Salted Caramel is all the rage lately! Here is a chocolate chip cookie that is updated with the sweet Milky Way Simply Caramel fun size candy bars and Sea Salt, of course!
Milky Way Simply Caramel Fun Size (3 of the Six Pack)
1t Baking Soda
1t Salt, Sea Salt Preferred
1.5c Unsalted Butter, Melted
2c Brown Sugar, Packed
1c Granulated Sugar
1T Vanilla Extract
2 Egg Yolks
3c Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Sift the flour with your salt and baking soda, set aside. In a mixer – Cream together the melted butter, brown and granulated sugar. Once incorporated, beat in the eggs, then vanilla. After the wet ingredients are combined, add in your dry ingredients. Mix until just combined and then add the chocolate chips, gently stir them in.
Cut the milky way candies in half (fun size bars), dip them into sea salt to seal the open caramel end. Take a ball of dough, just big enough to cover the half-mini-bar, add more dough if needed. Roll into a ball and sprinkle the top with more sea salt.
Bake at 325 degrees for 17 minutes with 12 cookies per sheet/pan. Let cool before transferring to a cooling rack.
