Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Caramel Bits
  • Sea salt for sprinkling on cookies

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, cornstarch, baking soda and sea salt together. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and caramel bits. Form cookie dough into tablespoon balls and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.
  • Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
  • Note-I buy the Kraft Caramel Bits at Target. If you can't find Kraft Caramel Bits, you can use caramel squares. Just chop them up into pieces.
