Recipe - Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies

As it's the festive season i wanted to put together a bag of treats for my group of friends. I scrolled and scrolled through tons of pinterest recipes and eventually landed on a cookie recipe which i adapted and changed to make these delicious salted caramel chocolate chunk cookies!


Recipe 
  • 150g unsalted butter, softened 
  • 80g light brown muscovado sugar 
  • 80g granulated sugar 
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg 
  • 225g plain flour 
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 200g lindt chocolate - caramel with a hint of sea salt chocolate 
Method
  1. Preheat your oven to 190C or 170C for fan & line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper
  2. Soften the butter and then beat slowly adding both sugars and beat together until creamy. Once this is creamy add the vanilla extract and then the egg
  3. Sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda over the mixture and then mix together with a wooden spoon!
  4. I decided to use lindt chocolate instead of plain and mine was caramel with a hint of sea salt, you could use any of the lindt chocolates (they have some awesome flavours!) I then cut these into chunks.. i left my chunks quite large as thats how i like them but you can cut these too any size you wish! Once your chunks are ready add these to your mixture and continue to mix using a wooden spoon
  5. Using your hands place small mounds of the mixture well apart on baking trays. To ensure they didn't turn into one giant cookie i actually did 6 on a baking tray at once
  6. Bake these in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes until light brown on the edges and still soft in the centre.. then leave these on the tray to firm for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack! 
As these where a little gift to some of my closest friends i popped them into bags, did them up with ribbon and put a tag on them to finish them off!


The tags and ribbon where from Asda and where £1.00 for 10 tags and £1.00 for 5m of ribbon! I think there so cute and the perfect little treat bag to give out to loved ones during the festive holiday!

Let me know if you bake these and if you enjoyed them as much as  i did!

Happy Christmas!

    1. I'm addicted to salted caramel, I'm definitely going to have to make these! It's a lovely gift idea too although I'd probably eat them all before I wrapped them up haha
