Whenever Cadbury Caramilk hits the supermarket shelves, people go wild.
And given you can get your hands on it right now, you may as well take it up a notch and bake it into some perfect biscuits.
Loaded biscuits should definitely be a thing, so we've collaborated with baking queen Miss Trixie Drinks Tea to come up with a recipe that you need to make right now.
Caramilk, Pretzel & Pecan Cookies
- 250g unsalted butter, softened
- 135g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
- 225g (1 cup) brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 450g (2 cups) plain flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 85g (1 cup) pecans, chopped
- 65g (1 cup) broken pretzels
- 2 blocks (360g) Cadbury Caramilk, roughly chopped
- Sea salt flakes, to decorate
- 2 blocks (360g) Cadbury Caramilk (270g melted, 90g chopped into squares)
- Chocolate Malt Balls
- Wafer squares
- Pecan nuts
- Gold sprinkles
- Place butter, sugars and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on high for three minutes.
- Add eggs and beat for one minute.
- Using a wooden spoon, mix in flour and baking soda.
- Mix in pecans, pretzels and chopped Caramilk.
- Spoon balls of dough, roughly the size of a golf ball into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least three hours, or overnight, to firm (this prevents the cookies from spreading in the oven).
- Pre-heat oven to 180c.
- Line baking trays with greaseproof paper and place refrigerated dough onto the baking tray and cook for 16 minutes.
- Allow cookies to cool slightly on tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes.
- Melt 270g of Caramilk in a microwave-safe bowl on medium heat in one-minute blasts. Stir after each minute and return to the microwave until completely melted.
- Spoon 1 tablespoon of melted Caramilk onto cooled cookie and place a wafer square at the top of the cookie, followed by a Pretzel. Add one malt ball, one square of Caramilk, two pecan nuts and gold sprinkles to each cookie.
- Continue to decorate as you please until you have finished all the cookies! Be sure to get creative!
