We all know Trader Joe’s has some truly phenomenal desserts like the Raspberry Mousse Cakes and this year’s crowned favorite, the Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches. Despite all the tasty choices stocking the shelves, the grocer just rolled out a new treat — and they have really outdone themselves this time.

Instagram account @trader_joes_treasure_hunt posted about Trader Joe’s recent release, Brookie Caramel Candy Clusters, a crunchy dessert that combines two of our favorite after-dinner treats: brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Each cluster is composed of broken-up pieces of each dessert and is melded together with a mound of gooey caramel. The base of each is dipped in dark chocolate, drizzled with more dark chocolate, and topped with a dusting of sea salt. 

“As anyone who’s tried the Brookie from our bakery section can attest, something utterly magical happens when brownies and chocolate chip cookies meet,” Trader Joe’s writes on their website. “Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that when you invite caramel, dark chocolate, and sea salt to the meeting too, that magic multiplies by an order of magnitude. This the-more-the-merrier spirit is at the heart of Trader Joe’s Brookie Caramel Candy Clusters, an impressively indulgent sweet treat that’s now available at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.”

Each six-ounce bag is selling for $3.99, perfect for movie snacking, hosting, or a chocolate emergency. (We have all been there.) Commenters on the post couldn’t contain their excitement and some wondered if this item would be seasonal. The jury is still out on that so you may want to try these while you can. If you like the sweet and salty combination of the famous Snacky Clusters, there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy these too.
