I love my parents! Not only are they just great people in general but they also gave me the best Christmas present ever. Like jumping up and down, a little bit of screaming, huge smile for the rest of the week type of present.
I am now the proud owner of a KitchenAid mixer!
I had to break in the mixer with something good and these cookies had my name written all over it. With caramel, lots of chocolate, and a pinch of salt, it really doesn’t get much better
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- 2 sticks softened butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 tbs vanilla
- 1/4 cup caramel sauce
- 3 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
-1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 12 oz bag mini chocolate chips
-1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks (we used Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate)
- Sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350°. Beat together the butter and both of the sugars until well combined. Mix in the vanilla, eggs and caramel. We used sweetened condensed milk to make our caramel. Really easy and cheaper than buying it from the store. In another bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and throw them into the mixer. Once mixed, add in the mini chocolate chips.
With the dough laid out on cookie sheets, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over each of them. Finish off with a few of the chocolate chunks pressed on top. Bake for 11-14 minutes.
These cookies taste just as good as they look. They are sweet, a little salty, chewy and downright delicious.
Aaron and I may have had one before breakfast…. and then another one for dessert. You can have dessert after breakfast, right?
Smash some ice cream between your cookies and now you’ve really got dessert!
