Sea Salted Caramel Cookies

Soft caramels are wrapped around butterscotch flavored cookie dough and sprinkled with sea salt for a soft, sweet and salty cookie.

  • Yield: 15 servings ( Serving Size: 2 cookies )
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cook time:20 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup(s) butter softened
  • 3/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon(s) milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 package(s) butterscotch instant pudding mix (3.4 ounce)
  • 1 3/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 30 soft caramel candies unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) sea salt


1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla and milk; beat until mixed.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the baking soda, baking powder, pudding mix, and flour. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined.

4. Shape the cookie dough into one-inch balls. For each cookie, flatten one cookie dough ball in the palm of your hand; place a caramel candy in the center and wrap the cookie dough around the candy. Place cookies onto prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart; sprinkle with sea salt.

5. Bake 10 minutes or until the cookie edges are light golden brown. Sprinkle with additional sea salt immediately, if desired. Allow the cookies to cool 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks to cool completely.
