Cookie Dough: Chop 1 pkg of Crispy M&M'S, set aside. In bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, beat butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy; beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Fold in chopped Crispy M&M'S. Cover dough with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes or until chilled.
Caramel: Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine sugar and 30 ml water over medium heat; cook, without stirring, until sugar starts to caramelize, swirling pan if sugar is browning unevenly. Pour in cream; stir until combined and bring to boil. Remove from heat. Stir in salt. Let cool completely.
Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. Spoon batter into 32 portions onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, about 2 inches apart; flatten top of each cookie with spoon. Bake on top and bottom racks of oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden on bottom.
Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes; transfer to rack and let cool completely.
Spread 2.5 ml caramel over half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Drizzle 2.5 ml of caramel over each cookie; sprinkle with pinch of salt. Top with remaining Crispy M&M'S.
- If caramel becomes too stiff, heat in microwave-safe bowl for 10 seconds at a time until pourable.
