Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night one of my friends came over to make these cookies for her work cookie exchange. I am happy to be the helpful baking friend. 

While they were baking, we worked on mastering the Cups routine from Pitch Perfect. Have you seen it? Watch it, it should make you happy. These are the kinds of things I do in my spare time.

Anyway, these cookies are a nice mix of sweet and salty. The cookie is dense, almost like a shortbread. Not a soft, chewy cookie, but thick and crumbly.
