¾ cup Challenge Salted Butter (200 grams), softened to room temperature
1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (213 grams)
½ cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ¾ cup all-purpose flour (330 grams)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (350 grams)
About 36 caramels , see Notes
Flaky sea salt , for sprinkling (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line sheet pans with parchment paper.
2.With an electric mixer beat butter, brown sugar, and sugar on high speed until pale, creamy, and mixture sticks to the sides of the pan, 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the bowl once or twice.
3.Add eggs one at a time, mixing and scraping down bowl after each. Mix in vanilla extract.
4.Add flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until just combined. Add chocolate chips.
5.Portion into rounded tablespoons (I use a #40 cookie scoop, 1 ½ tablespoon) and place on prepared sheet pan, about 8 cookies to a pan.
6.Press caramels into the center of each cookie round. Use your hands to push cookie dough completely over the caramel so it's covered and roll into a ball. Return to the cookie sheet.
7.Bake until tops just turn brown, 9-10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack too cool completely.
8.Repeat with remaining dough and caramels.
