Your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!
Chocolate covered soft caramel candies (like Rolos)
Or soft caramels cut in half for each cookie
Optional: coarse salt to sprinkle on top to make these salted caramel chocolate chip cookies!
To make these, simply make your cookie dough as you would normally (leave the baking temperature & time the same as well), and let it chill in the fridge for about 20 – 30 minutes. Once the dough is chilled, preheat your oven (I bake mine at 375 deg F) and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Place a chocolate covered caramel (or a soft caramel cut in half) in the middle of each cookie, make sure it’s completely sealed with cookie dough all around and form a ball shape. Place your cookies on your baking sheets, at least 2 inches apart, then bake according to your cookie recipe directions! Let the baked cookies sit on the baking sheets for at least 5 minutes after they come out of the oven so all the caramel doesn’t ooze out! They are best eaten slightly warm when the caramel is all melted!
