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.

  1. I love no-bake treats year round! I just love how quick no-bake desserts come together! Pinned!!

  2. I have been loving on cookie dough everything lately too! This is such a fun way to enjoy more of the cookie dough goodness…love that sweet and salty in this!!!

  3. I was going to say that my kids will go crazy for those cookie dough pretzel bites, but I have a strong suspicion I won’t be sharing those! Thanks very much!

  4. These would be such bad news in my house! Cookie dough, sweet and salty, chocolate…uuugggghhh. They wouldn’t last 24 hours!

  5. Oh my…I could eat about a BILLION of these. I’m really impressed at how you made such a seemingly messy dessert look so professional and clean. That must have taken some careful work.
    They look delicious!

  6. Ok stop Sally, just stop 😉 You’re making me fat! Actually, it’s my fault that I never can seem to stop eating your delectable treats. These look so good I can’t even…..WOW! 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.

  7. Lots of fun font colors tonight in your posts! Never change. It always makes me smile. 😀

    And this looks fun! I’d love to make this for a party or something because I would just overdose on it if I were alone.

  8. 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

    1. Kara – that is amazing to hear! And your bff’s husband is so right. You get everything in one bite! So glad these were a huge hit, as well as a few of my other recipes! You have to let me know which other recipes you made. Or will make in the future! 🙂

      1. 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!

      2. Kara, you have made a few of my very favorite recipes! I love those s’more crinkle cookies – and the funfetti cupcakes too! Oh and the fluffernutter cake. Oh my heavens, it is so good. I hope you enjoy!!

  9. 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.

    1. 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!

  10. 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 [email protected]

  11. 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!

    1. 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.
