Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies are loaded with decadent chocolate chips and crushed pretzels for a delicious, chewy, sweet-and-salty treat!
Something inexplicable has happened to my tastebuds in the last six months or so. The girl who has always had a GIANT sweet tooth has started craving salty snacks instead. Traditionally, I’ve always reached for chocolate or ice cream as soon as the kids are safely in bed…but lately, I’d much rather have barbecue potato chips. And half a bag, at that.
So when I had a hankering for chocolate chip cookies the other day, I knew I wanted to bring in a salty element. I could always sprinkle regular cookies with sea salt, of course. But upon spying an unopened bag of pretzels in the pantry, I decided that the addition of salt and crunch would be even better!
And boy was I right. Y’all. Shorty after these photos were taken, there were about half a dozen less cookies to be accounted for. And I hadn’t even shared with the kids yet! Seriously…someone needs an intervention.
What makes these Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies so fabulous is the contrast of flavors and textures. You’ve got soft, chewy cookies studded with creamy chocolate and crunchy pretzels. You’ve got salty plus sweet. The combination is magical.
And to make things even better, these cookies are a cinch to make and can be oven-ready in a matter of minutes!
Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies, my friends, are the answer…whether you have a sweet tooth or need a salty fix. They are plump, textured, bursting with chocolate, loaded with pretzels, and completely addictive. In fact, that last part is probably their only downfall.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I better start whipping up a second batch to replace the embarrassing number of cookies already missing from the first batch… 😉
More yummy cookies…
