  • 1⅔ cups (208g) cake flour
  • 1⅔ cups (208g) bread flour
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • teaspoon coarse salt
  • cups (2½ sticks or 284g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • cups (225g) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 24 caramel candies, unwrapped and shaped into balls
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy (3 to 5 minutes).
  • Reduce speed and add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips by hand.
  • Drop spoonfuls (2-3 tablespoons) of dough onto a baking sheet.
  • Place caramel in center and form dough around the caramel candy. Place back on the baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle cookies with salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Serve warm. If the cookies have cooled completely, warm them up in the microwave for 15 seconds to soften the caramel.
