Fancy whipping up a batch of the tastiest cookies ever? Why not channel your inner Mary Berry and bake these tasty Butlers Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Cookies.

Drooling already? Us too.

These decadent, delicious cookies are stuffed with pieces of caramel, which, when baked, create the luxurious experience of double chocolate cookies with a chewy caramel centre. Definitely cookies for grown-ups! The recipe below makes 18 cookies.


115g unsalted butter

350g soft light brown sugar

2 large eggs

55g cocoa powder, sifted

¼ tsp sea salt flakes

¾ tsp baking powder

260g plain flour

100g Butlers 40% Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Bar, roughly chopped

100g bag of Butlers Dark Chocolate Salt Caramels, roughly chopped

Sea salt flakes, for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C Fan/350°F/Gas Mark 4) and line 3 large baking trays with parchment paper.

Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and eggs. Add the cocoa powder, salt and baking powder, then stir well to combine.

Add the flour and stir until no white floury patches are left. Mix in the chopped pieces of chocolate.

Use a small 2 tbsp ice-cream scoop to portion the dough. Then make a small hollow in the centre of each scoop of dough and fill with pieces of the salt caramels. Cover the caramel with dough to seal inside.

Place the cookie dough balls on a baking tray, making sure to leave space between them so the cookies can spread while baking, and sprinkle each one with sea salt flakes as desired.

Bake for 10–12 minutes, then allow to cool on the tray on a wire rack.

Much as we love chocolate, we can’t help but feeling about five years old as we rip the wrapping off our old-school Easter egg every year.

If your taste in treats has graduated to something a little more sophisticated by this stage, you’re going to want to hear about Butlers Chocolates’ newest offerings.

The Irish chocolatiers have launched a range of three ultra-decadent Easter eggs, each with five signature Butlers truffles in a keepsake powder-puff style box.

Butlers Milk Chocolate Egg with Milk Chocolate Flake Truffles, €15

Butlers Dark Chocolate Egg with 70% Gold Dusted Truffles, €15

Butlers White Chocolate Egg with Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles, €15

Rather than scoffing the whole lot in one go, these luxury eggs are definitely for savouring (well, unless you really can’t resist).

We’ve also been eyeing up these mini-eggs, each made from a different variety of Butlers chocolate, including 70% dark, mixed berry, and honeycomb crisp.

Butlers 3 Chocolate Egg Box, €10

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a bit non-traditional this year how about a cocktail-inspired box of choccies?

Whether you are a Gin Martini or Raspberry Cosmo kinda gal, this box of sweet treats proves that Easter is not just for the kids.

Butlers The Cocktail Menu, €15

Of course, if it’s a taste of childhood nostalgia you’re really after this Easter, Butlers have you covered on that front too.

Butlers Milk or White Chocolate Rabbit, €9.95 each

Is there anything that can’t be made better by the addition of a chocolate bunny? We think not.

To add to the Easter fun, if you’re heading along to the Butlers Chocolate Experience in Dublin between March 18 and March 26, the Easter Bunny will be on hand to meet and greet visitors and accompany participants on a fun filled Easter Egg Hunt after each tour. Booking details here.

Time to start hinting heavily to your nearest and dearest.

Butlers Chocolate Easter range is available from selected retail outlets nationwide, any one of the 18 Butlers Chocolate Cafés in Dublin, Cork, Galway or Limerick and online.


Butlers is all about happiness. Whether you’re looking for happiness or want to heighten your current happy state, Butlers can help you do that.

Not only do they provide tasty drinks and comforting chocolate treats, but at each visit, you’ll leave with an experience and a story to tell – no joke.

Butlers Oreo Milkshake is possibly one of Dublin’s best secrets and their white hot chocolate is  no exception – simply divine!

The best part about it is, you don’t always have to pop into their café to enjoy a tasty hot chocolate. You can just pick up one of Butlers Hot Chocolate packs and enjoy it at home.

Some people think Butlers is a bit on the pricey end of things, but given you get to choose a delightful complimentary chocolate bite with your hot drink, it’s worth every penny.


There’s less than a month until Valentine’s Day, so if you’re already thinking ahead, we have a great idea for you.

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so why not stay in that night and make him something amazing as a treat?

Butler’s have announced their Chocolate Experience Valentine’s Day Cookery Demo taking place Feb 1st, where you can learn to cook a range of exquisite chocolate recipes, such as Decadent Chocolate Cocktail and Cupid’s Chocolate Honey and Almond cake.

Definitely a lovely gift that’s fun for both of you, so head over to Butler’s website now for more information, dates and to book tickets.
