At first, I really didn’t think it could get much better than the original gooey butter cookie. Then, we made the strawberry shortcake gooey butter cookies. I believe I ate 15 of those bad boys in about 3 minutes that day. I swore it was the best cookie I ever had.

But now… although those are still amazingly delicious… I bring you the ultimate gooey butter cookie: Chocolate Caramel Gooey Butter Cookies. Chocolate and caramel together are a way to my dessert loving heart. Remember the chocolate peanut butter salted caramel toffee cake? My chocolate + caramel love affair was on high alert that day.

O-M-G!! This sounds crazy-good! Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Salted Caramel Cake

Ingredients

With only a few ingredients (and ingredients that you more than likely have on hand), these cookies can be made in a jiffy and last-minute!

I’m getting hooked on trying this recipe by switching out the cake mix flavor. “Fun fetti” gooey butter cookies and “strawberries and cream” gooey butter cookies are next on my radar!

Caramel Drizzle Tidbit

Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle on the caramel sauce. (We used ice cream topping to keep things super simple. This didn’t harden, so if you’re looking for something to harden more, melting caramel candies may work better for you!)

After cooled, drizzle more caramel on to the gooey butter cookies
