Tasty Corner: Soft Chocolate Salted Caramel Cookies

I love this recipe.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 9-11 Minutes

24-36 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1 C butter (or 2 sticks) softened or melted

1 C sugar

1 C brown sugar

1/2 C cocoa

2 eggs

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp vanilla

2 1/2 C flour

2 C chocolate chips

1 package of caramels

kosher salt-optional

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cream butter and sugars. Add in cocoa and eggs and mix till combined. Add dry ingredients and mix then stir in chocolate chips.

Unwrap the caramels. Roll a ball of dough about 1 to 1 1/2 inches big with 1 caramel in the middle of it.

Sprinkle the cookie dough with kosher salt (optional).

Bake for 9 minutes (give or take 1 minute but 9 minutes is exactly right in my oven) at 375 degrees on a greased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with a Silicone mat.

Let these sit for a few minutes to cool, but eat them while they are warm so that the caramel is still gooey.

Spread the cookies with caramel and sprinkle with sea salt.

If you aren’t serving them right away, warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds before eating to soften the caramel.
