Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope you all had a great day, full of love and your loved ones. And....

I mean, who doesn't love cookies? 

These cookies are so incredibly good!! You really must try them. They are chocolaty, and have just the slightest hint of caramel, which makes it different from a normal chocolate chip cookie.

Don't the look downright beautiful?

Yes, I want to get as much photos of these cookies in this post as possible! They're worth it, trust me.

Well, now I'll leave you with the recipe of these amazing cookies. Happy Valentine's Day!

Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
6-8 oz dark chocolate, chopped

In a small saucepan add the butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Watch carefully as you don’t want to scorch the sugar.
Let this mixture cool slightly then add to a large mixing bowl and continue to cool for 20 minutes. Once cooled add the eggs and vanilla then stir to combine. Stir in the salt, flour and baking powder. With a few streaks of flour remaining add the chocolate. If the mixture is still warm some bits of the chocolate may melt. A little bit of melting is fine and sort of wonderful.
Place the bowl in the fridge and let chill for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat your oven to 350*
Line a sheet tray with parchment and set aside.
Scoop the batter into tablespoon-size rounds and place on the sheet tray. Bake for 12 minutes until golden around the rims. Let the cookies cool on the tray for five minutes while they settle into themselves creating a crackly crust.
Finish cooling on a wire rack.
