As much as I love a chocolate chip cookie, last week I was in the mood to make a new cookie. With a lot of help from my kids, we came up with a kid-friendly, chocolate salted-caramel cookie.

My kids wanted to make presents for their grandparents for Christmas. Rather than buy a craft, we decided to use what we had and make them something meaningful and something they can use.
