We love handsome Gingerbread Men and glittery Sugar Cookies as much as the next person, but there’s just something about homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies that gets us every time. And apparently, we’re not alone: did you know that Americans prefer Chocolate Chip Cookies more than three to one over other cookie types?

So as we gear up for the season of serious baking, we’re always on the lookout for easy and creative ways to improve on the perennial favorite. A little twist. A better ingredient. Something to make sure our recipe still has everyone talking, year after year.

That’s why we were beyond delighted to discover new NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® DELIGHTFULLS™ filled baking morsels—the same baking morsels you love, now with inspired fillings like caramel, mint, peanut butter, and cherry flavor. Talk about a holiday baking game-changer! We hardly knew where to start. Chocolate Almond Brownies, with a cherry-flavored twist? Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes with a refreshing hint of mint? No—we would have to try DELIGHTFULLS with our all-star, our MVP, the great Chocolate Chip Cookie, first.


The ingredient du jour? DELIGHTFULLS Caramel Filled Morsels. The recipe of choice? Caramel Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies - a simple yet unforgettable treat. If you’re looking to be a standout on the cookie swap circuit this year, we strongly advise you to give this one a try!


But wait…that’s not the only gift our friends at Nestle have offered up this holiday. For those hustle and bustle-filled days when you’re more concerned about convenience than creativity, they’ve still got you covered with ta-da!—finally: NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Frozen Cookie Dough, available for the first time in the freezer aisle.

Each resealable package includes 18 cookies, ready to bake immediately from freezer to oven, with no thawing required. Keep a bag handy throughout the season as a go-to dessert for unexpected guests, or stock up on all four flavor varieties—Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip—and quickly cater to a whole crowd of tastes.


Personally, we’re looking forward to baking up just one or two whenever holiday madness demands we take a time out. Easy, perfectly portioned, and sooo yummy—that’s what we call a “smart cookie!”
