A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THESE CARAMEL STUFFED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES:

🍪This is my current favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and it’s the one I used as the base for these caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Obviously, I swapped the chocolate chunks for chocolate chips. I also made them slightly smaller than I did in the original recipe.

🍪I’ve always struggled with caramel in baked goods (especially in cookies). It’s so hard to keep the caramel from getting too stiff when it cools back down after baking. Recently, I saw another blogger suggest using Werther’s Soft Caramels for baking. I finally gave it a try with these cookies, and they turned out absolutely PERFECT. The caramel didn’t melt and completely disappear into the cookie, but it wasn’t stiff and tough once it cooled. It softened and spread with the cookie just the right amount, still maintaining it’s structure enough to create a gooey, caramel-y center inside each cookie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 24 Werther's Originals Soft Caramels, unwrapped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter with the brown sugar in the microwave. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the egg, the egg yolk, the vanilla, and the milk.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until dough forms.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough and place it on an ungreased cookie sheet. Gently roll one of the caramels into a ball and place it in the center of the cookie dough. Scoop another tablespoon of dough and press it on top of the carmel. Gently seal the sides of the cookie with your fingers.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough and caramels, placing each cookie about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet.
