Hello Choctoberfest and everything chocolate! I am starting this party off right with these decadent chocolate crinkle cookies filled with ooey-gooey caramel.

So the kids were actually fighting over these cookies, not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing? I mean, these cookies really are amazingly delicious. Hubs stayed out of the fight and grabbed a few and fled the room! Smart guy, don’t risk getting a finger broken! LOL.

This may be the BEST COOKIE EVER! Yeah, I said it. You be the judge!! I mean seriously, chocolate, caramel, and more chocolate, how can you go wrong?? You really can’t.

Here is a little background info about Imperial Sugar! In 1843, along the banks of Oyster Creek in what would later become Sugar Land, the Williams brothers built a mule-powered sugar mill, began grinding sugar cane, and a Texas legacy was born.

The Imperial Sugar Company is the one of the oldest continuously operating companies in the State of Texas and was founded by one of the original 100 families brought to the state by Stephen F. Austin.

For 175 years, Imperial Sugar has been a trusted name in family kitchens all across the south.

Sweet things happen when people come together in the kitchen, and that’s why Imperial Sugar has been at the heart of family traditions and celebrations for generations.

They’re the secret ingredient in family-favorite recipes handed down from one generation to another. Home cooks know that when you bake with love and Imperial Sugar, that’s when memories are made.

Imperial Sugar provides high-quality sugar and sweetener products and over 100 years of time-tested recipes.

The family of products includes granulated sugar, light and dark brown sugar, free-flowing sugar, powdered sugar, sugar shakers and Steviacane® (Stevia + sugar blend).

Imperial Sugar products are 100% pure cane sugar, non-GMO and provide consistently delicious results.
