Double Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Nothing says decadent quite like double chocolate and caramel, right?! And decadent is precisely what these delicious double chocolate caramel cookies are! A dreamy combination of cocoa powder, mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sea salt caramel chips is everything a cookie should be.

I’ve found most double chocolate cookie recipes to be a bit on the dry side or favor a cakey-type texture neither of which are fabulous in my opinion. I wanted to make this cookie as thick and chewy as my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe and I think I’ve got it nailed down.

And like my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, this one requires no chill time. As I’ve said before…when I want a cookie, I want a cookie now! Ain’t no one got time to chill for 2-3 hours. So let’s start first by turning on the oven and creaming the butter and sugar!
