again, long time no post. Please forgive me. I did happen to get in the kitchen recently and this was what I made. These are actually really called Gooey Caramel Chocolate Bars, but I liked my name for them better. This recipe came from the KitchenAid cookbook. I saw the cover that had a small picture of these cookies and from that alone told my husband I wanted it for my birthday. Being the smart man that he is he got it for me and so I now can share this recipe with you. The rest of the book looks awesome by the way. I don't know about you all, but caramel and chocolate have a special place in my heart, so this cookie was made for me. Plus it is simple. Give it a try and I promise I will post again soon!!
These are mine, go make your own!!!

Mmmmmm caramely goodness. The caramel is just the right consistency, soft, but it doesn't stick to your fingers!
Caramello Cookies!!
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
4 sticks Butter divided
1 Cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 Cup light corn syrup
1 Cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press tinfoil into a 9x13 pan. This done not need to be sprayed with pam because the base is a butter cookie. Combine flour, sugar, salt and 1 and 3/4 of a stick (all but 2 TBS) butter. Combine with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Press into the prepared pan and bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool completely. Now you can make your caramel. Combine 2 sticks butter with brown sugar and corn syrup in a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil over a medium heat stirring constantly. Once boiling let it boil for 2 minutes without stirring. (If the boiling sugar is climbing the pot and getting too high turn it down a bit.) Remove and pour over cooled cookie base and allow to cool fully again. Finally melt your chocolate chips and add the last to TBS butter and spread over the top of the caramel. I left out the butter. You can choose. Then you can lift the entire pan out by the foil and cut and devour!! These would be great for a summer picnic. Enjoy!!
