These Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie bars have a gooey caramel center that is sandwiched between chewy chocolate chip cookie layers and topped with coarse sea salt for a sweet + salty combo!
Salted caramel… Why have I waited so long to get into it? It always kinda put me off, even though I love sweet + salty desserts, I’m not sure why. There are just some things that belong together, and sea salt + caramel is one of those things. These bars are chewy, rich and jam packed with lots of flavor.
These bars have my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for the cookie part and the filling is super gooey, creamy caramel. Talk about a match made in heaven!
When the bars are done in the oven, you sprinkle them with sea salt and then cut them up once they’re cooled completely. If you cut them any sooner, you’ll have a big mess on your hands. Not that I know anything about that..
