Caramel Heath Cookies

I made these last year for my sis in laws baby shower and now that Fall is almost upon us, I wanted to share them with you guys today. They are simple and so very good. You really cannot go wrong. Let's be serious, they have heath and caramel. oh, and butter and cream cheese. In other words...yums for your tums.

    1 8 oz brick cream cheese, room temperature
    1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (18-ounce) box caramel cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cup heath bits
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Pre heat oven to 350'

DIRECTIONS-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then finally add in the cake mix & slowly add in the heath bits . Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner's sugar.

 Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 10 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and "gooey." Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners' sugar, if desired. 

These fit in perfectly with the Fall theme from the shower and here was just some of the decor. If you are planning to host any fall party, you can't go wrong with these simple looks. and the baby touches could easily be swapped out.
