Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites Recipe

Cookie dough pretzel bites offer the irresistible combination of cookie dough, pretzels and semisweet chocolate in a perfectly portioned dessert!

Yield : 12


1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 T milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
40-50 pretzels
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening, optional


  1. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. Beat butter and sugars together in large bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla; mix until combined.
  3. Add flour and salt and mix on medium speed until thoroughly combined. Note: Dough will be thick and crumbly; keep mixing until it comes together. Fold in mini chocolate chips.
  4. Roll 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of dough into balls. Place dough between two pretzels and set on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  5. While pretzel bites chill, melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave for about 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds.
  6. Dip pretzel bites halfway into melted chocolate and return to baking sheet. Refrigerate the dipped bites for at least 10 minutes to allow chocolate to set. Cover and store pretzel bites in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or the freezer for up to 2 weeks (if they last that long!).


Concerned about consuming raw flour? There are two ways to make flour safer to eat:
  • Place the raw flour in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it for up to one minute or until the flour has reached a temperature of 160 degrees.
  • Place the flour on a cookie sheet and allow it to bake for five minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Either way, make sure the flour is left to cool before using in the recipe.
