  • I love chocolate chips cookies and as you know, anything salted caramel.  So naturally, when I spotted this recipe on Pinterest, I had to try it!  It’s nearly as quick and easy to make as traditional chocolate chip cookies, with the added caramel sauce.  They were almost as amazing as I thought they would be, however, the caramel becomes crunchy and a bit too many chocolate chips for me.  So I adapted the recipe with my caramel sauce.
