Salted Caramel Brownie Cookies


6 oz. dark chocolate chips
4 Tbs. margarine
2 eggs
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 bag Nestle DelightFulls milk chocolate morsels with caramel filling (pictured below)
1 Tbs. sea salt (give or take)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a double boiler (or a glass bowl set on top/inside of a saucepan with a few inches of water), heat the water until boiling. Add the chocolate chips and margarine into the  glass bowl. As they start to melt, start slowly combining together with a spatula. When the chocolate and butter are fully melted and combined, remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

Meanwhile, in an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla together on a medium-high speed for 9-11 minutes until the mixture gets a stiff consistency. On low, add the flour and baking powder until mixed. Slowly add in the melted chocolate and the caramel filled morsels. Let sit for 5 minutes for the batter to get stiff. Spoon (or use scoop) 1 Tbs. of the batter into a parchment lined baking sheet. Make sure you leave plenty of room for the cookies to spread (I had enough room for around 8 cookies per batch). Sprinkle the tops with a small pinch of sea salt. Bake for 8 minutes in the oven. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from the parchment paper, and cool fully on a wire rack.
