Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (round 2!)

I made these a while ago, and they are by far one of my all time favourite cookies to make. The recipe is SO easy, just basic cookie ingredients with some chocolate chips and caramels. It takes 15 mins to make, and 10 mins per cooking round. Plus what I love about this recipe is that it doesn’t call for chilling the dough, because I always hate that. I wanted to bake something tonight that was easy, fast, and of course still yummy! I highly recommend you bake these if you’re visiting a friend and want to take something to their house or if you’re simply craving some cookies!


I used a different recipe then I did last time, simply because this new one called for cornstarch and I know from previous experience cornstarch does wonders to your cookies. Make them more “pillow-y” if that even is a word, haha! I just thought this new recipe would be a good one to try out – and I was right!


  • 2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Caramel Bits
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, cornstarch, baking soda and sea salt together. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients.

4. Stir in the chocolate chips and caramel bits. Form cookie dough into tablespoon balls and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.

5. Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Note-I buy the Kraft Caramel Bits at Target. If you can’t find Kraft Caramel Bits, you can use caramel squares. Just chop them up into pieces.

    Do the cookies come out “cakey” or is it like a soft batched cookie?

      Hey girl! No they do not come out cakey. They come out like a really nice, chewy chocolate chip cookie. 🙂
