Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies - Non Vegan


I'll admit this straight away - before I made these cookies I had never tried anything salted caramel related. The craze for making salted caramel goodies has been around for a while now (okay a few years, I've been missing out) and I decided it was finally time for me to take the plunge and attempt my own salted caramel creation!

These cookies were up there in the top 5 cookies that I've tasted - I had no idea how much I have been missing out on! They also set a record for the fastest time they were eaten - they really were that good!
