These cookies may look like any other cookie, but trust me they aren’t.  Chewy in the middle, firm on the outside are the familiar textures of a great chocolate chip cookie, but what makes these cookies different is the addition of sea salt and Salted Caramel Peanuts!

When I saw the can of the Planter’s Salted Caramel Peanuts on the shelf at the commissary, I knew they’d be the perfect addition to a chocolate chip cookie.  They add a delicious amount of salty sweetness and a bit of a crunch that turn these cookies up a notch.
