Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, cornstarch, baking soda and sea salt together. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  1. I've made this recipe twice now and both times the cookies have been a HUGE hit, especially with my grandchildren. There's just something about chocolate, caramel and sea salt - YUMMY!!! Oh, I've also gotten 37 cookies out of the batch instead of 24 - so I'm probably making them a bit smaller than called for but the good news with that is they are lower in calories and there's more to enjoy :) Thank you so much for posting amara800511 AKA Air Force Mama?
  2. Hi, I was so excited about making these cookies but they just didn't do it for me. The cookies ended up being flat and super greasy. I'm not sure if it was the caramel or maybe silicone baking mats, either way...they tasted good but were too greasy to serve to anyone.
  3. I have a bag of caramel bits in my cupboard so I looked for a cookie recipe that has it and I came across this one. I made it and everybody loved it! We just love how the sea salt balances the sweetness of the sugar,caramel bits and choc chips. I'm definitely making it again :)
