  • 2/3 cup salted butter browned and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour or gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 16 caramels cut in half
  • course sea salt for the top of the cookies


  • Brown the butter in a saucepan, and let cool until room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 375° and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter together for one minute. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. Add this to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined, then add the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the dough out into 1.5 tbsp sized balls. Press the caramels into the top of the cookies. Place the cookies on the baking sheet 2" apart and bake for 8-9 minutes.
  • Take the cookies out of the oven and bang the cookies on the counter. This will deflate the cookies. Sprinkle with the course sea salt to your liking. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
