Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.  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

2 eggs

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.
