2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks butter (softened)
Â¾ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
Â¾ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks (chop your own, or use 1 12oz package of chocolate chips or chunks)
1-1Â½ cups caramel bits (I used Kraft Premium Caramel Bits.Â If using the wrapped square candies, they will need to be cut into small-ish pieces.)
Preheat oven to 375Âº
In a medium bowl mix together flour, salt, and baking soda.Â Set aside.
In large bowl cream together butter, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy.Â Add eggs one at a time, mixing until fully incorporated.Â Slowly add flour mixture, scraping sides as you go.
Stir in (by hand) chocolate chunks, and caramel pieces.
Spread mixture evenly into a 10X15in jelly roll pan.Â Bake at 375 Âº for 20-25 minutes.Â
Cool cookies in pan, on wire rack. Cut into squares.
Yield: 24 cookie bars (this may vary depending on how large or small you cut the bars)
Enjoy with a cold glass of milk or, my personal favorite,Â a cup of strong, hotÂ coffee! Yum.
