Gluten Free Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

In my opinion any and every form of chocolate chip cookies are delicious, but these cookies outdo every other chocolate chip cookie out there. They are twice the size, soft and chewy, and filled with caramel. What could be better than that?

 The hidden caramel adds to the chewiness of those cookies, and it is one of the things makes these cookies extra special!

You can't go wrong when you decide to make a batch of these big, caramel filled cookies! Everyone will be sure to love them.
