Chocolate-dipped Pretzel Cookies

If you like a sweet & salty combo,
today's treat is RIGHT up your alley.


These crispy little cookies have a sweet batter 
infused with pretzel bits, dipped in velvety chocolate and sprinkled with Kosher salt.
Hello!?
What more could you need?

How about a little how-to:


Ingredients:
1 Cup (2 sticks) room temperature butter
3 Cups chopped pretzels (I used the thin sticks but any will do)
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Flour
2 Eggs

Chocolate for melting
Kosher (or other large flake) salt

Easy enough, right?

So let's get to this:

Preheat your oven to 350

First you want to beat your butter until it's light and fluffy


Add in half of your chopped pretzels 



and your powdered sugar


Until it's well combined.

Slowly add in the flour and eggs until everything is mixed together
adding the last portion of pretzels until just combined.


By rounded spoonful (or cookie scoop) drop your dough onto a prepared cookie pan


(The dough will not spread out much - so if you want a flat cookie,
 you'll have to press the dough down with the palm of your hand)

Put those suckers in your preheated oven for about 9 minutes
and then take them out to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.


Once they have cooled you can melt your chocolate


Then dip in half your cookie


and sprinkle with salt while the chocolate is still wet.


Once the chocolate has hardened, they're all yours!


Dig In!
