Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Everywhere I look I see salted caramel everything…is this happening to you?  It’s at Starbucks, in candy at the grocery stores and all over Pinterest!  Well, I decided I wanted to make a cookie with the salted caramel theme.   What better way to get salt than with pretzels and my family loves pretzels!  So I decided to show my boys a picture of the cookies and see if they were interested in me making the cookies.   Of course, they were not!  They said that sounds weird with pretzels in a cookie.   I decided to make the recipe anyway…and boy were the boys glad I did.   They LOVED the cookies!!  I mean really loved the cookies and I see them sneaking one here and there all day 🙂   This recipe is definitely a keeper!
