Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 12-18 cookies

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cookies Recipe


  • 1/2 C Butter, softened
  • 1/2 C turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 C organic flour
  • 2/3 C unsweetened baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 12-18 Rolo candies
  • Coarse Sea Salt for topping


  1. Combine butter and sugars in bowl of stand mixer. Blend 2-3 minutes or until thoroughly combined and texture is light and fluffy.
  2. Add egg and vanilla extract and blend until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Whisk briefly until mixture is thoroughly combined.
  4. Slowly add dry mixture into butter mixture at low to medium speed and blend until just combined. Alternate dry mixture with 1 Tbsp milk at a time.
  5. Form dough into large ball and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 F and remove dough from fridge.
  7. Form balls of dough into 1-1 1/2 inch rounds. Push one rolo into the center of each. Cover with another 1/2 inch ball and smooth edges to close completely.
  8. Bake 12 minutes, rotating the rack at 6.
  9. Let cool 5 minutes on rack when removed from oven. Change to cooling rack and let cool the rest of the way.

Using Organic Ingredients

We talked about the importance of raw sugar on our Absolutely Perfect Snickerdoodle Cookies, but what about other healthy ingredients?

I’m just about the last person who will get all preachy when it comes to how you do your baking. However, I do feel that when making something with this much chocolate and sweet stuff it is important to think about just how much processed food you are using vs. raw or organic food.

What’s the Deal with Organic Flour?

Just like with raw sugar organic flour is flour that hasn’t been messed around with as much as traditional all-purpose flour. There is less processing, bleaching, and other things that strip the flour of its original form and original nutrients.

Overall, the decision to use entirely organic, vegan, or raw ingredients is up to you. It is nearly impossible in these cookies with the Rolo candy used. However, just a few healthy changes here and there can really add up to a big impact on your health and well being.
