Looking to step up your Cookie Swap game this year?! Well, look no further, because I have the perfect cookie for you. The Cookie Swap is BY FAR my favorite holiday tradition.

This cookie is so soft and chewy (which is my favorite kind of cookie) and the flavor is INSANE. Then you add the crunch of the chocolate chunks and the sweetness of the caramel – it’s GAME OVER.
