I made today’s sweet & salty cookie dough treats on a whim last week.  I had just finished shooting my Cookie Dough Lovers Ice Cream Pie, and I just had to another cookie dough treat.  I mean who doesn’t love cookie dough? Sticking your fingers into that forbidden mixing bowl for a “taste.” Then another taste, and again and again.

We’re all addicted to cookie dough, I just know it.

These little decadent gems are the brainchild of these cookie dough truffle pops and these chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel bites. So yeah, these cookie dough pretzel bites are pretty amazing.

All you have to do is make a batch of cookie dough. Replace the egg with cream or milk. Roll the dough into a ton of balls, about 2 teaspoons of dough per ball. Try to resist taste testing the cookie dough. I dare you!

Freeze the cookie dough/pretzels before dipping into the chocolate. Chilling them for about 20 minutes makes them MUCH easier to handle when you are dunking them in the chocolate. Otherwise, the cookie dough will separate from the pretzels and fall apart.

Chill, chill, chill the pretzels/dough! Don’t miss this important step.

Time for some chocolate. Because the only thing to make cookie dough better is… more chocolate.

Yeah, these decadent cookie dough bites will practically make you speechless. I love that they are no-bake. And ready in under 45 minutes.  Dangerously amazing!

Safe-to-eat cookie dough stuffed between two salty pretzels and dunked into chocolate. Addicting!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 40-50 pretzels
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, such as Ghirardelli
  • 1 teaspoon shortening, optional

Directions:

  1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together on medium speed until light and creamy. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Turn the mixer off and add the flour and salt. Mix on low speed at first, then turn the mixer up to medium speed and mix until combined. The dough will be thick and crumbly, just keep mixing until it comes together. Mix in mini chocolate chips.
  3. Roll the dough into balls, about 2 teaspoons of dough per sandwich. The amount of dough per sandwich may vary; it depends how thick you want each dough filling. Sandwich balls between two pretzels and place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  4. While the pretzel bites are chilling, break up the chocolate and melt with the shortening for about 1 minute in mircrowave, stirring every 20 seconds. The shortening is used to thin the chocolate out. Dip the pretzel bites halfway into the melted chocolate and place bites back on baking sheet. Refrigerate the dipped bites for at least 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Cover and store pretzel bites in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    We made these twice in a week  – once for a bridal shower sweet table (rave reviews,) and another time just because they are so delicious and easy.  Great no-bake treats  for warm weather

    So, I didn’t have time for dipping, but the cookie dough, alone, was fabulous.  My daughter keeps begging me to buy the egg-less cookie dough featured on Shark Tank; Harris Teeter sells it for $7.  This is much cheaper and totally delicious!  I plan to freeze it and use it in my cookie dough cupcake recipe next.

    Do you need the brown sugar for the dough or can you skip it?

      I’ve started making my own brown sugar! I kept running out of it, so I looked up its ingredients to find a more efficient way. All it has in it is white granulated sugar and molasses. One TBS molasses to every cup of sugar. Let it mix in a mixer for about 5 minutes. 

      My personal preference is that a chocolate chip cookie without brown sugar simply is not a chocolate chip cookie. In some of her other posts, Sally talks about the brown sugar having to do with the texture of the dough. However, I suppose that doesn’t really matter here.

    Love this receipe and have mad it twice now.  But on my second try I mad a second batch and for some reason the dough came out darker.  Any idea why?   I used the exact receipe both times.

    Wow, you’re right, raw cookie dough is just my kryptonite! I feel like these would be awesome a choc chip cookies with a pretzel pressed into the top before baking and dipped into chocolate afterwards!

    I’m think I’m going to add a sprinkle of crushed candy cane on top of the melted chocolate and add them to my Christmas Cookie plates! Yum!
