I am sharing with you ANOTHER
Cookie Recipe
Yes the Pregnancy Cravings have kicked in and today I decided to be naughty
And give into them.  
But these are not your average Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They are the {Perfect} Combination of Salty & Sweet.
I betcha can’t eat just one ;0)
Go HERE to find my recipe!
To make these cookies, I discovered these Caramel Bits by KRAFT a few years ago.
They are perfect for cookie baking and caramel dipping.
Or throwing on top of your favorite flavor of ice cream. 
I have seen them in several grocery stores in the baking isle.
Nixon couldn’t have said it better himself.
“These cookies are Dee-wish-us!!!!”
And aren’t going to last very long in this house!
I’ll be sharing them here this week:

Tatertots & Jello
Just a Girl

    Can barely read your recipe in that light neon blue color, against the white wall. Sounds yummy.

  32. Adding pretzels is a great idea!

  33. Anonymous says:

    Sounds delish! Wondering why you use corn starch? Can you enlighten me? I am a frequent baker, but haven’t run across that ingredient in a cookie before.

    AWESOME cookie. I’ve tried making these twice. A few tips to those who have not yet tried: caramel bits are crazy hard to find. I substituted butterscotch on the first round. Ehhh. I was also wanting more pretzels. So, this second round I doubled the pretzels and substituted peanut butter chips for the caramel bits. Wow. Amazing. Definitely set your timer for four to five minutes to take the cookies off of the pan and onto the cooling sheet — any less and too gooey, any more and they stick to the pan. Still looking for those caramel bits — betting they are really freakin’ good.

  35. I tried these but I used store bought cookie dough and added sea salt to the top. They turned out so good!

    here’s the link:

    Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  36. I just want you to know I’ve made these SO many times since I found you on pinterest. I’ve shared the recipe with all my friends and they make them, too! I came back to check the recipe before heading to the store again today–THANK YOU!!!

    For those of you looking for the Caramel Bits, try the CANDY section, that is where my grocer stocks them. Also, I understand that Target carries them.

    Still wondering, Dave’s Wife, about the cornstarch, per my comment on 3.24. Thanks so much!

    • Anonymous, GREAT tip on where to find the Caramel Bits! I typically reply to comments & questions via email :0) However, the Cornstarch was an ingredient that my grandma used in her cookie recipes to make them softer. Hope this helps!

  38. Just tried these today after finding them on Pinterest. The cookie was tasty but the caramel bits hardened back up after the cookies cooled. They were great while still hot, but almost hard to chew after they were cooled. I baked them for a few seconds less than 8 minutes (my oven cooks a little hot) and timed the pan cooling at about 4 minutes. Wondering what went wrong since everyone else is raving about them.

    • Great Question on the Caramel Bits! I have never had a problem with mine getting too hard. I have made these cookies so many times, I have lost count, and never had that problem. My only guess would be that the bag you purchased were a little old?

  39. These look delightful, and I am totally using the fact that I am pregnant to justify eating about 12 once I get the chance to make them. 🙂

    I can’t find Caramel Bits anywhere 🙁 I bought a bag of caramels and plan to cut them up. Won’t be as small for sure, but do you think it would work? Would I need more than a cup? Making them in the morning. Thanks!

  41. Anonymous says:

    We found the caramel bits at Target in the baking goods aisle. Making them tonight and can’t wait!!!!

    Can you use regular butter but omit the salt?

  43. Made these cookies the other night and had to take them to work so I wouldn’t eat the entire batch single handedly. They came out very well.
    Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

  44. Anonymous says:

    Going to make these today !!:)

  45. Made these and did not use caramel bits as we don’t have them in Canada. The cookies still turned out unbelievable!

  46. Yummy 😀 same issue with caramel bits, cant find them 🙁

  47. WOW! I love them! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

  48. cookies are good aftertea food!!! haha click u will find u need or like!!!

  49. I baked these cookies today and mine were a bit dry and I used semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips so the cookies weren’t very sweet. Will definitely try again because I love the combination of caramel and chocolate.

  50. Hands down the best cookie EVER! Just make a batch for PTA and now dragging everything back out to make some for home! AMAZING!!! I did not change one thing… baked for 9 min…perfect!

  51. Why did my cookies come out so flat??:(:( I’m stumped!:(

    • Late reply but did you use Baking Soda or Baking Powder? I used a scoop for my cookies and they turned out better than the ones I rolled. The rolled ones look smoother, but the scooped ones are taller (not flat). Try again with a new box of Arm and Hammer (and double check the date on your flour, too).

  52. These look and sound amazing! I’m going to make them tonight for our holiday cookie exchange/contest at work. One question though, did you use salted pretzels or unsalted?

    Thanks for posting!

  53. sorry one other question, about how many cookies does the above recipe make?

    Thanks again!

  54. Made these yesterday to take to a cookie exchange; good thing I doubled the recipe, or else there wouldn’t be any left! (Only change: chopped up caramel squares b/c my grocery store doesn’t carry caramel bits.)

    Sweet&salty perfection!

    • How many did you get out of a recipe or double recipe? I’m planning to make these for a cookie exchange and want to make sure I have enough to make what I need. Thank you for your response.

  55. I was able to get 4 dozen out of 1 batch. I used a regular cookie scoop. This question has been posed a few times, I haven’t seen any answers so thought I would share what I was able to get. 🙂 They are great, I’m using for a cookie exchange, I think everyone will like them!

  56. I just made these and they are AWESOME. The crunch and saltiness off the pretzel(and the extra sprinkle of salt on top) just made these delish. The caramel bits add that yummy chewiness throughout the cookie. The only thing I did with the second batch was to press the cookie down a bit before I baked because the first batch didn’t really spread out much. I will absolutely make these again! AND they are super easy! Thanks for the recipe.

    • and i’ll also add that, if you live in Texas, H-E-B carries the caramel bits. i thought i was gonna have trouble finding them since others have, but they were right there with the rest of the baking stuff.

  57. Our markets only carry the caramel bits at Christmas time, so I substituted a few tubes of Starbucks caramel coffee balls. It was perfect!! But expensive, so I think come Dec I’ll be stocking up on them! The treats are amazing–my husband raved and said they taste like something you buy at the mall cookie shops!

  58. ok, I need help. I baked these today and they came out awful!!! well, they tasted good but they were stuck to the cookie sheet! I made the recipe as follows but added an extra egg since I used farm eggs and they are smaller and the dough seemed very dry with only one.
    So I baked the first batch for about 10 min(checking every couple min after 5) until the edges were slightly golden…but the carmel was liquified at this point. So I pulled them out let them cool for about 4 min and tried taking them off the sheet…it was an absolute disaster. I think i got about 4 salvageable cookies out of a dozen. So the next batch i baked for less time to no avail. The third batch I tried spraying pam on the cookie sheet.
    Each time, the caramel liquified and then stuck to the sheet. I will note that I used werther’s soft caramel pieces and then hand cut them.
    I would like to make a batch to send to my husband in Afghanistan, but i think im doing something wrong! help!

  59. So I’ve made these cookies a couple times now and was thinking of making them for a dessert auction coming up. I knew I wanted to make some cookies, but I hadn’t decided which ones for sure. Then I remembered something about the dessert auction last year and one of the items that went for a lot was chocolate covered bacon. So tonight, I made a batch of these cookies with two changes. I made the dough and added the chocolate chips (I use minis) and caramels. I took about half of it and rolled crispy bacon into the balls and then topped each ball with a small piece of bacon. I created caramel bacon chocolate chip cookies! But that’s what I did to only half of it. To the other half, I decided I wanted to try something a bit different and add in some peanut butter (I absolutely love peanut butter!) along with the crushed pretzels. I didn’t add a lot of peanut butter, about a 1/4 cup (I wasn’t measuring, just spooning it in), but the flavor difference is amazing! These caramel pretzel peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are a bit more earthy and aren’t as sweet or salty as the usual ones. I’ve already had 3 since they came out of the oven and I’m trying to hold back so my husband can try one without dipping into what I’m taking for the dessert auction. I’m definitely going to have to get around to actually blogging about the recipes I find and make sure and get this one in there. I’ll definitely get you linked in once I get around to it. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  60. I just made these for the second time and O-M-G they are to die for!! I’m taking this batch to my college kid. I may have to put them in the trunk so they make the 4 1/2 hour road trip! They are that good! My only change was simi-sweet chocolate and just because I like dark chocolate better than milk. Thanks so much for my new favorite cookies!!! 🙂

  61. We LOVE these cookies, but I struggle with them every time I make them. The dough ends up being SO incredibly thick that I have to use my hands. It’s like working with bread dough – I actually have to kneed it to get the chips/pretzels to mix in. Then when I use my cookie scoop, they don’t flatten out at all. I have to flatten them either mid-baking or before I throw them in the oven. The baking time for me is almost double what is listed in the recipe. So, while we love these when they are done, the recipe doesn’t exactly jive with my results.

  62. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let
    me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

  63. Normally I do not read post on blogs, however I wish to say
    that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me.

    make your blog a little livelier.
