Who Wins – Caramel Chip Cookies

To all my Readers in Australia, HAPPY LONG WEEKEND :) Woo Hoo! We get tomorrow off because it’s Queen’s Birthday, it’s a little annoying though that we don’t get an extra day off like my friends in the UK do because it’s the Queen’s Jubilee celebration :D

Even though, I’ve only gone to the UK, I’ve always had a strong connection with the Queen hehe I’ve always liked her and the whole royal family ~ I was quite young when Princess Diane passed away but I still remember it was such a shock and have since read so many autobiographies of her :)

They’re both invincible and incredible together :)

I’m totally in love with this picture and just really wanted to share with everyone, Queen Elizabeth and her Prince Phillip are surely invincible and incredible together after so many years, they are still very much in love! Sooooo Sweet :)

Anyway,  I always get side-tracked lol like most couples… Mr Bao and I bicker a lot… and we always have stupid bets and challenges…and these caramel chip cookies are one of them.

Nestle recently released their new caramel bits for baking, which are the same as the chocolate chips but their caramel ones YAY :) I LOVE anything caramel hehe ~ so I immediately picked them up. I got quite busy so just left them lying at the back of my pantry, but then fellow blogger The Suz Chef Instagrammed a photo of these chips and jolted my memory.

So I made these last night, and while I was scooping them out onto the baking trays, Mr Bao decided my cookies were ‘ugly’ and that I should be using my hands and rolling them into little BALLS before I bake them… so he decided to come and ‘show’ me…

*Rolls Eyes*

*COUGH COUGH* Excuse me! Who’s the baker in the house? LOL

Anyway so we got into a pretty heated argument and we can’t decide who’s cookies look better?!? They taste exactly the same, but I must say mine are crunchier on the outside and oh so chewy on the inside.

So my dear lovely Readers, please vote who’s Caramel Chip Cookies look the best :D Just be honest and place a vote ~ I wont be made if you only voted for me hahaha.

If I win I wont need to do the washing for the next two weeks! But if I lose…I’ll have to do the washing and ironing…so PLEASE cast your vote :)

Mine – The Left
Mr Bao – The Right

Back to the recipe, these Caramel Chip Cookies were SO easy to make and SO good :) I think I’m gonna make another batch for work next week ~ They’re seriously sweet and delicious and very ‘Mrs Field’ like which is the type of cookies I like hehe ~


Recipe – Caramel Chip Cookies from Nestle (the package) 

Ingredients (Makes 15 large or 30 small) 
125 grams butter, soften
165 grams, brown sugar
1 egg
255grams, self raising flour
250 grams, Nestle Caramel Bits

Method
1) Preheat oven to 170°C/150°C fan-forced. Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2) Place, butter, brown sugar and egg in a bowl of a stand mixer or use a handheld electric mixer, beat until mixture is plate and creamy.

3) Stir in flour.

4) Add Caramel Bits. Mix until well combined

5) Roll level tablespoon of mixture, place on prepared trays of about 4cm apart. Flatten slightly.

6) Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden. Set aside on trays for 5 minutes to cool; transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.

If you haven’t seen these Caramel Bits, you can get them from most Coles and Woolworths in Australia :) As for other places I’m not too sure ~ But if you do see them, pick some up and try making these yummy cookies!

Before I head off ~ Please please PLEASE cast your vote!

Thanks xoxo

PS. I’m the one on the LEFT :D

    sorry mr bao but daisy wins ! the chips looks more even out :P

  2. Winnie@Eat.Play.Shop. June 11, 2012 at 12:06 am Reply

    Yours definitely win Daisy! But like I said on instagram, chewy bikkies always beat crunchy any day! Sorry Mr Bao!

    I’ve always been a fan of the royals too! Although probably because I have strange liking for the history of the British Monarchy from the time of the Battle of Hastings rather than the more current royal family :) That photo is very very sweet!

    PS – I love your pink kitchenaid!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 1:42 pm Reply

      Thanks Winnie :) Same here I much prefer chewy cookies hehe ~ I’ll let Mr Bao know about the score hehe

      I love their history too~ I’ve always read so many books and things about them ~ Queen Elizabeth the First is AMAZING :D

      Sighhh that’s not a Kitchenaid hehe I wish it was! It’s a Kenwood I’m saving up for a pink Kitchenaid ;)

    Haha, you’re such a cute couple. I like the look of the ones on the rectangular tray, whoever made them!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 1:44 pm Reply

      Hi Leaf :) hahaha we’re not so cute right now we’re more competitive :P Thanks for your vote I MADE THEM on the tray hehe

    Hahhaha…. You guys are too cute. What a fun way to spend time together. And I’m sorry, Daisy, but I gotta say that Mr Bao’s does look better. I may or may not be a TAD biased but us guys gotta have each other’s backs, y’know! LOL. I’m kidding, they both look just as delicious and make me just as hungry at this hour =X

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm Reply

      Hi Winston :) hahhaa we’re really not that cute we just fight and argue with each other all the time hehe! Damn Winston I thought I could depend on your vote hahaha but it’s okay I think Mr Bao deserves a vote too hehe

      I’ll say ‘Thanks’ on his behalf :D Hope exams went well for you!

  6. Gerald Englebretsen June 11, 2012 at 12:26 am Reply

    I will not cause division in the house on a long weekend. Anything that is NOT burnt is fine by me – so they both look delicious.

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 1:50 pm Reply

      Hahahha you’re too nice Gerald :) but it’s ok thanks for leaving a comment anyways ~

  7. Cupcake Crazy Gem June 11, 2012 at 12:44 am Reply

    Haha I like your deals for the bet! and I have to say that I do prefer the look of yours Daisy. Although I applaud Mr Bao’s intentions of wanting to make the cookies more uniform and ‘neater’, I actually like the way you can see the cracks in yours – they look like a more rustic authentic cookie and one that I would definitely want to eat!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 10:40 pm Reply

      Hello Gem :) We always have these silly bets and usually we’re able to work them out without having to take it onto the blog but this time lol we needed some judges to help us out hehe~

      Thank you for your vote wakakaka I told him mine look more homemade hehe :P he’s are too ‘commercial’ hehe

    DEFINITELY the left hand side wins!! Wahahahahahahahahaha

  12. bakingaddict June 11, 2012 at 3:21 am Reply

    I love that picture of the Royals. You and Mr Bao seem like a cute couple too and perhaps one day you can have a similar picture to share :) If I have to vote, I’ll vote for your cookies as they look just that little bit better to me but well done to Mr Bao for coming in a close second :) The cookies sounds delicious – I’m not sure if I can find caramel chips here.

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 10:48 pm Reply

      hahaha i doubt that we’ll take such a pretty and serene picture lol we’re always fighting with each other hehe :P thank you Ros for the vote hehe I totally think mine look more ‘homemade’ :)

      I’m sure you’d be able to find them over there ~ you guys have more cool stuff than us hehe

  13. Choc Chip Uru June 11, 2012 at 7:43 am Reply

    Mmmm Daisy I am all for your stunning cookie! It looks bigger than Mr B’s ;)
    And I did not know caramel chips were finally available in Australia – today’s grocery mission? Buy caramel chips – thanks for the tip :D

    Cheers

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 10:53 pm Reply

      Thanks Uru :D yay another vote~ Yes yes do go get yourself some caramel chips :) They’re the BEST hehe ~

  14. hotlyspiced June 11, 2012 at 8:11 am Reply

    Before I even knew that the cookie on the left was yours, I was going to vote for the cookie on the left. It just has better colour and it looks like it would have better crunch. I love that photo of Philip and Lizzy too. I remember Princess Diana well. You couldn’t go a day without seeing an image of her. The women’s magazines just loved her because with her on the cover they would sell, sell, sell. I think everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news her life had been taken all too soon. xx

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 11, 2012 at 10:56 pm Reply

      YAY :) Thanks Charlie ~ i’m starting to feel a little sorry for Mr Bao it’s his first attempt at making cookies hehe ~ but I honestly like mine more :P

      I remember that too! When i went to supermarkets with mum…it was always Princess Diane on the cover of all the magazines :( I still think it’s really sad how she died so young..

  15. Michelle June 11, 2012 at 10:12 am Reply

    the left one looks homemade. the right ones looks commercially prepared.

  16. Julianne June 11, 2012 at 1:10 pm Reply

    My vote goes to Daisy…looks more natural and fresh

  17. Pasta Princess June 12, 2012 at 1:56 am Reply

    I vote for your cookies Daisy. Looks like you may not have to do laundry or ironing for awhile! lol .. love it! :-)

    You two are the cutest couple, Daisy! Okay, both look much better than how I would make so I pick you two as winner! ;-) These cookies look delicious! I love your pink KA!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:40 am Reply

      Hahaha we really aren’t that CUTE lol we fight so much it’s silly but we try to have fun when we can and get out of as much house work as we can :P DAMN you didn’t pick me as the winner :P

  23. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella June 12, 2012 at 8:30 pm Reply

    Hehe you see I loved Princess Diana when I was young! These caramel bits sound really interesting. I’ve never seen them before!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:43 am Reply

      They’re really nice :) You should get them too Lorraine ~ I love Princess Diana too hehe oh you didn’t vote :P

    just send the 2 batches over for me to taste test first!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:45 am Reply

      hahaha that sounds like a brilliant idea :) but for me to do that I’m gonna have to bake another batch first :P

  26. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake June 12, 2012 at 10:08 pm Reply

    I LOVE that photo of the queen XD It’s so cute…

    I must say, I definitely prefer your version better Daisy, sorry Mr Bao! Cookies are meant to have this rustic jagged edges and a chewy centre sounds just perfect! I’m craving for some right now, not good, don’t have any chocolate chips at home. :(

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:51 am Reply

      Hi Jenny :) me too love love love that photo that’s why i wanted to share with everyone ~

      WOO HOO :) Another vote! Totally leading this competition lol poor Mr Bao he tried his best hehe! Uh oh you should go get some caramel/chocolate chips soon!

  27. libishski June 12, 2012 at 10:27 pm Reply

    I love that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip photo too!

    Haha I didn’t know that the UK gets an extra day off work. It sucks that we don’t get it too, but I made up for it by taking my monthly RDO on the Friday so that I could have an extra long weekend … which was, of course, not long enough! Wah!

    And haha, you’re too right about bickering couples. Most of the time, I want to punch Marty in the face!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:55 am Reply

      I know right Libby! It’s not fair that we only got one day off sighhh but doesn’t matter ~ at least you got an extra long weekend hehe i wish i took an extra day off too :P

      LOL we bicker so much it’s really not funny but then i don’t think i could be with a guy that was just so timid and ‘nice’ all the time LOL

  28. kellysiew June 12, 2012 at 11:09 pm Reply

    I really do prefer yours for a more rustic look. And it also has slightly more colour due to the nooks and crooks. So yeah! I want cookies too!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 13, 2012 at 8:56 am Reply

      WOO HOO I am CLEARLY the winner :) Go me! And i think because there’s more crooks and stuff in it, the edge are crunchier :D go make some Kelly!!!

  29. sugarpuffi June 13, 2012 at 3:44 pm Reply

    the picture looks so sweet and OMG i cant believe u have a baby pink mixer!! so jelly!!

  31. Rice Bowl Tales June 13, 2012 at 8:22 pm Reply

    Looks like you won’t need to do any washing and ironing for two weeks haha!! Your cookies definitely won by a long mile!! What makes Mr Bao think that he could do better baking then you LOL, though I normally consider him very sweet, I have to take your side this time :)
    I love both the Queen and Prince Phillip, feel very touched when people who don’t live in this country think highly of them too :)

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 15, 2012 at 11:29 am Reply

      Woo Hoo :) I am so so so happy that I don’t need to do the washing or ironing! YAY! I hate housework with a passion hahaha so it’s good that I don’t need to do it :P

      LOL i kinda feel sorry for him cuz it’s his first time making cookies and he tried really hard but somehow it just didn’t work out hehe

      I totally love the Queen and the whole royal family :) I’m not sure why I have such a strong connection but somehow I do ~

  33. 'tanya October 21, 2012 at 11:41 pm Reply

    Hi! I just found the caramel bits too! So I quickly whipped up a batch ( double size, of course, for my growing twin girls are eating me out of everything) and added 1 pkt caramel bits and 3/4 pkt milk choc bits and they are delicious. Oh, and mine turned out just like yours so I vote for the ones on the left!

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet October 22, 2012 at 11:35 pm Reply

      Hi Tanya :)

      Thanks for dropping by my blog :) I’m totally addicted to these caramel bits too :) They’re so delicious hehe ~ ohhh you have twin girls? That’s so cute!!!
