These chocolate cookies with sea salt caramel chips make the world a better place. They simply have it all: sea salt caramel chips, chocolate chips in a delicious chocolate cookie dough with a pinch of cinnamon.
A sweet and salty dream
Why just use chocolate chips if you can also use sea salt caramel chips for your cookies to make them even tastier? Well, enough said – we used both and they blend together in a heavenly way in this scrumptious cookie. Everything about these cookies is simply perfect: they are chewy and have the right balance between sweet and salty. Also, you could of course leave out the chocolate chips since you will already use cocoa for the cookie dough, but we highly recommend you to add at least some chocolate chips to the dough too to make the cookies even more delicious.
Let’s make some cookies!
You will probably already have almost all the ingredients at home and can find sea salt caramel chips at your local grocery store or order them online. The cookie dough for these sea salt caramel chocolate cookies is prepared in only about ten minutes. All you will need to do is mix all ingredients in a large bowl and blend them well. We prepared some pretty big cookies, similar to the ones you usually get at your favorite coffee shop. This recipe is the perfect amount for about 20-24 big cookies. If you prefer smaller cookies, you can of course also make some smaller ones. In this case the dough will be enough for about 35-40 cookies.
It’s hard to be sad when you’re eating a cookie.
How to make cookies like a pro?
When you roll the cookie dough into approximately 1 inch balls (=size of a big walnut), make sure to wet your hands with water to avoid the dough sticking to your hands. Also, never put more than 5 cookie dough balls on the baking tray in order to avoid them sticking to each other and not being perfectly round. Make sure not to over bake them: Your cookies will be baked in about 8-10 minutes. We recommend to take them out of the oven while they are still a bit soft. Please remember that even though they might seem a bit too soft when you take them out of the oven, once they cool down they will be perfectly chewy and will stay fresh for about 4-6 days if stored correctly. Let them cool on the tray or enjoy them still warm with a tea, coffee or a glass of milk.
When in doubt, bake cookies.
