Toffee Studded Salted Caramel Cookie Cups

I finally gave in and started watching Breaking Bad. I am not one of those people who is always tuning into prime time television. Most of the time, I end up forgetting half of those shows are even on TV. I heard sooooo much about Breaking Bad, so I decided once it came to an end, I would start watching it on Netflix.  Let me tell you, this show is addicting! I heard that from everyone, so I was forewarned. I still was shocked how addicting it was. I’ve gotten through five seasons in a month and a half. I probably would have gone faster if I didn’t have to wait for the BluRays to come in the mail.

It is a crazy show. The writers did a really good job keeping the plot flowing and staying true to its roots. I hate it when shows lose sight of what made them so good in the beginning. If you have any free time, I recommend giving this show a view. Chances are, you won’t be able to stop. It may alter your way of thinking (paranoid much?!). You’ve been warned 😉

Speaking of addiction, another thing I can’t seem to shake is salted caramel. I seriously cannot get enough of it. I will literally try any “salted caramel” thing I can get my hands on! I was recently in William Sonoma, and I stumbled upon some Salted Caramel icing. Since I am an icing fanatic, I knew I had to try it. This stuff is really sweet! If you are not a fan of sweet icing, beware. I decided to pair it with some toffee cookie cups. Be careful these are super addictive, just like Breaking Bad!

 Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, and spray a mini muffin pan,

with non-stick cooking spray.

Cream together: butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl, combine: corn syrup, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat into dough mixture

In a medium sized bowl stir together: flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Gradually add to dough.

Stir in toffee bits

Roll into tablespoon-sized balls, and bake for 11-13 minutes

Allow them to cool in pan for five minutes, before moving to a cooling rack.

Add butter to frosting (if desired) and put in a piping bag. Pipe onto each cookie cup.
