Corsage of Cookies-Salted Caramel Filled Brownie Sandwich Cookies

 Last year I wanted to try out a recipe I had received at our cookie exchange the month before.  Taylor brought a delicious brownie cookie with a salted caramel filling.  I had also seen the idea for housing cookies in a corsage box on beeinourbonnets site and I knew this was a combo made it cute heaven.ions
First, the cookies-I really liked this recipe-it was the perfect balance of salty/sweet.  If you don't like things sweet-this may not be for you b/c it's rich, but I LOVE it rich.
Brownie Cookie
Ingredients:  12 oz chocolate, chopped and divided (I just used milk chocolate chips), 3 T butter, 2 eggs, 2/3 c. sugar, 1 t. vanilla, 1/4 c. flour, 1/4 t. baking powder.
Instructions: Put 7 oz of chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and gently stir until melted and smooth (set aside, don't overcook-it heats within a few minutes at top).
Place eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and mix it for 10 minutes (until pale and creamy).  It's a long time, but I didn't dare mess with the recipe.
Add flour, baking powder, melted chocolate and remaining 5 oz of chocolate.  Mix to combine.  Place in fridge for 5-10 minutes (it needs to harden a little so it won't spread too thing while baking).
Spoon tablespoon of batter on parchment or silpat lined pan.  Bake for 10 minutes at 350.  Allow to cool completely.
 Salted Caramel Filling:
1 c. butter (room temp), 2 c. powdered sugar, 1/4 t. salt, 1/4 c. caramel (I added a little more-you can use caramel sauce, but I made my own by boiling a (closed) can of condensed milk in a pan of water for 3 hours).  Stir together until blended.
 I put the caramel into a bag and snipped the end, then added some to the the bottom of a cookie and added a lid.
 I bought these corsage boxes for 50 cents each along with some baking cups.
 I added four to each little box.
 Tied on ribbon and hearts and tags.
 Oh my.
 Definitely going to use this storage idea again.  Heart it!
