Caramelized Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are unlike anything you’ve ever tried before! They’re crunchy, super thin, and have crisp, chewy edges that taste like candy!

How To Make the Perfect Caramelized Cookies

The key to achieving those perfect caramelized edges and thin cookies lies in the ratio of ingredients.

If you review the ingredient list included in the recipe, there’s nothing new to notice: sugar, butter, eggs, flour, and so on.

But the amount of these elements will ensure that the cookies are well-distributed and have a caramelized, candy-like edge. They also have an excellent soft center.


The key to the perfect cookies for this recipe is to have a high butter-to-flour ratio.

This doesn’t mean that this recipe requires more butter than other recipes; it simply means it has more butter compared to flour in weight.


For caramelized cookies, you’ll need more sugar than normal. These cookies are made of two types of sugar: brown and white.

This recipe chose to use similar proportions of brown sugar to white sugar.

Baking soda

The baking soda that is present in this recipe encourages two aspects of this cookie:

  • Spreads outward, which keeps the cookies crispy and thin.
  • Helps to prevent the browning of the cookies.

Chilled cookies give them a little firmness, so they bake for a while before spreading.

Additionally, refrigerating the cookies can help the flour get hydrated and baking soda better spread it.

It is only necessary to chill your dough for 30 minutes, not for a couple of hours or a few days. This is because we need to encourage spread in this recipe and the caramelized taste is less noticeable if the dough is not properly chilled.

Can I bake cookies without parchment Paper?

I never bake cookies without parchment paper because I am adamant about not scraping bits of caramelized cookies off the baking sheet.

However, if you wish to have cookies that have crisp, crispy, and crunchy bottoms, it is possible to bake them using parchment.

Paper made of parchment is great for baking. However, it can retain some moisture.

Simply prepare your baking sheet using butter for baking the cookies without the parchment paper.
