Introduction: Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Cookies

I love oatmeal cookies. I love chocolate. I love caramel. Why not combine all 3 into an amazing cookie? Well, I did.

I'll bet you won't be able to just have one :)

Step 1: The Ingredients

1 cup all purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher or sea salt

3/4 cup butter, soft at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 large egg at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal

dark chocolate broken into pieces, we’re talking good chocolate – Lindt, Ghirardelli, etc.

soft caramel candy (mine was store bought, though you could make your own), chopped into tiny pieces

Step 2: Make & Bake

1) Preheat your oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2) In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3) In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars until the mixture is creamy. Beat in the egg and vanilla followed by the flour mixture one scoop at a time. Stir in the oatmeal, chocolate and caramel candy, mixing just until well combined.

4) Shape dough into 1/2″ balls and arrange on baking sheet leaving about 2-inches between them to allow them to spread. Gently flatten each ball (so they are about half as high) with your fingertips.

5) Bake the cookies for approximately 12-15 minutes until they are are golden brown.

6) Allow the cookies to cool for 2ish minutes on the baking sheet, then gently place on a wire rack to cool completely.
