Salted Caramel Sugar Cookie Cups

Needed some treats for a couple of events so tinkered around in the kitchen and came up with these which are easy and delicious.

1 pouch sugar cookie mix plus ingredients called for on package

1 bag caramels, unwrapped

1/3 – 1/2 cup evaporated milk

chocolate candy melts for drizzling

sea salt for sprinkling

1  Preheat oven to 325 for dark pans, 350 for regular pans.  Spray wells of mini muffin pans with cooking spray for baking (the kind with flour).

2  Prepare cookie mix according to package directions.  Roll dough into 1 tablespoon size balls or use a mini scoop and place balls/scoops in pan.

3  Bake for 10 minutes or just until edges are starting to brown.  Remove from oven and immediately press down centers of cookies with mini tart shaper or back of a spoon.  Let sit in pan 10 – 15 minutes before removing.

4  Melt caramels and evaporated milk over medium heat until smooth.  Scoop or spoon mixture into center of each cookie cup.  Allow to cool.

5  Melt a handful of candy melts in the microwave according to package directions until smooth.  Spoon melted candy melts into a ziploc bag, snip off corner and drizzle over caramel filled cups then sprinkle with sea salt.
