Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!
