Salted Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are the most perfect and soft chocolate chip cookies stuffed with ooey gooey caramel and topped with sea salt! No chilling required!!
I have something exciting to share with you today! I am so proud of my brother for the release of his new book, All Parents Must Go!, I know you are going to love it!! It is beautifully illustrated and it has such a fun story that my boys absolutely loved. It tells the story of a town where its kids decide to trade their parents for their “iPads”. The best part about it though is that they get rid of their parents by piling them into a rocket ship and blasting them over the mountain to live on a beach by themselves. So after finishing the book I thought “If everyone’s parents were banished, what would kids eat?” So today I’ll be sharing a quick and easy cookie recipe that my boys would probably end up living off of if they were the characters in this fun book.
Aren’t the illustrations incredible!?? My brother is amazing!
When I tell you that these cookies are the best that you will eat, it is no lie! It took me three batches to perfect these cookies but I promise they are perfect. The most soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie gets stuffed with ooey gooey caramel and sprinkled with sea salt. What is not to love?
I know that this is a recipe that you will want to make again and again. They are great for a nice warm treat with a tall glass of milk while snuggling up and reading All Parents Must Go!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup plus 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate if you prefer)
- 20 kraft caramels, or 20 rolo chewy caramels ** see note
- coarse sea salt for sprinkling
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt.
- In another medium bowl or stand mixer add the butter, and sugars and beats until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Roll about 2 tablespoons of the cookie dough into a ball. Add one caramel into the center and fold the dough over the caramel and form a ball. Place onto the cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
I highly recommend All Parents Must Go! It is is seriously one of the funnest books I have read, and teaches the lesson of how important it is for kids to get away from their devices once in a while. Even more than that, it shows that kids and parents coming together to help each other is an important part of being happy.
