Stuffed Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sure it’s a mouthful to say but it’s also a mouthful of utter deliciousness. This cookie experience should be deemed illegal. You can’t help but feel naughty when you have melting chocolate smudged all over your fingers, gooey caramel dripping everywhere and cookie crumbs that won’t be brushed off absentmindedly this time. Nope. You’ll be lapping them up just like I did. The incredible complexity of this cookie blooms in multi-layered stages. First, there’s the nutty aromatic browned butter that marries fluffy brown sugar, imparting a slight smokiness that only molasses can do. Then, there’s the aging process where for 3 days, the cookies get to know each other on an intimate level {who knows what they’re doing in there when the lights go out}? πŸ˜‰ Finally, the 2-step process of the salted caramel alone could make for a decadent experience but two cookies come together to create a larger cookie, stuffed with hot caramel with tops flecked with glittering salt. Cookie foodgasm at its finest.
