Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made a batch of Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday afternoon to take to a Super Bowl Party and let me just say, they were worth every single calorie!
 

Even my husband liked them and he's a purist when it comes to chocolate chip cookies - don't mess with the recipe on the back of the little yellow bag!

 
The flavor combination of chocolate chips, soft caramel and a touch of sea salt - pefection!
 
 
I went looking for a dessert recipe in my Pinterest folder, where of course there are more recipes than I'll ever be able to actually make. This one from Two Peas and Their Pod looked like a real crowd pleaser. And not only did I love the flavor combination, but I was intrigued by the secret ingredient for super soft cookies - cornstarch.
 
 
A little crispy on the outside, definitey soft and chewy on the inside. Mmmm, they were amazing warm, right out of the oven. Good thing I'm going to the gym today!
 
 
They were gone before halftime - this recipe is definitely a keeper!
 
Good food, good friends and the home team won!
Way to go Ravens!
 
And how about you, found any new keeper recipes on Pinterest lately?

Oh, I think I saw that cornstarch tip too, but haven't tried it yet. Glad to know it works. And yes, we have the recipe on the back of the yellow bag memorized, so getting the family to try anything else is a tough sell. I might just make these and not say anything until they've tried them! So glad you shared.

you see, THIS is the way to make choc chip cookies. i am loving anything with salt and dessert these days!

Gail Wilson said...

although they look delicious, I don't like to mix salty and sweet. :) even though I love both.

I guess I'm on the hubby's side.
