Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love salty-and-sweet treats, these are for you.

Soft chocolate chip cookies with crunchy pretzels baked in.

Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies - Soft chocolate chip cookies packed with chocolate chips and crunchy pretzels!! Salty-and-sweet all in one!!

There are so many different flavor and texture elements, making the cookies totally irresistible.

I adapted the dough base I used in Trail Mix Protein Bar Cookies and Cream Cheese Cookies. I’ve been enjoying this base lately because the cookies turn out soft, slightly chewy, buttery with rich brown sugar flavor, and the batch size is under 1 dozen, perfect for my small family. You can always double it if you need more.
