Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Caramel stuffed chocolate chunk cookies are quite possibly the best cookies ever made

As you know, I don’t typically post recipes on here immediately after I make them unless they’re INCREDIBLE and a MUST share.

Well, I made these cookies on Saturday and today is Wednesday so clearly this means these cookies fall into the “must share immediately” category :)

I love a super-soft cookie, like the ones you get in the school cafeteria, the Otis Spunkmeyer ones – where you’re like HOW did they make these cookies so soft? Or the ones you get from Chips Ahoy where they have the “bakery soft” kind in the red packaging? Yeah, these are just like those but HOMEMADE annnnnd they’re stuffed with a glorious caramel candy inside. Seriously, this cookie just doesn’t get any better. Oh, here’s the kicker. Bet you can’t guess what’s in these to make them super soft. CORNSTARCH! Crazy, huh? If you replace baking powder with cornstarch (1:1 so 1 tsp of baking powder = 1 tsp cornstarch), you’ll get super soft cookies!!
