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.

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 20-25 pretzel bites
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American


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


  • 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


  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.

  2. These sound like the perfect appetizer for any party. I might have to double or triple the recipe for this!

  3. You are the sweet and salty and cookie dough queen!! Sally, these little bites are so cute and I can only imagine that they are crazy delicious!!
    Have fun on vacation this week!

  4. I hope you’re having an amazinggg vacation!!! These bites are just…omg yes. LOOOOVE anytime cookie dough is involved

  5. What tasty little bites! Since they are small, I can have 20 and it only counts as 4 right? I think I did that math correctly 😉

  6. These bites do look dangerously addictive!! I wouldn’t be able to stop at one (or 20 of them, mind you), they must be fantastic, love the sweet & salty combo!!
    Enjoy your holidays :–)

  7. These look like a crowd pleaser for sure! … if they even make it out of the house! I think I’d hoard these all for myself!

  8. Yum! What a great treat to satisfy your sweet and salt cravings! I love !! Enjoy your vacation!

  9. 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!!!

  10. I have half of a bag of pretzels left over from a baby shower last weekend and now I know just what to do with them!

  11. Ohh my lordy….these are pure crack! 🙂 I’m worried I would devour them all in one sitting, but these must be made in the near future! My sweet tooth thanks you!

  12. 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

    Have an amazing trip!!!! You deserve it!

    1. Yes! I love both the pb and this version Averie! I want to try both with white chocolate. YUM! Hope Aruba is great!!

  13. Oh wow. Cookie dough between pretzels. I can’t even! Between that pie and now this, I’m set for life!

  14. These look so addictive, Sally! I can already tell they would be a HUGE hit at our neighborhood happy hours. I love the sweet-salty combination – absolutely love. Enjoy your time away!

  15. These look absolutely amazing! Well done! I looove cookie dough, and having a no-bake recipe in the summer is always a good idea 🙂

  16. OMG, Sally – this is the perfect recipe for a bag of insanely salty pretzels I bought a few weeks ago. Combining salty + sweet = perfection in my book! Thanks for the quick and easy recipe. Hope you’re having a fabulous vacation!

  17. I’m so going to make these! All I need is some pretzels. I want to double this. Do you think they would freeze well? I’m worried about the pretzels becoming stale or something like that. Have you tried freezing any? Thanks Sally! You’re great!

    1. Hi Kristi! They actually do freeze pretty well. I froze these before (the peanut butter version) for about 1 month and they are great! The pretzels stay crunchy. Enjoy!

  18. So cute! I love the leaning tower of sandwiches, of course. 😀 I’d love to make these with either white-chocolate-covered or chocolate-covered pretzels, and then dip them in the other variety of chocolate! Cute little tuxedo treats. 🙂 I hope you enjoy your vacation! I just got back from Seattle, and it was great, but I feel like I’m walking into walls. 😉

  19. What a great idea. Thank goodness these are little bites right? Maybe not, I bet they are really addictive. I want some 🙂

  20. These are one of my favorite things you have made!! So glad I still get to taste test 🙂 Love you!! Tell Kevin Hi from the wine spiller 🙂 LOLOL

    1. YAY! So glad, Er! We got most of the stain out, but there is still a HUGE line on one of the cushions. And we can’t flip them!!! We just put a decorative pillow on top lolol

  21. These are such a perfect summer treat! I have yet to try your egg-free cookie dough – I’ll have to get on that soon!

  22. These sound amazing! I love the sweet and salty combo, it makes for the perfect treat. I am going to have to try these very soon!
