The perfect sweet & salty cookie. The crispy yet chewy cookie dough is loaded with chocolate chips and crunchy caramel and then sprinkled with sea salt.
Place hard caramels in a zip loc bag. Place a dish towel over the bag. Bash with a rolling pin until you're left with chocolate chip sized pieces.
Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the softened butter and sugars.
Add the eggs, then mix in all the remaining ingredients, except for chocolate chips and caramel pieces. Mix until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips and caramel pieces.
Using a cookie scoop, drop individual scoops of cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet until you have about 8 or 9 cookies on the sheet.
Bake at 375°f for 10 minutes.
