Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are loaded with caramel bits and sprinkled with sea salt to create a deliciously sweet and salty cookie.
Guys, I have an issue. If you keep up with My Baking Addiction on a regular basis, you may already know what I am talking about.
I have become addicted to all things salted caramel. It’s pretty much the only flavor combination that I want to bake right now. From Salted Caramel Brownies and Salted Caramel Blondies to these Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies – I’m obsessed.
My recent infatuation with this sweet and salty flavor came about after a trip to Whole Foods when, against my better judgement, I picked up a container of their Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels. Have you tried these little bites of caramel bliss? They’re incredible – like can’t keep my fingers out of the container incredible.
Trust me, you should buy them and then have your significant other hide them from you – not that I had Eric do that or anything. We also picked up an amazing watermelon – which we happily noshed on for days. It’s all about balance, my friends – at least that’s what I am telling myself.
Whole Foods Market is honestly one of our favorite places on the planet – we actually make the 40 minute drive about twice a month. Eric has a serious thing for their cheese pizza (which he typically eats in the car before we even leave the parking lot) and I’m a sucker for their mini milk chocolate covered graham crackers. We actually mapped the nearest Whole Foods to our potential vacation rentals before we made our final decision. Ridiculous? Maybe, but priorities!
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies start with my absolute favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, but they get kicked up a notch with the addition of caramel bits and a sprinkling of sea salt. These cookies are my new go-to recipe for summer barbecues, family get togethers and just overall cookie eating. Make them, make them, MAKE THEM – you can thank me later.
