Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookies

I found this recipe through Pinterest and found Sally's Baking Addiction website.  Sally's Baking Addiction  It looked so mouth-wateringly delicious I had to try it.  Plus, I'm a sucker for salted caramel.  That combo between sweet and savory is so amazing, my mouth is actually watering as I'm typing this!  I have made 2 batches now, and although they were a little work the first time around, the second time went much smoother/easier and they're so worth it.  Brought them to work to keep myself and Reid from eating alllll of them and my boss asked what the special occasion was.  They were gone in a hot minute.

Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookies
Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or morsels, ~60% bittersweet
  • 18 chocolate coated caramel candies (IE Rolos)
  • course sea salt

  • Directions
    1. Cream together butter and sugars with a handheld mixer on medium.  Slowly add in vanilla and egg.
    2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate large bowl.  Add the wet ingredients slowly, mixing between additions.  Stir in milk and fold in dark chocolate chips.  This makes a very thick and sticky dough.
    3. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours. 
    4. Scoop out 2 one tbs sized balls of dough.  Sandwhich a caramel candy between these balls to form one ball.  Make sure the edges of the caramel candies are completely sealed.
    5. Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp sea salt on each cookie
    6. Bake in preheated oven at 350* degrees for 10-13 minutes.  Cookies will be soft, allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transfering to wire rack.
    7. Pour a glass of milk and enjoy! These guys are rich!
