SALTED CHOCOLATE CARAMEL COOKIES

This recipe comes from the caramel chips package. I'm going to do something I've never done before. I'm going to "undo" my recommendation for these cookies. At first bite I thought they were pretty good, but after having a couple more and after hearing others' reactions to them, I've changed my mind. The salt content was too much, at least for me and my family. It completely overpowered the sweetness. If I ever make them again, I will omit the salted caramel chips and the sea salt. That way they would just be plain chocolate cookies. I'm sorry if I've caused anybody a bad experience.
