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.

Yield:
3 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 ¾ cups brown sugar

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups chocolate chips

  • 18 unwrapped caramel candies (such as Werther's®), each cut into 6 pieces

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.

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.
