I haven’t done this in so long, I almost forgot how to. I found this recipe on a great blog called Take a Bite blog. http://www.takeabiteblog.com/blog/2017/8/14/perfect-cccs-updated. They were so good, I have to share them. I have made some minor changes. They had too much chocolate for my husband, weird, I know, but I kind of thought so too. So I took a little out, added some caramel bits and changed up the sugars. But the base recipe is amazing. It has olive oil in it so I guess you MIGHT say they are a little healthier. They do stay fresh longer and the Maldon salt on top can be ordered off Amazon or you can just use Kosher salt. Maldon is just a little flakier, same taste.
I have some great pictures to go along with this post but for some reason the computer won’t let me upload them. I will add them later since so many of you have requested this recipe. I’m sure since you just ate one, you know what they look like.
1/2 cup butter (I recommend Land O Lakes salted) Melted
1/2 cup olive oil (any old kind will do)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup Nestles semi sweet chocolate chips
1 Hershey bar, chopped into chunks
1 cup Kraft caramel bits
Maldon salt, or Kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bow, whisk together the dry ingredients, flour, soda, salt, powder. Set aside. In a larger bowl, whisk together the melted butte, and olive oil. Whisk eggs in one at a time. Stir in vanilla. With a wooden spoon, slowly add the dry mixture to the wet. Mix well then add the chocolate chips, Hershey bar chunks and caramel bits.
Form into 2-3 Tbsp balls. I used a cookie scoop. Place the on the cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with the heel of your hand. Sprinkle with Maldon salt or Kosher salt.
Bake for 9 min. Don’t over bake. They do not get very brown on top. They will be lightly brown around the edges.
Makes about 30 cookies.
