Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies


Sweet & salty is always a delicious combo. Case in point: caramel pretzel chocolate chip cookies. Loaded with gooey chunks of caramel and crunchy pretzels, these soft & chewy chocolate chip cookies are dangerously addicting.

ingredients
1 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
 3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 package vanilla pudding dry mix
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup caramels, chopped into chunks
1 cup pretzels


directions
 {1}
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars on medium speed. Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
{2}
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda.
{3}
Slowly add the flour mixture, stopping halfway through to scrape down the bowl. Add the dry pudding mix.
{4}
On low speed, add chocolate chips, caramel chunks & pretzels. The pretzels will break up from the paddle, but depending on how small you want the pretzel pieces, feel free to break them first.
{5}
Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, place balls of cookie dough on a non-stick baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Lightly press down to flatten the balls. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and store in an air-tight container or freeze for later. Enjoy!

  7. Ok, you've succeeded in making me hungry. I'd try this recipe with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts since I'm not a huge fan of chocolate. These make me want to give chocolate chip cookies another try though. YUM!
