  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 2 large egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Individual wrapped caramels make sure they are soft like the ones I list above
  • Sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder and baking soda and put aside.
  • In the bowl of your mixer, add butter and both granulated and brown sugars and cream together for 3-4 minutes on high until light and fluffy.
  • Next add in eggs one at a time beating until incorporated. Then add in pure vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
  • Turn down your mixer to low and add in flour mixture in three intervals beating after each addition until well-combined. Lastly, stir in chocolate chips.
  • Place dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Two hours is even better.
  • Scoop cookie dough in balls the size of a tablespoon. Add an unwrapped caramel to the center of 1 ball of dough then add another ball of dough to cover the caramel. Roll into one larger ball of dough
  • and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet at least 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • Bake 11-14 minutes. Cookies may seem a little undone but remove from oven if you like them soft and chewy. If you want them more crisp, bake 14 minutes or longer.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and serve.



Make sure you use a soft caramel or it won't melt.
