  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • extra Sea Salt for sprinkling on top of caramel
  • 1/2 -11 oz package Kraft Caramels about 18-20 caramels
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream

Instructions

  1. Pre heat oven to 375 convection or 400 degrees regular bake and set rack in center of oven.
  2. Melt 4 oz unsweetened chocolate in microwave in a small bowl for 30 seconds, Continue to melt in 15 second intervals until smooth, set aside.
  3. Place the butter and sugars into the bowl of a stand mixer or a large bowl.
  4. Beat butter and sugars on medium speed until smooth. Add eggs. Beat on low until butter, sugar and eggs are incorporated, scraping bottom of bowl once or twice to insure all ingredients are mixed together.
  5. Add melted chocolate, and beat on low until smooth, again, scrape bottom of bowl once or twice.
  6. Add flour, baking soda and salt all at once.
  7. Mix on low or pulse mixer until all flour disappears and all ingredients are incorporated.
  8. Using two lightly greased baking sheets, scoop out dough onto baking sheets, 8 scoops to a sheet. I use a 2 1/4 inch cookie scoop.
  9. Lightly press the center of the cookie with palm of hand.
  10. Bake cookies for 7-8 minutes or until top is barely set and is no longer wet.
  11. Remove from oven and re-shape the cookies with a small spatula if the cookies spread during baking. This needs to be done while cookies are still hot out of the oven. Let cookies cool on baking sheet.
  12. For caramel:
  13. Unwrap about 1/2 of an 11 oz package of Kraft Caramels and place caramels in a microwave safe bowl. Melt for 45 seconds in microwave, remove and stir. Continue to melt caramel at 15 second intervals, until caramel is melted and easy to stir with a spoon. Add 1 tablespoons of milk and stir into caramel until the caramel is smooth and easy to scoop with a spoon and drizzle onto cookies.
  14. Drizzle caramel onto cookies and immediately sprinkle with a bit of sea salt.
  15. Let cool completely before serving or placing on a serving platter.
