Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites
Yield: about 50 pretzel bites
Pretzels stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough and dipped in chocolate. Add colorful sprinkles for extra fun!
For the cookie dough:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Sprinkles, if desired
1. To make the cookie dough: in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Slowly add milk and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Roll the cookie dough into little balls, about a teaspoon each. Sandwich between two pretzels and put on a plate or cookie sheet. Freeze the pretzel bites for 30 minutes.
2. Melt the chocolate chips, using the microwave (30 second intervals) or a double boiler. Dip half of each pretzel sandwich into the chocolate. Sprinkle pretzel bites with sprinkles, if using. Return the tray to the freezer and chill until the chocolate sets. Store the Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites in the refrigerator until serving time.
