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.

Description

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 pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 4050 pretzels
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, such as Ghirardelli
  • optional: 1 teaspoon shortening

Instructions

  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 microwave, 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.

  1. Absolutely amazing recipe! I have made this several years for Christmas. I add fun colored sprinkles after melting the chocolate. I always double the recipe because I end up eating so much when I am making it! Follow the directions with no modifications and it will come out great!!

  2. Wonderful recipe. I made these tonight and they were a hit. I didn’t have chocolate chips so I used mini m&ms, still they were amazing.

  3. Hi Sally,
    I read that it’s recommended to bake the flour before using in raw cookie dough, so that it doesn’t hold any health risks. Do you recommend baking the flour?

  4. This is a great super bowl snack! Doubled the recipe, brought them to a potluck and they were gone in less than 30 minutes. 🙂

    1. One of my favourites and so easy. These are pretty much a dessert coz by the time you’ve squashed a ball of cookie dough between 2 pretzels and dipped it in chocolate its a few mouthfuls but who cares haha. Made a massive bowl of them and the whole thing went over dinner.
