Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites

Jump to Recipe

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

Pretzels stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough and dipped in chocolate. Add colorful sprinkles for extra fun!

Ingredients

For the cookie dough:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose 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

For the Pretzels:

  • Pretzels
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles if desired

Instructions

  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.

  1. 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 πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the link love and give that baby a squeeze for me! I miss him already!

  2. 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.

  3. Oh my!!! This looks awesome!! Salty & sweet would be perfect.

    Maria, it was so so good to meet you, josh & Caleb!! You guys are so awesome & sweet! Hope to see you again soon!!

  4. 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. πŸ™‚

  5. I made these for my coworker’s birthday today. They are delicious. I absolutely love the fact that I get the taste of chocolate chip cookie without turn on the oven. My coworker enjoyed her treat very much and she discovered you can eat these like oreos!! Thanks for sharing this recipe. πŸ™‚

  6. OMG, this is so unfair! I cannot resist cookie dough ANYTHING, least of all sweet and salty cookie dough somethings as adorable and irresistible as these. Love!!

  7. I am in love… The cookie dough pretzel bites are so delicious. I had to add a little more flour since my dough was a little loose. I loved them though. I will be making these again.

  8. I want to make these for Friday and it’s Monday do you think I can keep them in the freezer till say Thursday night and they be ok?

  9. Is it supposed to be 1/2 c. flour or 1 & 1/2 c.? It’s so fluffy and soft I cannot roll it into balls.

  10. ive made this twice and the dough is super runny. I’m adding more flour, but it still isn’t rollable. Any suggestions?
