These are definitely a new favorite! The combination of molasses and caramel with nuts and oats tastes like my holiday dreams! I found I had to pull them before they really set so they were still chewy on the inside and a bit crisp on the outside, a bit like a macaron. If I leave them too long the caramel gets squished out when you bite it. Piping the caramel on is also highly recommended- it was a bit gooey and messy to spoon. I made them for a potluck and they might have trouble getting to their destination!

The molasses in this recipe made me think of the molasses chew in the Whitman's sampler, so I made a batch of molasses caramel to put in between instead. Then I dipped one side in 60% chocolate. The combination of crispy cookie, chewy molasses taste and smooth chocolate is awesome! Yum!

Cookies on their own have a good texture and not too sweet flavor . So then with the delicious caramel filling- makes for a yummy cookie. Difficult to get evenly shaped/sized cookies - even with a teaspoon size cookie scoop but otherwise the recipe is a keeper.
