Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

How do you stuff chocolate chip cookies?

The easiest way to “stuff” these cookies is to use a cookie scoop. Place one scoop on the cookie sheet, place the caramel on top, and then put another scoop of dough on top. Lightly smoosh the two together and that’s it! Since you are using two scoops of dough, these are a bigger cookie!

Stuffing the cookie makes it sound way fancier than it is, but it is a really easy technique that elevates this cookie from just a plain ol’ chocolate chip cookie! If you can use a cookie scoop, you can make this easy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
