Let’s get baking!
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup caramel chips or chopped caramel candies
Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Cream the Butter and Sugars:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the Eggs and Vanilla:
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Combine the Dry Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Mix the Dough:
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
Fold in the chocolate chips and caramel chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Scoop the Dough:
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Bake the Cookies:
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set.
Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy Your Cookies:
Once cooled, serve your caramel chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk or cup of coffee for a delicious treat.
Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or freeze for longer storage.
For extra caramel flavor, try drizzling melted caramel over the baked cookies before serving.
If you don’t have caramel chips, you can use chopped caramel candies instead. Just be sure to distribute them evenly throughout the dough.
To make smaller cookies, use a smaller cookie scoop and adjust the baking time accordingly.
Don’t overbake the cookies if you want them to be soft and chewy. They may look slightly underdone when you take them out of the oven, but they will continue to firm up as they cool.
Satisfy your cravings with these decadent caramel chocolate chip cookies. With their perfect balance of sweetness and richness, they’re sure to be a hit with friends and family alike. Enjoy!
