  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heavily grease a miniature muffin tin with baking spray.

  2. Cream together the butter with both sugars. Make sure the butter is a room temperature, but not at all melted.

  3. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time, then the salt, and then the vanilla.

  4. In another bowl combine the flour, pudding mix, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. Stir until combined.

  5. Add dry to wet and mix until just combined, making sure to scrape down the sides.

  6. If needed, add more flour until the mixture is able to be rolled without sticking to your hands.

  7. Roll small balls that fill up the muffin tin about ¾ full. Place the balls in the muffin tin.

  8. Remove the wrappers from the caramels and cut into either 2 or 4 sections. Press a caramel piece into the center of the cookie.

  9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

  10. Remove and press one caramel piece into the center of each cookie. Press a few chocolate chips around the caramel piece on the top

  11. Allow to cool for about 1 to 3 minutes. Remove the cookies and transfer to a cooling rack.

  12. Once the cookies are completely cooled, sprinkle on some salt and enjoy.
