Hi. It’s me, Lily.

Half of my family is here to visit me and I’m having so much fun with them. I’m so happy because I love having fun with my family. Today, we went to the beach and we built sand castles and we searched for seashells and we had a picnic and ate snacks. I was also jumping over the waves. I tried to build something in the castle and my mommy made a volcano, and my cousin, Hannah, built a castle too. My aunt Tara built sand castles for us, and it was so much fun!

Hannah and Tara were watching me when I was baking this dessert. And it was so much fun.

We mixed everything up and we put the caramel bits in last.

We rolled them into balls and put in a bowl of powdered sugar. Then we patted them down a little on the cookie sheet, and then put them in the oven.

Oh now don’t those look great. I love that you bake with your kids. They will forever remember those special times together.

Where are the full directions to print? Do you follow the directions on the cake mix box? All this has me a lot confused! Oven temp? Time? Decorations on top of cookie? Are we missing anything, or is it just me? Thanks.

    Lil' Luna

    So sorry about that. We posted this during a storm and our electricity went out right before (turning off our Wi-fi) so it hadn’t saved the recipe card. Updated it now. 🙂

WOW I love the caramel peaking out of those cookies! You are so lucky to live be the ocean. We just have a lot of lakes here in Minnesota!

Linda Nguyen

Oh no, I got the cookie mix one! I was about to grab the cake one, but I saw the cookie one instead. You think I can do the same thing with the cookie mix?

    Lil' Luna

    I think you could still add the caramel bits to it with the frosting, but don’t think they’ll be as soft and gooey as the cake mix with the cream cheese. Not sure though so let me know how hey turn out. I’m sure they will still be yummy!!

      Linda Nguyen

      The cookies are still soft and yummy! They’re way softer than some other cookies I’ve made. I just didn’t add the frosting b/c I figured it’d be too sweet for me, but I did include the caramel bits. These cookies are the bomb! I love your blog and trust in your judgment regarding to taste. I’ve made lots of your recipes. Thanks for sharing!!

        Lil' Luna

        YAY!! So glad they turned out well. I’m so happy to hear that you love the blog. It’s people like you who keep me creating, and I really appreciate you coming to check it all out. XO

Where do you get the caramel bits?

Yuuuumz we made the caramel apple cookies yesterday and they were amazing. The kids and all their friends were going wild for them!!! And added these amazing smokes coconut bits on top. Wowsers Im drooling just remembering. I can’t wait to try this version though as well. The cream cheese folded in sounds positively decadent.

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! Coconut bits sounds yum! I’ll have to try that! Thank you 🙂
