Hello folks and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen! This is as near to perfect as a cookie can get. It’ll bake to a nice crunch around the edges, while keeping a chewy center, thanks to my caramel pieces. Trust me. You’ll make big points with these cookies! Let me show y’all how to stir ’em up.
“Amazing Chocolate Caramel Cookies”
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2¾ cups (12 oz) all-purpose flour
¾ tsp. coarse sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1½ tsp. baking powder
1 and 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 and 1/2 cup caramel chips
We’ll begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, we’ll cream two sticks of softened butter with a cup of brown sugar and a cup of white sugar. We’ll blend this about two minutes until the batter is fluffy and then we’ll add two eggs and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and continue blending another couple minutes.
At that point, we’ll add a teaspoon of baking soda, a teaspoon and a half of baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon of coarse seat salt. Then we’ll slowly add 2 and 3/4 cup of all purpose flour until it’s incorporated into the batter. Now, this last step will deliver the chocolate bang and the chewy caramel flavor. We’ll add a cup and 1/2 of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a cup and half of caramel chips!
Afterwards we’ll drop the batter by a tablespoon and half of dough on a cookie sheet and bake 14-16 minutes. Be careful and watch your cookies because all ovens vary. Your cookies are ready when the edges are golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool a couple minutes on the cookie sheet– if you can. Enjoy my Chocolate Caramel Cookies, y’all! It’s good eating, from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours!
