Starbucks VIA With Your Cookie? Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who would have thought about adding Starbucks VIA to their cookies?

Me, of course!

And I thoroughly test a recipe before I bring it to you....

If you like a soft chewy cookie, lightly salted caramel taste, then you have got to make these cookies ASAP.

The taste test consisted of one slightly warm: The chocolate was still really melty and soft, but the caramel flavor was rich.

I found that this cookie is best when it is completely cool, chocolate hardened, and the cookie is chewy. Definitely a caramel texture.

But I ran into a problem while making these cookies. Please do not repeat this process......

While my mixer was running I dropped a half of an egg shell in the mixing bowl.
OMG!! I instantly forgot how to use a mixer and didn't know where the buttons were. While I was screaming, "STOP, STOP, STOP....", and desperately trying to find the "off" button, I made the mixer go faster....
Which means I broke up the egg shell even more. Thank God all I had in there was wet ingredients and sugars. I was able to fish out "MOST" of the egg shell. But please chew softly....

A very good cookie... minus the egg shell.

The inspiration for this cookie came from Framed Cooks. The original recipe can be found here.

Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (with Starbucks VIA)

1 c. butter (2 sticks)
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 TBS vanilla extract
1/4 c. caramel syrup (Hershey's original caramel sauce)
3 3/4 c. bread flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. Starbucks VIA ready brew caramel flavor coffee
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. chocolate chunks - Ghirardelli premium baking chips - 60% cacao
Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and caramel sauce until well combined.
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, salt, Starbucks VIA, baking soda) and whisk together. Add slowly to wet ingredients mixing until everything is combined. Mix in chocolate chunks.
Using a large cookie scoop (ice cream scoop will work) place on baking sheets. Using a fork, press cookie down in a crisscross fashion. Lightly sprinkle with salt before baking (yes, salt). Bake 10 - 12 minutes.
I know everyone's ovens are different, but mine took exactly 10 minutes. Leave the cookies sit on the cookie sheets for a couple minutes after taking them out of the oven. Move to cooling racks.
