Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a weakness for cookies.

I have a weakness for caramel too.

These cookies were a perfect fit for me.  I did save myself some but I sent most of them to my gramma for her 95th birthday.  We both have a huge sweet tooth and I think caramel is right at the top of the list.

The cookies were the perfect chocolate chip cookie, chewy and delicious.  Add caramel to the combination and you have a little bit of heaven.  I have definetly got to try to stuff caramels into more cookies. ;)
