Molten Caramel Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Author Chelsea


  • 1 and 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 and 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Rolos 2 per cookie
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Melt the butter and combine along with the vanilla extract.
  4. Stir everything together until a thick dough forms. You may need to knead the mixture with your hands.
  5. Place the dough in the fridge while you unwrap the caramel-filled chocolate candies.
  6. Flatten the dough in your hand and press two caramel-filled chocolates into the center of the cookie. Press the edges up around the candies and completely seal into a large cookie. Make sure none of the caramel-filled chocolates are exposed or it will leak out during baking.
  7. Bake for 9-12 minutes. Slightly underbaking these is the BEST! It lends a softer cookie with melted and gooey caramel. Overbaking these makes the caramel harden when cooled.
  8. I pulled out the cookies generally at 9 minutes, allowed them to sit on the cookie sheet for another 2-3 minutes, and then transferred to a cooling rack to allow them to harden up a bit.
  9. To top with chocolate, combine the chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir for 15 seconds, and then microwave for bursts of 15 seconds until completely melted.
  10. Take a spoon and dip it in the melted chocolate. Run the spoon from left to right over the cookies to get the chocolate drizzle.
