Dark Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Cookies (ourlittleeverything)

1 1/4 c butter softened
2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
2 c flour
3/4 c unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 c dark chocolate chips
1/2 c soft caramel candies chopped
kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter and sugar together in a mixer on medium speed. Add eggs one at a time, then the vanilla. In a separate medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, dark cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the mix to the wet ingredients in the mixer until well combined. Roll the dough into 1″ balls and press some chips and caramel pieces into the top. This method works best for this particular recipe – as these are thin cookies and you don’t want the caramel melting through them. Place dough balls 2″ apart, as cookies will spread while baking. Bake for 8 – 10 min. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt onto each cookie and LET COOL before removing from the baking sheet. Makes about 48 cookies.
