I absolutely adore Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies! These delightful cookies have it all. Sea salt caramel chips and chocolate chips in a delicious chocolate chip cookie dough. Yes, caramel chips and chocolate chips blend together in a heavenly way in this scrumptious cookie. Everything about the cookie is perfect. 🙂
Back at the end of July, my husband and I stayed with my sister and her husband in a condo in Breckenridge, Colorado. We’ve been there many times throughout the years and stayed with this particular resort several times as well. We love to shop in all the quaint shops there as well as EAT, EAT and EAT some more! One of the things we always do is stop by a local cookie shop where we buy
hundreds way too many cookies. It was hideous how many cookies we bought (enough for a month probably!)
One of the cookies I sampled was a Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was with that cookie. It was horribly salty. I mean SO salty that I could hardly eat the thing. It was awful. Rarely do I write negatively about something bad I’ve tried from restaurants, bakeries or food blogs. Ratting out someone else’s work is not my style. But this cookie was R-E-A-L-L-Y B-A-D! I’m not sure where they came up with their recipe but I don’t see how they can sell much of it because you wouldn’t have any repeat customers. Enough.
So I determined when I got home from our Colorado vacation to try to make a delicious cookie with sea salt caramels and chocolate chips that wasn’t so salty that you had to spit the cookie out! I believe I accomplished that with this fantastic cookie. I have a favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie dough (Mrs. Field’s Copycat recipe), that I’ve improved upon that I use as my base. But instead of three cups of chocolate chips, this recipe has 2 cups of chocolate chips and 2 cups of sea salt caramel chips so it’s extra rich, decadent and absolutely divine!
If you want to thrill your family and friends then you’ve got to make these delicious jewels for your next potluck, tailgating party or to fill your cookie jar. I guarantee they’re not too salty–they’re just right. You’ll gobble them down in no time (no spitting the cookies out with this recipe!) 🙂 Yes, you may even start drooling. I think it’s time for me to make up another batch…..
Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are divine!
These cookies are perfect for holiday baking, tailgating parties or family desserts.
If you enjoy caramel and chocolate, you’ll find these cookies heavenly.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Soften butter and place in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Mix with an electric mixer until creamy.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add a bag of sea salt caramel chips and chocolate chips.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until done.
Your friends and family are sure to love these delicious cookies.
Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are a dream. Everyone will love them.
I guarantee you will drool over every bite.
