  • Egg: Binds the ingredients and provides structure.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the flavor profile.
  • All-Purpose Flour: Forms the backbone of the cookie dough.
  • Diamond Crystal® Fine Sea Salt: Balances the sweetness and enhances the caramel flavor.
  • Baking Soda and Baking Powder: Leavening agents that help the cookies rise.
  • Confectioners’ Sugar: Used for rolling out the dough to prevent sticking.

  • Ganache: A simple mix of semisweet chocolate chips and heavy cream, creating a smooth, decadent layer.

How to Make Salted Caramel Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

  1. Prepare the dough: Cream together the butter and granulated sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract, beating until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sea salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Divide the dough into two balls, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven: Set your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Roll out the dough: On a sheet of waxed paper sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar, roll out each dough ball to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a small 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter to cut out circles or shapes. Place the cutouts on the prepared baking sheet. If the dough becomes too soft, refrigerate it again briefly.
  4. Bake: Bake the cookies for 5 to 7 minutes. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Prepare the fillings: For the salted caramel filling, place the unwrapped caramels, sea salt, and heavy cream in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the caramels are melted and smooth. For the ganache, microwave the heavy cream in a measuring cup until it begins to bubble. Add the chocolate chips and let the mixture rest for 2 minutes before stirring until smooth.
  6. Assemble the cookies: Spread 1/2 teaspoon of salted caramel and 1/2 teaspoon of chocolate ganache on the bottom side of half the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies to form sandwiches.

FAQs about Salted Caramel Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Can I use a different type of salt?

Yes, but Diamond Crystal® Fine Sea Salt is recommended for its purity and flavor. If using a different brand or type, adjust the quantity to taste.

Can I make the dough ahead of time?

Absolutely! The dough can be prepared and refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Let it come to room temperature before rolling out and baking.

Why is my dough too soft to work with?

If the dough becomes too soft, simply return it to the refrigerator for a short time to firm up. This will make it easier to roll out and cut into shapes.

Can I add other flavors to the ganache?

Certainly! You can infuse the ganache with a hint of coffee or a splash of your favorite liqueur for a unique twist.
