"I had a craving for chocolate chip cookies with caramel chunks. All I had on hand for salt was coarse salt and, much to my surprise, the result was delicious."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat brown sugar, butter, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter mixture until blended; beat in vanilla extract. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is just combined; fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Divide dough into thirty six 2 tablespoon-size balls; arrange on a baking sheet. Press 3 caramel pieces into each dough ball.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • By strategically placing the caramels in the cookie dough ball instead of mixing it in the cookie dough itself, it allows for a prettier cookie and the caramel has less tendency to spill out onto the cookie sheet.

I bought Werthers caramel hard candies which can't be right. Not only were the cookies a hot mess, spread out too much and flat but the caramel chunks were still hard.

Very Yummy Cookies! My 3rd batch of these were my favorite. I like my cookies "cakey," so I used half crisco shortening and half salted butter to cut down on spreading (in all 3 batches). Used...

you definitely need to triple to salt, and make sure that the caramel in cut into small pieces

I used Hershey's Salted Caramel chips in place of the Caramel candy. And cut the salt asked for in half, will make again.

I really like these cookies. Used salted butter instead of tripling the salt in the recipe as some people suggested. I also sprinkled kosher salt on top prior to baking. This is a definite keep...
