Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Yield: 42


Chocolate lovers will adore these soft and delicious caramel chocolate chip cookies. They are simply irresistible when fresh from the oven and still warm!


  • 2/3 cup of softened butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream (I used reduced fat sour cream)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of dark (semi sweet) chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of caramel chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl using an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  3. Add the sour cream, egg, and vanilla and then beat again until well combined.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl and mix to blend all dry ingredients together.
  5. While beating with the electric mixer, slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and beat until no dry ingredients can be seen (scraping down the sides of the bowl where necessary).
  6. Add the chocolate and caramel chips and fold them into the dough using a wooden spoon.
  7. Drop heaped teaspoonfuls of dough onto a lined or greased baking tray, leave 1 ½ inches between each cookie to allow for spreading.
  8. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
