Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Caramel Pecan Shortbread

Are you prepared to meet your new favorite Christmas cookie?
Well, I suggest you get ready. This melt-in-your-mouth amazingness is about to blow you away.
I wouldn't lie about something like that. It takes about 2 seconds to whip up, 12 minutes to bake, and then you can eat until you explode. 
For realz.
Ready in under half an hour (Okay, a bit longer if you don't have giant cookie sheets but still.....)
I don't think I will ever run out of recipes to make using the Hershey's Canada Chipits that we received as part of a blogger promotion through Hershey's Canada. (Yes, we were compensated for participating but, as always, our opinions remain our own!!). 
We used the Chipits Skor Toffee Bits and the Chipits Dark Chocolate Chips to create this madness.
Want to win your own Chipits?
That was a rhetorical question. Of course you do.

Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip Caramel Pecan Shortbread

2 cups butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 cups flour
1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 cup Chipits Skor Toffee Bits
1/2 cup Chipits Dark Chocolate Chips
9 dozen pecan halves

Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Beat in the condensed milk, flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Stir in the Skor and chocolate chips.

Using a small cookie scoop (about 1 Tbsp), scoop batter onto prepared cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart. Press one pecan half onto the top of each cookie, flattening the cookie just a little.

Bake at 350 for 8 - 12 minutes, until bottoms are golden brown and edges are tinged with brown.

Let cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

I love this recipe for a holiday cookie exchange as it makes 9 dozen (using the small cookie scoop).
It looks pretty on a cookie tray too.
Oh, yeah, and it tastes AMAZEBALLS.
Seriously my new favorite cookie this year. I mean, chocolate, caramel, pecans, shortbread - what's not to love?

  1. I am a sweetened condensed milk hoarder and only use it in really special recipes like Millionaire's Shortbread, but I looked in my cupboard yesterday and I have 4 cans. Time to use some up. The addition of Skor bits in these sounds so yummy.

  2. Oh, my goodness, I love shortbread and I love sweetened condensed milk, so this is a MUST make for me! Thank you for sharing this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned!! :)
