These cookies won me over for their texture. Bonus for being nearly identical to the chocolate chip cookies I’ve been trying to recreate from the bakery just a few miles away from us. Yep, these babies are bakery quality. They stack up to any competition! I just wish I could say I wrote this recipe myself. They are thick, chewy, stuffed with rolos and topped with sea salt.

To Make These Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies, You Will Need:

You just need a handful of pantry staple ingredients to make these delicious cookies!

  • Flour, baking soda, cornstarch
  • Salt and butter
  • White and brown sugar
  • Egg: Free run / organic if possible.
  • Vanilla: Pure over imitation is preferred.
  • Chocolate chips: You can use dark or milk.
  • Rolos and salt

How to Make Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Mix dry ingredients and set aside. In mixer/mixing bowl, whisk butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Blend dry ingredients in. Stir in chocolate chips. Chill dough for 2 hours. Remove dough from fridge {about 10 minutes}. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper {we don’t want any extra cleanup, do we?}.
  2. Roll dough into large balls or use a scoop. Press the middle of your dough with your thumb and insert rolo. Cover with dough. Crack sea salt on top and bake 13 minutes {resist the temptation to bake longer!} Allow to cool and enjoy!

The Best Stuffed Cookie Recipe

Want a taste of heaven? These salted caramel chocolate chip cookies are the stuff that dreams are made of. Why? Because they’re stuffed with chocolate and caramel! It really takes no extra effort than regular chocolate chip cookies and the result is just to die for!

A Salty and Sweet Cookie Recipe

I’m of the belief cookies should always be stuffed, just for a little added surprise, but there’s another secret. A crack of sea salt on top. It puts them over the edge! I’m always a lover of sweet and salty, like my  Easy Salted Caramel Pecan Pie Bars, I just love that hit of different flavors you get.

These cookies are perfect for the holidays and Christmas cookie exchanges, but honestly, they are a must all year round!
