Sea Salt Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies

September 8, 2017Teresa

Okay, prepare yourself for one heavenly cookie….Sea Salt Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies. Yay! Do you really want to amp up your Peanut Butter Cookies? Then add sea salt caramel chips to the batter and presto! Sea Salt Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies are the result. I know I’ve been on a sea salt caramel cookie kick lately. I’ve made them plain, I’ve added chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. No matter how I make them, every different variety is mouthwatering.

Sea salt caramel chips aren’t the easiest things to find. I usually get mine at Kroger and they refer to them in their private selection as salted caramel chips. I’ve found the Hershey’s brand at larger Wal-Mart Super Centers, but not at smaller or neighborhood Wal-Mart stores.

This time when I started with my amazing Mrs. Field’s copycat recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies, I substituted Reese’s peanut butter chips and a bag of salted caramel chips. Oh my. They were fantastic. Who would have thought that caramel and peanut butter would taste so great together? You will feel you’re in seventh heaven after one bite of these jewels.

As I write this, I am in the process of training for Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.  Along with a friend from our church, I plan to deploy to Northwest Houston tomorrow to help with ongoing efforts to aid Hurricane Harvey victims. I will be assisting with one of the feeding units.

We are setting up a unit in a local church to help feed neighborhood folks who have not eaten for a few days. The needs are great, and while we have a great volunteer network, there’s always need for more volunteers. I live in the Dallas area which is only about four hours away from Houston. So we are off tomorrow morning and return a week from Sunday.

I have felt from the beginning that I have to do something to help. While I still have my health and no kids at home that have to be taken care of, I have no excuse not to go. I’m going as a volunteer with SBC Disaster Relief as they team up with the Red Cross to provide meals. If anyone reading this is also interested in helping, check out this site here and here for more information.

While I am gone I will probably be out of commission as far as blogging goes.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a batch of these terrific Sea Salt Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies for your next tailgating party! They’re not difficult to whip up and everyone will be thrilled from the first bite. You will too. 🙂

Recipe Notes

NOTE: There are times when I’m making a double batch of this recipe where I have to add an additional quarter to half cup of flour in order to be able to roll the dough into balls. If the dough gets too sticky. Add a little flour to the batter.

NOTE: My cookies took almost 20 minutes to bake.
