Except for the caramel bits, I had everything on hand, and what's not to love about that?
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
1 cup caramel bits
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pretzels
sea salt (to sprinkle on top) optional
In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla, stir together.
Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
Stir in chocolate chips, caramel and pretzels.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Scoop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. (This is optional - it does make them extra salty, so keep that in mind.)
Bake 8-10 minutes or until just starting to brown. Let cookies sit on pan for about 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack.
