A few weeks ago we decided to bake. We haven't been doing much baking. But I've been wanting to use the caramel baking bits we bought, so we decided to make Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies. We saw Valerie Bertinelli make these on her Food Network show and they sounded yummy.
Instead of semisweet chocolate chips we used the Ghiradelli dark chocolate baking bits we had. I really liked these cookies with the dark chocolate bits.
The caramel bits melt a bit when the cookies are baked, so definitely use a silpat or parchment paper. The melted caramel parts of the cookies even stuck to the wire cooling racks.
Happily, the caramel bits are not too chewy and it doesn't feel like they're trying to yank out your teeth. I like these cookies a lot because they come out thick and chewy, not thin and crisp. This is how I like my chocolate chip cookies:
We'll definitely make these again. They're really tasty. Like I ate 5-6 in a day tasty. I know. That's a lot of cookies in a day. I atoned the following week by not having dessert.here.
