Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies


the ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

6-8 oz dark chocolate, chopped

 what to do

In a small saucepan add the butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Watch it closely so the sugar doesn’t burn. Let this mixture cool slightly then add to a large mixing bowl and cool an additional 20 minutes. Once cooled add the eggs and vanilla then combine. Stir in the salt, flour and baking powder. With a few streaks of flour remaining, add the chocolate. If the mixture is still warm some of the chocolate may melt. A little bit of melting is fine and kind of fanfreakingtastic.

Place the bowl in the fridge and let chill for 30 minutes.

Pre-heat your oven to 350°. Line a sheet tray with parchment and set aside.

Scoop the batter into tablespoon-size rounds and place on the sheet tray. Bake for 12 minutes until golden around the rims. Let the cookies cool on the tray for five minutes while they settle into themselves creating a crackly crust.

Finish cooling on a wire rack.
