Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookies

 This recipe is dedicated to my friend Piyali who is the biggest fan of these cookies. I’ve just added a simple twist to my regular chocolate chip cookies by adding caramel bits to it. The better quality caramel you use, the yummier the cookies turn out – but good old butterscotch morsels from Nestle work just fine too.
