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.  Safe-to-eat, eggless cookie dough.  Replacing the egg is some 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!

Safe-to-eat cookie dough!

Press the cookie dough between two salty pretzels.

These cookie dough bites are the epitome of salty/sweet!

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.

Perfect.

Perfectly sweet, indulgent cookie dough stuffed between two salty pretzels and dunked into a bath of chocolate.  These are so sinful and you will NOT be able to stop at one.  My friend Erin came over and after tasting one, the only thing she could say is “oh my God.”

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!

Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites

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

Yield: 20 - 25 pretzel bites

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup 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
  • 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.

    Hi Sally! These cookie dough bites look great! Such a simple, yet fantastic idea. I also just want to say a quick “thank you” because I have been following your blog for a while and I really appreciate all the help you give others about blogging and especially your little mini series that you did “bites for growing your blog” which was extremely helpful. I recently took the plunge and made the switch to self hosted and am already loving it, even though I still have a lot left to work out with my blog. I was wondering if you would be able to tell me how you get you pictures to show up side by side and then put writing over them. Do you do all this in an outside collage program and then import it as one photo? Or can you somehow import them so that they show up side by side? Also, do you have any tutorials on your blog about saving/exporting photos with Lightroom? I bought it recently and have been shooting in RAW and really working on my photography which is great cause my pics are so much better, but they take up sooooo much space on my computer, and they’re taking a long time to load on my blog page so I must not be saving them as small as they need to be I guess. Any advice you have there would be really appreciated. Again, thanks for everything you do!!!

    Sally they look soooo good! I would have a hard time having them around – soft, crunchy, salty, sweet, dough, chocolaty. They pretty much hit on every craving, in one! And I swear there’s a recipe/images on Pinterest that I thought were already yours :) Like you already made these! But they were your PB Pretzel Bites I was thinking of! Thanks for the relink/pic or I would have been going nuts trying to figure it out. Lol

I am certainly one of those people who takes “a taste” of cookie dough recipe that’s supposed to make a dozen cookies and then by the time I get them in the oven, it only yields 8 cookies because I ate the equivalent of 4 in dough! ;) Lol. I’m sure these are super addicting.

    Hope u had an awesome vacation Sally, just wanted u to know that I went to yet another block party this weekend & I brought these as one of four desserts (all from your amazing recipes,by the way :)). I received the best compliment from my BFF’s husband & wanted to forward his praise: u get the crunch & saltiness of the pretzel,the sweet chew of the cookie dough & a taste of the chocolate,none of the flavors over power the others. I told him I’m now addicted to baking treats for everyone to enjoy cuz I found the perfect website that can satisfy every craving, I have you to thank for that

        So I made funfetti cupcakes w.milk choc frosting – kids love cupcakes :)(I substituted that for the vanilla buttercream), made a pretty cookie pizza w.your cake batter choc chip dough recipe, and i made s’more crinkle cookies, those were a nice compliment to end a beautiful summer day, u know?
        As I type this a fluffernutter cake is cooling on my kitchen counter & the cream cheese is softening in a bowl next to it, expecting the inlaws later so wanted to try a new cake for them to enjoy, plus I enjoyed making the cake batter with my sons, the little bakers ;)
        Enjoy the rest of ur day Sally, I’m gonna be in peanut butter & fluff heaven tonight!

    Oh, how foolish I was to think I could sample just one. These are insanely addictive! I just made them this afternoon as a little gift for my niece and I am concerned they won’t make it until saturday. One note: I added a little more salt (about 1/4 tsp instead of 1/8) to the dough recipe and used the Snyder’s brand “snaps” pretzels.

      Hi Kate! I know what you mean – these are SO addicting. Impossible to eat only one! So glad you love them. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible not to!

    I actually chilled the dough after I plopped them on a baking sheet. Only for 5 minutes, enough time to be able to roll the dough so it wasn’t sticky. Worked wonders! And instead of using regular pretzels, I used chocolate covered pretzels to skip one step. Thank you! They taste amazing@

      Just love the idea of chocolate covered pretzels! I’ll try that next.

    These look great! Is there a way to incorporate peanut butter into the cookie dough?

      Sure! Maybe add 1/2 cup of PB into it.

    I made just the dough part and tried a bit of it…it was pretty gritty and unappetizing. I decided not to finish the recipe as I did not like the gritty/ sugary mixture. Thanks!

    • Catrynreplied on January 11th, 2014 at 12:01 pm

      Did you use really soft butter? Cold butter probably wouldn’t cream with the sugar very well and leave the dough feeling gritty. I just made the recipe and it turned out awesome! It is definitely worth another try.

    I can’t believe I haven’t had these in my life sooner! I just made them and they were super easy and even tastier than I imagined! Thank you so much for this genius brainchild. I ended up using a 1/2 TBSP to measure as I was having a bit of trouble with consistent sized balls and it worked great. And it made about 30 bites so can’t go wrong there! I’ve been making your salted caramel chocolate chip cookies for a few months now. I can’t wait to try more recipes!

      Hey Danielle! You’ll love them. I haven’t met someone who doesn’t! I note in the recipe… 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.

    Lovely!!!!!!!!!!!
    Last week my friend Trace came over to my house, and we had practically nothing to do after we chatted for hours.
    So since we’re both baking addicts, I said, “Well, why not bake?”
    And, well, we were out of ideas so we stumbled upon this recipe…
    How! Did! You! Do! This!
    It’s such a lovely snack, and it doesn’t even require the oven!
    Thanks, Sally!

      Perhaps without the eggs in that dough, yes!

    I didn’t have any of the classic pretzel shape but I had stick pretzels so what I did was I made the cookie dough and used the pretzel as the stick and dipped the cookie dough in chocolate like normal. It looked like a cake pop and it was delicious!

      Hey Tracy! It’s very hard to cream butter without a mixer. You can try, but it will take quite a bit of arm muscle!
