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!
