Recipe by  

"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.

Santa will be sad that these won't last until his arrival! Amazing!!! I do have to admit that I love the salty with the sweet contrast, so I tripled (yes...tripled) the salt that the recipe called for. I also sprinkled a little extra salt on top prior to baking. Not too salty in my opinion! These also got the stamp of approval from my husband and our 22 month old. Oh...I used a corse kosher salt. I was also intimidated by cutting the caramel aspect. I got out the scissors and voila! So super easy. I will definitely make these again although I might make smaller cookies! Yum!!!

Awesome! The only thing I'd change is I bought some caramel baking bits, so instead of doing 2 cups chocolate chips...I will probably try 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup caramel bites. Thanks for sharing!!

I didn't have the energy to make these as individual cookies, so I put the whole thing in a baking dish, pressed the caramels on top and baked for ~25 minutes. Delish! That extra little bit of salt adds a nice touch to a potentially overly-sweet cookie. I used scissors to snip the caramel pieces like another reviewer and it makes the process go pretty quick.

These cookies tasted good but they looked like a hot mess. I followed the instructions and put the caramel on top of the cookie. I should have read the Cook's note first and done them all that way. This recipe would be better of the Cook's notes were the actual institutions not the other way around. 1/2 of them look horrible and the second 1/2 not as bad. Mine were not pretty at all and were very flat. They do taste good though.
