Salted Caramel Chocolate Cookies

Anything salted caramel is scrumptious...especially when paired with chocolate!

You'll Need:

  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 36 caramel cups (or hershey caramel kisses)
  • fine sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Unwrap all the caramel cups or kisses and set aside.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and powdered sugar until fluffy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, salt and cinnamon.  Slowly add into the butter/sugar mixture until incorporated.  
  4. Roll about 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons of the mixture to form a ball and place onto cookie sheet.  Continue for the rest of the dough.  Bake for 5 minutes then remove from oven and gently press a candy in the center.  Place back into oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
