Lancaster Caramel and Chocolate Cookies

Cookies and Milks

I love Lancaster caramels - they are so, so yummy. And we have a lot of them. I kind of fell in love with them because they were called Lancaster and came out when we were living in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which is where Milton Hershey actually started. It's fun to think they are reintroducing his recipe from a failed caramel company out in farm country Pennsylvania now in 2014, but hey, they are pretty darn yummy. Because they are so soft too, I thought they would make the perfect cookie companion. And they did!

  5. Ok, I'm pretty much drooling over these right now. Chocolate and caramel are my favorite, and I am such a sucker for cookies and milk at night. I like how you specified to make the cookie scoops smaller - I always seem to make them far too big :)
