Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Servings: 12


  • 1 package (468g) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) salted caramel sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (for garnish, optional)


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the cookie dough package (usually around 175°C).

Step 2: Prepare the Muffin Tin

  1. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line it with cupcake liners.

Step 3: Create Cookie Cups

  1. Take the refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough and divide it into 12 equal portions.
  2. Roll each portion into a ball and press it into the bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup, forming a well or cup shape.

Step 4: Bake

  1. Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake the cookie cups according to the package instructions. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes, or until the cookie cups are lightly golden.

Step 5: Add Caramel

  1. Remove the cookie cups from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes.
  2. Carefully remove the cookie cups from the muffin tin and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 6: Fill with Salted Caramel

  1. Once the cookie cups are completely cool, fill each cup with salted caramel sauce. You can microwave the caramel sauce for a few seconds to make it easier to pour.

Step 7: Garnish

  1. If desired, sprinkle a small pinch of sea salt on top of each caramel-filled cookie cup for that classic salted caramel flavour.
