You’ll need all the classic chocolate chip cookie ingredients to make these caramel-stuffed chocolate chip cookies, like a stick of butter softened to room temperature, white and brown sugar, pure vanilla extract, an egg, flour, baking soda, and chocolate chips.

But you’ll also need two additional ingredients that really make these cookies stand out from the crowd — soft caramel candies and cornstarch.

How To Make Them

To make these caramel-stuffed cookies, start by creaming butter and both sugars with a paddle attachment. Add in a whole egg and vanilla extract. Fold in dry ingredients and chocolate chips. Chill the dough for at least an hour. This ensures a thicker cookies and actually allows the flavors to develop. Trust me it’s totally worth the effort!

Portion out the cookies and place them on a silicon baking mat. This recipe makes about 12-18 cookies, depending on the size. Place a caramel candy in the middle of the dough and make sure the caramel is completely covered. before baking. The result is an ooey, gooey caramel center that compliments the crispy, soft homemade chocolate chip cookie. Perfection!

Tips for Success

  • Cornstarch is added to make the cookie softer, chewy and provide extra thickness.
  • I substituted part of the sugar for brown sugar. Brown sugar is also used in the cookies to make them extra soft and chewy.
  • I chilled the dough for an hour for a full-flavored, thicker cookie. You could let the dough marinate as long as overnight in the fridge before baking.
