  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temp1 cup granulated sugar ½ cup brown sugar 2 eggs, large1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 tablespoon homemade salted caramel sauce or store bought2.5 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder½ teaspoon baking sodaPinch of kosher salt10 oz bag chocolate chunks


  • Prepare 2 half sheet trays with parchment paper.In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and sugars on low-medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add the eggs one at a time, combining into the mix before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract and caramel sauce and continue to mix. You may have to scrape down the sides of the bowl to mix everything together. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and continue to mix until dough forms.Stop the mixer, add the chocolate chunks and mix by hand, so you don’t break up the chunks too much. Using an ice cream scooper, or a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop the dough into even shaped balls and line then up on the sheet trays with about 1” of space in between. Freeze for 1 hour.Preheat your oven to 350°F, then bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the chocolate is melty.


  • You can use either a mini scoop or a regular sized scoop to shape the cookie dough. If you use a mini scoop, check the cookie after 12 minutes.
  • If you like a flatter cookie, you can use the pan banging method to create those rippled looking cookies. Simply bake the cookies for 8 minutes, then open the oven, take the cookie tray and slam it against the rack of the oven a few times. Then continue to bake for another 6-7 minutes.
  • You can arrange a few extra pieces of chocolate on top of your dough balls before baking to create a more chocolatey top.
