  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 stick soft unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3.5 oz dark chocolate bar
  • 8 hard caramel candies Werthers Originals is what I used
  • Flaked sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Linne a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl combine the flour and baking soda.
  • Using a stand mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy.
  • Add the vanilla and the egg, mix to combine.
  • Gradually add the flour with the mixer on low and mix just until the dough comes together. Stop mixing.
  • Chop the chocolate bar roughly with a sharp knife and add to the cookie dough.
  • Smash the caramel candies while they are still in the wrapper and then open them placing the broken pieces into the cookie dough.
  • Mix on low for about 20 seconds, just to combine the chocolate and caramel through the dough.
  • Place the dough and mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into pieces each weighing about 1 1/2 ounces.
  • Roll into a ball and place on your prepared tray. You'll probably have to do this in two batches.
  • Leave enough room around each cookie and very gently press down to create a flat top.
  • Bake for 13 minutes and then sprinkle some flaked sea salt on top of each cookie when they come out of the oven.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack and continuing with any remaining dough.
