On the seventh day of Homemade Christmas, we have Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Salted Caramel was one of my favorite sweet food trends. It is still around but you just don’t hear about it as much anymore but that won’t make me stop having salted caramel dreams. Dreams like this Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie.
While out doing my grocery shopping I have noticed salted caramel chips in a few different brands. I couldn’t help myself so I bought some and my question soon changed to, what will I make with these? I decided on cookies.
While I could have just added the chips to my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe I decided to look and see if there were already any recipes using the caramel chips too. While there were a few I decided to tweak a recipe that originally called for caramel candies. While it was similar to my chocolate chip cookie recipe it was just different enough.
The caramel chips worked perfectly in the place of the candies and my family devoured these cookies in no time at all. I was lucky to get one to try. Yes, I have a family of cookie eating monsters.
The cookie was a good cookie. It had just the right texture and the sea salt on top of each cookie was perfect. I could definitely see these on a cookie tray, if I could keep them away from my family.
