Ingredients
  

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 8 pieces Werther's SOFT caramel chews
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions
 

For shortbread cookie

  • Combine butter, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla into a medium sized mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for a few minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. This mixture needs to be nice and creamy before you add the flour.
  • Slowly add the flour to this mixture, mixing on low as you add it. Only combine about 1/4 cup at a time.
  • Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for at least one hour.

For the caramel filling

  • Unwrap caramel candies and place into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds, until soft.
  • Pour in whipping cream and mix together until completely combined.
  • Spoon 1/2 tbsp. into the well of each cookie. Let cool and set.

For milk chocolate topping

  • Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Remove from microwave and stir until creamy.
  • Spoon melted chocolate into the bottom corner of a ziplock plastic bag. Snip a small piece of the corner off with scissors, and push chocolate towards snipped corner.
  • Gently squeeze bag until chocolate comes out of the corner, and carefully drizzle over each cookie.
  • Let chocolate cool and set completely.

Notes

If you aren't so much into the presentation of these cookies, you are welcome to dip each one caramel-side-down into the chocolate to coat the tops of them. The flavor is all there and it's less work!
