  2. Don’t overmix the dough: Mix just until combined to avoid tough cookies.
  3. Use high-quality ingredients: Opt for top-notch chocolate chips, coconut flakes, and caramel for the best flavor.
  4. Watch the baking time: Keep an eye on them to avoid over-baking. They should be golden outside and soft inside.

Can I use unsalted butter instead? Yes, just add a bit more salt.
Can I freeze the dough? Absolutely, just add a few extra minutes to the bake time.
Can I switch ingredients? Customize with your favorite add-ins like nuts or dried fruits.
