How To Make Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter and sugars into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat until well combined, a good minute or two. Stir in eggs and vanilla, mixing until creamy and smooth. Add flour, pudding mix, salt and baking soda. Slowly mix until dough forms them stir in chocolate chunks to combine. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop heaping scoops of dough and press a center “well” to make room for three halved caramels. Place the caramels in the middle of the dough and enclose the cookie dough around the caramel pieces. Place stuffed cookie dough pieces onto baking sheet, placing 2 inches apart. Press slightly so they’re not perfect round balls and sprinkle lightly with sea salt if desired. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until baked through. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before transferring.

Prepare dough and stir in chocolate chunks. My favorite chocolate to use for cookies is from Trader Joe’s. It comes in a large block and I chop it up as needed.

Make an indention or “well” in scoops of cookie dough to make a spot for the caramel pieces.

I use 3 pieces of caramel for each cookie. Wrap and enclose caramels with cookie dough.

Place the caramels in the middle of the dough and enclose the cookie dough around the caramel pieces. Place stuffed cookie dough pieces onto baking sheet, placing 2 inches apart.

Notes

Tip: Right when you take cookies out of oven, carefully use a knife to round edges of any cookies that might have spread more than you'd like or if there are any uneven areas of the cookies. I use this trick every time I bake cookies. They're soft enough to shape while still hot.
