"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!!!
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.
