I was craving something sweet today. But I was lacking inspiration. I didn’t feel like eating cake, or baking cookies, or sifting through my old recipes.
I wanted something kinda chewy. And this time of year, caramel is on my mind. The cooler weather, thoughts of Halloween and pumpkins…it’s like caramel is running through my veins. Is that possible? Even if it’s not, I needed some homemade caramel running through my veins.
And then this idea popped into my head: Coconut Caramel Chewies!
I decided to whip up some of my homemade caramel, stir in some coconut flakes, and then drizzle with melted chocolate. The result is like an over-the-top girl scout Samoa cookie, but without all the added junk!
