Thank your favorite teachers with gourmet brownie gifts from Fairytale Brownies

We all remember a favorite teacher or two from our school years. The characteristics that made them our favorites are as varied as our personalities - encourager, listener, communicator, caretaker, challenger, joker. Those teachers influenced who we are today.

Bake Sally’s gourmet cookies between brownie deliveries

Sally McKenney, a writer and photographer from Baltimore, has developed quite a following for her excellent food blog Sally’s Baking Addiction. It’s a great stop for gourmet cookie and dessert recipes to fill the gap between brownie deliveries from Fairytale Brownies.

Sally’s blog recently caught the attention of NPR, which published her recipe for Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookies. Sally’s gourmet cookies are sprinkled with sea salt and stuffed with caramel. Last year, the recipe won a Nestle Toll House contest—and the accompanying $5,000 grand prize!

So, how does one go about stuffing caramel into a gourmet cookie? As Sally's told to NPR, “The trick to stuffing the caramel candy inside is to make sure the dough completely envelops it. Otherwise you'll have a leaking caramel mess on your cookie sheets!”

Yeah, we’re guessing that’s not as easy as it sounds.

If you’re in the mood for a sweet combination of chocolate and caramel but you’re not ready to follow Sally into the kitchen, it’s...
