Sea Salt Caramel Cookies

August 18, 2017Teresa

Okay, let me just say it. Sea Salt Caramel Cookies are awesome! These cookies start with my fantastic copycat recipe of Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. But instead of using chocolate chips, I substituted sea salt caramel chips instead. Let me tell you these cookies were a sensation! I’ve done two things to the original recipe to make it better. First, I added additional flour so the cookies wouldn’t collapse after baking. Second, I now bake them about 13-15 minutes instead of 9 minutes to ensure that they’re not just like eating cookie dough!

Back in July, our church hosted a Kid’s Fest (carnival) at a local park. We had over 1,700 people come through for Friday and Saturday nights. I volunteered to bake cookies and recruit many others to do the same. When we ran out of cookies on Friday night, I went home and baked up two huge batches of these cookies and several others. Then on Saturday, I baked another 500 cookies so we wouldn’t run out that night. I also recruited about 5-8 additional people to help with cookies.

One of the cookies I put out on Saturday night were these jewels. I had a guy track me down and beg me to give his wife the recipe. He said these were the best cookies he’s ever put into his mouth! High praise, indeed. 🙂 So because I’ve made this recipe multiple times and have the recipe memorized, I typed it into her phone and also gave her the name of my blog. I told her it would be about a month before the recipe got posted. But if her husband needed a fix before then, she would have the recipe.

I have to admit Sea Salt Caramel Chips are growing on me. I’ve made several recipes with them now and they make every recipe better! They’re particularly good in this excellent chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. I used two different kinds of sea salt caramel chips for this recipe. One was from Hershey’s and those chips are much lighter in color. The darker caramel colored chips came from Kroger’s own brand.

If you need a fantastic recipe to wrap up the summer holidays, then Sea Salt Caramel Cookies is it! These are great for Back-to-School bashes, Labor Day, family reunions, tailgating parties or any backyard BBQ. Try them today and prepare to drool.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients. Because I made a double batch, I didn’t have enough sea salt caramel chips with just one brand of caramel chip. So I used a couple of bags from Kroger and a couple of bags from Hershey’s.
