Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

Friday, November 23, 2012

Hello and thanks for stopping by on this busy Black Friday. I don't live in the states, but many of our retailers here in Canada are taking part of this Black Friday mayhem and having deals of their own. So I will be stopping in our local mall and taking a peek to see what they have after work! Also, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I made these cookies this week since we are all out of sweets in the house. It is not the first time I made them, nor will it be the last. I love the combination of sweet and salty in this cookie! Just perfection! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Chocolate Pretzel Cookies
Prep time: 10 min        Cook Time: 8-10 min           Yield: 24-30 cookies

- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup large flake oats
- 1 tsp baking soda

- Pinch of salt 
- 1 cup pretzels, broken into pieces
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup rice krispies cereal

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, cream together butter and both sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, coconut, oats, baking soda, and salt. Stir well. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon until combined. Add pretzel pieces, chocolate chips and rice krispies cereal until combined.
3. Drop teaspoonfuls of cookie dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Space out cookies 2-inches apart.
4. Bake in the center of the oven for 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 10 minutes for crispier cookies. Cool cookies on wire racks before eating!

Instead of chocolate chips, use chocolate pieces for "chocolate chunk" cookies.
For a nuttier take on these cookies, add peanut butter chips.
For a different take, add crushed chocolate covered pretzels. But make sure to reduce either the amount of chocolate chips or sugar from the recipe, or it will be too sweet!
