Mixing chocolate with something salty is a tasty combo! I made a batch of these Chocolate Chunk with Pretzel cookies and they are GOOD!
Chocolate Chunk Pretzel Cookies
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 package of Nestle Chocolate Chunks ( chocolate chips are fine too.)
2 cups of pretzels, broken into small pieces
Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix till incorporated with the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chunks and the pretzel till well mixed.
Drop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet and bake small cookies for 8 – 10 minutes. Bake larger “jumbo” sized cookies for 15 minutes until just brown around the edges.
The cookie dough alone is enough reason to make a batch of these. It’s almost, if not better than the finished product. :)
