Heath Salted Caramel Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chefsalad

After one bite of a Heath salted caramel cookie from Starbucks I knew I would have to find the recipe. I searched the internet, but came up with nothing, so I took my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, changed the ratio of brown sugar to white sugar and substituted Heath bits, crushed pretzels, and white chocolate chips for the chocolate. Sprinkled with a bit of turbinado sugar and coarse salt

I was really excited to try these, but they were just too dry. Maybe the butter shouldn't be melted? Creaming the butter and sugars might have helped them hold together better, but using melted butter made the dough really crumbly. I added an extra egg to try to hold it together. Still had to pack them hard to get the ball shape. As cookies, the taste was good, but not a "wow" and not surprisingly, they tended to fall apart.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
  2. Mix butter and sugars for several minutes, until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla to butter/sugar mixture and combine well.
  4. Stir dry ingredients into butter mixture just until combined. Then fold in toffee, pretzels and white chocolate chips.
  5. Refrigerate cookie mix overnight. This will allow the flavors to combine.
  6. Drop cookies in 2" balls on parchment paper covered pan, sprinkle with turbinado (raw) sugar and a small pinch of coarsely ground sea salt.
  7. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
