Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies

March 29, 2020

Love cookies? Fancy to taking chocolate chip cookies to a new level? Wait until you try these Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

I have two flavours that I love a lot. Classic chocolate chip cookies and anything salted caramel. I didn’t think anything could get better than these two flavours. That is until I thought to make them together. What better way to bring these flavours all in one cookie?

These cookies are simply perfection. Using caramel chips and chocolate chunks, these cookies are easy to make. There are no complicated steps that make it difficult to make. These cookies are great for any occasion. Whether it is for Christmas, a get-together or just as a special treat. I think, once you taste how amazing these cookies are, you find all kinds of reasons to make them again and again. 

How to Store Cookies?

When you make cookies at home, these cookies will not last as long as store-bought cookies. You want to make sure you store them properly. When you store homemade cookies, you want to make sure they are in an airtight container or freezer bag at room temperature. If cookies are not stored this way, they will get stale.

How Long do Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies Last?

These cookies will last 5-7 days if they are stored properly. If the cookies start to get stale and hard, you can microwave them for about 10-20 seconds depending on how strong the microwave is. Do not overheat as this will leave them hard again. 

Once you have tried these soft salted caramel chocolate chunk cookies you are going to wonder where they have been your whole life.
