Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup hot caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups lightly salted cashews, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Gradually beat in eggs, caramel topping and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in 1-1/3 cups chocolate chips and 3/4 cup cashews.
  2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges are firm, 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
