Amazing taste. The combination of chocolate and caramel go together perfectly.

How to Make The Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut your caramel squares into small pieces. I find using kitchen scissors is the easiest method. Place 10 cut caramels in one bowl, and five cut caramels in another (these will be for topping the cookies. Set both bowls aside.

In a large bowl or stand mixer cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. You want to do this for a good 3 minutes. Add in vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. Beat until mixture is well combined.

In a second bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients into wet and mix until just combined.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips and caramel pieces.

Scoop 3 tbsp sized balls of cookie dough and place on the lined baking sheet 2 inches apart. Top the cookies with the extra caramel pieces and extra chocolate chips.

Bake for 11-12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown on the edges. These cookies spread, to get the perfect round cookie shape as soon as the cookie come out of the oven take a round cookie cutter, (slightly large than the cookies) place it around the cookie and gently swirl it around.

Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet after baking. Enjoy!

Storing the Cookies

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies keep well up to four days.

How to Get Round Cookies

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

Can I Make the Cookies Smaller?

Yes, you can the cookies smaller. Instead scoop 1.5 tbsp worth of dough and bake for 8-9 minutes.
