Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi everyone! Jenn back from Deliciously Sprinkled with a delicious cookie recipe, that I know you all are going to LOVE! These Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Could there really be a better combination?

I started with my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. These cookies are smaller than a regular sized chocolate chip cookie, but don’t worry I did this on purpose so I could put a generous amount of salted caramel in the middle of each cookie….you’re welcome! I also drizzled them with melted chocolate to make these cookies even more delicious. Enjoy!

    Can’t wait to make these – look totally yummy!! Are the sprinkles the sea salt? I couldn’t find what kind of sprinkles you were referring to. Thanks!

  2. What kind of wooden spoon do you use … mine would only make a little indentation and yours looks pretty big? Can’t wait to try this recipe. I have made a recipe similar one with jam in the center.

  3. Sandy_of_WV says:

    370° oven — is that correct -or- should it be 375°?

  4. Does it matter if you use milk or heavy whipping cream for melting the caramel? Does one turn out better than the other?
