Salted Caramel Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies [1]

Oh my gosh I couldn’t stop eating these cookies! I gave a few to my mom and I was going to give the rest away too, but then… I opened the container they were in to have just one … and then I was like I’ll just have one more … and then there were just too few to give to anyone. Whoops. (wink) … So I kept the rest all for myself.

Chocolate Wafers [3]

But these jumbo chocolate wafers [4] are what make them so irresistible. I love baking cookies with them. It means melty chocolate in every warm little … or big bite.

Mix up the dough, scoop it onto baking sheets and then… sprinkle the tops with a little sea salt to finish them off.
