Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites

We got back from Seattle last night. We had a fabulous time at BlogHer Food. I will do a recap post, but I need some time for it all to soak in. I am exhausted, but in the best way. So today I have a fun little treat for you, Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites. I stuffed pretzels with eggless chocolate chip cookie dough and dipped them in chocolate. Oh yeah-and I added colorful sprinkles. These Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites are sweet, salty, and addicting!

If your kids are out of school for the summer and are complaining that they are bored, make Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites. They are easy and fun to make and will keep the kids occupied for a bit. Just don’t blame me for the sprinkles that will end up on the floor…or the sugar high:)

These little Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites are perfect for parties too! The sweet and salty combo is excellent and who doesn’t love cookie dough? You can always change up the sprinkle colors so they fit any occasion. I think I will make them for the 4th of July with white chocolate and red, white, and blue sprinkles!

Add a little fun into your day by making these Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites!

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.

    I probably should never make these. Because besides all the sprinkles everywhere, I would probably be the worst mom in the world and hoard them all for myself :)
    Thanks for the link love and give that baby a squeeze for me! I miss him already!

      Loved meeting you at BlogHer Food! Caleb says hi:)

    FYI – The instructions say white chocolate, but the ingredient list (and pictures) says milk chocolate.

    I’m in love with cookie dough, but my hips aren’t loving it as much… I’ve developed a dip that’s a bit healthier, but a lot more tasty than the ones containing beans.

      Sorry about that. It was late when I was typing the recipe out…oops! I fixed it!

    these look so cute! I’m thinking of doing a late night for my 6yr old and maybe we will make these!

  20. Yum! I love chocolate covered pretzels…adding cookie dough to the mix can only improve the situation. Maybe peanut butter cookie dough? So good!!

    Glad you had a good time at BlogHer! I attended Eat Write Retreat recently and our food blogging community is so wonderful. These look fab.

  24. Loving these pretzels! I’ve made the Biscoff pretzel bites + pb chocolate bites, but cookie dough pretzel bites are on a whole other level. Love this idea Maria! There are so many delicious possibilities for these bites.

    I’ve been in a cookie dough state of mind ever since I picked up Landis’ cookie dough cookbook. :)

  33. Sweet + Salty + PB = YES! Count me in.

  34. Brian @ A Thought For Food — June 12, 2012 @ 7:33 am

    I really don’t know what to say. It’s stuffed with cookie dough? That’s kind of awesome. I think you may need to rename these Crack Bites.

  35. I was at BlogHer Food, too! It leaves you on overload, doesn’t it?
    These pretzel bites are so fun, and so cute! What a perfect party snack!

  36. Nancy@acommunaltable — June 12, 2012 @ 12:13 pm

    I am hiding this post from my teenagers so it can our little secret ok? Seriously, if they saw this I would NEVER leave my kitchen!! So cute … and so addictive!

  37. Averie @ Averie Cooks — June 12, 2012 @ 1:53 pm

    These are perfect for summer and no-baking or any time I want to go to town on cookie dough!

  38. Erica — June 12, 2012 @ 2:13 pm

    I can’t only imagine how addictive these are! And gorgeous too!

    1st of all: sweet, salty, crunchy, I don’t think I could stop from eating the whole batch by myself. 2nd of all, no hot oven to turn run on these hot, humid South Florida days.
