I make a batch of chocolate chip cookies pretty much every week but this time, I did something CRAZY and stuffed them with cashews and caramel.

These were truly the most incredibly OOEY GOOEY cookies I have ever made!

At first, I was going to use only caramel but my dear Mom got me a big bag of cashews on her last visit.

I couldn’t resist stuffing those inside these cookies too (I ADORE cashews!)

Honest to goodness, these cashew caramel chocolate chip cookies were HUGE!

They ended up being slightly BIGGER than the palm of my hands, just like bakery cookies!

I don’t even think it’s possible to make small cookies when you are stuffing them 😛

I personally enjoy munching on these cashew caramel chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven with a big glass of milk!

They are so SOFT and warm and all the flavors intermingle in perfect harmony.

Just look at a closeup of that caramel cashew stuffing…Makes you DROOL. Doesn’t it?! hehe.

To give these cookies a supplemental boost, I added Vital Proteins collagen peptides.

I LOOOOOVEEEE this product…It’s odorless and colorless and won’t change the flavor of your recipes.

I have been using it about 4 months now in baking and smoothies and salads and I am starting to notice a difference in my nails and my hair => Everything is getting STRONGER and HEALTHIER!

I have also used collagen peptides in these fudgy eggless brownies and this raspberry mousse and even these pistachio carrot cupcakes.

Cookies:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 tbsp Vital Proteins collagen peptides
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

Filling:
1/3 cup chopped cashews
10-12 caramel candies

Notes:
– This recipe will yield about 10-12 big cookies. They will be about the size of the palm of your hands.
– You can easily double the recipe.
– You can add more chocolate chips in the batter, if you like.
– When the cookies are fresh out of the oven, I push a few chocolate chips on top of each cookie before they have a chance to cool down. It just makes them look prettier and one can never have enough chocolate…lol.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.

Step 2:
Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.

Step 3:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and collagen peptides.

Step 4:
Dump the dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined.

Step 5:
Stir in the chocolate chips.

Step 6:
Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes so that the dough is easier to handle.

Step 7:
Scoop out a small portion of the cookie dough and roll it into a ball and then flatten it on the palm of your hands.
Place a small caramel candy and some cashews in the center.
Then, roll the dough into a ball and place it on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper.

Tip: 
While doing this step, I like to wear disposable plastic gloves since it prevents the dough from getting warm and sticking to my hands.

Step 8:
Place this tray in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Do not skip this step or else your cookies will spread while baking.

Step 9:
Then, remove the trays from the freezer and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown with firm edges.

Step 10:
Let these cookies cool down to room temperature before digging in!

And you are done!
