Unbelievable Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Cookies Recipe

Julie Ryan Evans Yum!

salted caramel chocolate chip cookiesJust the words "salted caramel" are enough to get me excited. Add them to chocolate chip cookies, and I can think of almost nothing better.

From Virtually Homemade, these salted caramel chocolate chip cookies are some of my all-time favorites. They are buttery and rich, and the touch of salt adds the perfect punch. These cookies are so good they're scary -- even scarier is how easy they are to whip up and how well they go with coffee ... or wine ... or milk.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup crushed Werther's Original candies
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
Cooking Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips and caramels.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silpat.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with desired amount of kosher salt. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
