Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 baking sheets with a non-stick baking mat.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until creamy and smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda until combined, then add it to the butter/sugar mixture. Mix on low until the ingredients are well combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips and caramel candies and carefully mix by hand, making sure all the chips are evenly dispersed. Do not use your electric mixer for this or the chocolate chips may melt and look gross!
Using an ice cream scoop, drop 12 round balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. The cookie dough balls should be big- about the size of a golf ball. Do not flatten- leave them nice and round.
Gently press 3-4 chocolate chips and caramel candies into the top of each cookie dough ball. This makes the tops of your cookies look pretty once they are done baking.
Bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will look undercooked- this is normal! Pull them out of the oven and let them continue to cook on the cookie sheets as they cool.
Pour a glass of milk, call me over, and enjoy!!! 😉
