A delightful treat with a dash of salt and stuffed with caramels. The perfect combination of all nice and sweet in every bite. Excellent for cookie exchange, Halloween or holiday treat.


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 ¾ cups brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips
18 eaches unwrapped caramel candies (such as Werther’s®), each cut into 6 pieces


Step 1: Ready the oven. Preheat it to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Add and whisk the baking soda, flour, and salt in a medium mixing bowl until incorporated.

Step 3: Add the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in a different mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat the mixture until completely mixed.

Step 4: Slowly add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Continue to beat until creamy.

Step 5: Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and stir until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Step 6: Split the dough and make them into balls. Add them to the prepared baking sheet an inch apart from each other.

Step 7: On top of each cookie, add 3 slices of caramel.

Step 8: Bake in the preheated oven for about 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 9: Once done, allow to cool at room temperature before serving. Enjoy!


I prefer adding the caramels on top of the dough before baking. It looks much better than mixing it with the dough.
