Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! What a fun treat to celebrate. I don’t know about you, but at our house chocolate chip cookies are a staple. We make them at least once a month and each batch doesn’t last long! I took one simple ingredient and made our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe even better. Caramel. Seriously! It’s a no-brainer- you’ve got to try them.

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup salted caramel chips
  • 2 4-oz bags SOFT caramels

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. {I use these parchment sheets– love them!}

Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and shortening. Add in sugars and eggs and mix once more. Add in 1/2 the flour, the baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Add in remaining flour and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and salted caramel chips. {If you can’t find these, just use 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chips instead. I find them at my local Kroger grocery store and they’re heavenly!}

Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough (I use this cookie scoop here) and take 1 unwrapped caramel and stuff it in the center. Adjust the dough around the caramel so that it’s covered completely.

Place 9 balls of dough on a cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes.

Once baked, transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool a few minutes and ENJOY!

  1. Oh gosh. These look fantastic! Where do you find the salted caramel chips? I’ve never heard of them, but now I need them in my life immediately!

    • I want to know too Kara!! I can’t even find them by googling! I wonder if they’re the little caramel bits?? Waiting to hear!!!

      • Hi Donna – you can actually find bags of soft caramels at most grocery stores! Look on the candy aisle- the 2 most popular brands are Werthers and Lancaster. They say “Soft Caramels” right on the package. I even found them in the checkout lane at Walmart! Chances are you’ve seen them, you just don’t realize it. 😉
