Like to eat cookies while they’re warm? If you haven’t frosted these cookies, you can rewarm them by placing on a microwavable plate and microwaving uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or until surface of cookie feels warm to the touch. The time will vary depending on the number of cookies heated. Be careful of the hot caramel inside the cookies.
