In medium bowl, stir flour, sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, and baking soda until soft dough forms. Add caramels, potato chips and chocolate chips; stir until well-mixed (dough will be thick).

Onto parchment-lined cookie sheets, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Upon removing, sprinkle lightly with sea salt.  

Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks to cool completely. Store covered at room temperature.
