Chocolate Caramel Cookies with Sea Salt

These cookies are ridiculous! Crazy Insane Ridiculous!

They are super chocolaty and gooey and that little bit of salt, WOW!

If you are looking to make amends for something, make these. They will make up for anything!!

What you need,

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
5 tbsp butter
7 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
Soft caramel, rolled into little balls
Sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with silpat mats.

Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl.

In a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt the butter. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder and both sugars. Add in the yogurt and vanilla, stirring to combine. Mix into the flour mixture stirring until moist. Wrap a scoop of the dough around one of the little caramel balls. Place on the baking sheet and sprinkle a little sea salt.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until almost set. Cool on the pan for 2-3 minutes or until slightly firm. If you take them off the pan too soon all the caramel leaks out!

Remove cookies to a rack and let them cool completely.

These cookies are best warm they are like little molten lava cakes of deliciousness!

I don't know what else to say, except MAKE THEM! You will not regret it, or you might if you eat 6 like I did. I need to go to the gym now.
