Here’s an impulse seasonal buy at ALDI if I ever saw one: Bake House Creations Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough ready-to-bake-cookies, a mouthful of a name for a mouthful of a cookie!

At $2.79 these aren’t exactly cheap: But, you do get twelve good-sized “fresh-baked” cookies per batch. They cook up pretty close to homemade, too, especially for refrigerated cookie dough, and are delightfully full of chocolate chunks and caramel. Be sure to space the balls of dough the recommended two inches apart, as they spread out into good-sized cookies and will morph together into one giant misshapen cookie if given half a chance.

Bake House Creations Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough, A Review

You can’t beat the convenience here, either, making this ready-to-bake chocolate chunk cookie dough a fun project to make with littler ones. You don’t even need to slice the dough; just move the pre-made balls of dough from their plastic container onto your prepared baking sheet, and go. (They of course don’t cook up as delightfully round and perfect as pictured on the package, but what does, really?)

I baked our batch of sea salt caramel chocolate chunk cookies on one of my Crofton silicone baking mats from last year. These mats have held up quite nicely, and are again back in ALDI stores for holiday bakers — but silicone baking mats aren’t much more expensive elsewhere, if you miss them in store this season. (Check out this two pack on Amazon, for instance.)

If you don’t have silicone baking mats, you’ll definitely want to line your pan with parchment paper. The molten caramel in these cookies means serious business: Be careful not to burn your tongue, and be careful to let them cool a bit before moving them off the pan. Mine pulled off the baking mat beautifully, but stuck firmly onto the plate, which I had to scrape off later under hot water to get clean.

These cookies got a firm double thumbs up from Middle School Guy, whose only regret is that you get few enough in the package that it’s too hard to sneak extras. I baked these up, gave him one, went to take the garbage out, and came back to noticeably fewer cookies than there were before. At first, he adamantly denied eating two extra cookies… but when you only start out with 12, he had to give up that game pretty quickly.

Overall, Bake House Creations sea salt caramel chocolate chunk cookies are recommended if you want your fresh-baked cookie fix without the hassle and mess. Not a lot of sea salt flavor comes through, but you do get a good dose of both chocolate and caramel in this satisfying seasonal dessert.

  • I shop at Aldis in jasper al. I love your bake house creations cookie dough but rarely do they have it. Requesting this store to carry this product year round

  • You are not kidding they don’t look like the picture! Mine spread out 4-4 1/2 inches! They were very flat. The flavor was ok. As a former baker for 6 schools and 2 day cares, I can honestly say, there is something missing in this recipe. I am extremely disappointed.

    • I agree with you Donna, I’ve made three packages of these over the last few months, and every time they’ve come out very flat! Even though I used different parchment papers, Silpat mats, and cookie sheets each time.

      The ones I purchased last year baked perfectly and were so delicious.

      Did they change the recipe this year or what? Such a disappointment.

  • OMG. My family and I are addicted to these cookies. I added pecans to my dough, because I love nuts and they were awesome. I did not know these were seasonal. I went to (3) Aldi stores yesterday looking for them and was advised they were seasonal. If I would have known this, I would have bought what they had available. Not sure if they can be purchased elsewhere, but I will travel to get more of these.

  • I recently picked up the Chocolate Chip variation of these, and they turned out perfectly!!! In less than 14 minutes you can have delicious tasting cookies!
    I added a dash of cinnamon atop every cookie before baking and it entered up jazzing up the flavor!

    Deffoo recommend this! I really wish this was a regular in their Aldi store lineup though!

  • The end product of this cookie dough tasted like you would expect, hard caramel and not coming out looking like the picture. Put it in the oven for the time on the package and then they spread out very thin and kind of whiteage. Had to bake an additional couple of minutes to get the dough to brown up a bit. These cookies do not look like the package display. They are not worth the price paid.

  • So, I just made these and my kids tasted them and immediately said, “they taste like Mac and cheese!” I thought they were crazy but I tried a bite and THEY DO!
    I’m supposed to bring them to a party tonight…thankfully I made another dessert and these were just an extra. I’m bringing them anyway for the intrigue, but NO. They are not good.
