Hello. My name is Sarah and I'm an addict. I, like every other food/fashion/DYI blogger out there, am OBSESSED with Pinterest. This site is seriously the bee's knees.I have boards for recipes I want to try and DYI projects I'd love to attempt and photography tips and quotes I love and the list goes on. However, I spend all this time adding to my boards that I rarely actually DO any of them.
This molten caramel chocolate lava cake was one of the very first things I pinned. I was so excited to make it. Who wouldn't love warm, ooey-gooey caramel and chocolate? So what happened? And it sat there. And sat there. And sat there, sadly forgotten about. I mean, how often does the occasion for making decadent individual cakes come into my life?
But then I became brilliant. Make it a cookie! And so I did. I made fudgy, chewy brownie cookies stuffed with a Dove caramel. And it was awesome. Pure heaven.P.S. There are caramel blow-outs in heaven. Don't worry- they're delicious.

What You'll Need:
- 1 1/4 cups AP Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
- 2 cups Sugar
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 stick Butter, melted and cooled
- 2 eggs
- 18 Dove Caramel Promises
- Preheat oven to 350F. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer until combined
- Add vanilla, butter, and eggs and mix until fully incorporated.
- On a parchment lined cookie sheet, drop 2 tsp of dough (I used a small cookie scoop- worked like a charm). Place a Dove promise in the middle of each round and then top with another 2 tsp of dough. Gently press the top dough down and around the promise.
- Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven but allow to sit on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes. Then move cookies still on the parchment off the sheet to further cool. Wait until COMPLETELY cool to remove from paper.
- Before you reuse the same cookie sheet for a 2nd batch, make sure it's completely cool too. I threw mine in the freezer for a couple minutes. If it's too hot, your dough rounds will "melt" and it will make it incredibly difficult to form the dough around the chocolate.
