I can’t believe it’s December. I also can’t believe what a blogging slacker I’ve been. I have three posts typed up that are just waiting on me to add pictures. And more pictures sitting on my memory card that are waiting on me to write posts. I lost my groove. I need to find it.

Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Cookie Bars

The other night I was thinking about how much I love dark chocolate covered pretzels (that’s the kind of things I think about), then I thought about how good they would be crushed up inside a cookie bar. I love desserts that have sweet & salty components. If you haven’t tried dark chocolate covered pretzels, you should. I started with the Trader Joe’s version, then saw that Sam’s Club sells a giant bag of Pretzel Crisps, so I switched to those. Them being thin plays a huge part in why they’re so good, I think.

In baking, I usually use salted butter. It’s a personal preference. With these bars, I used one stick of salted, and one unsalted, to balance the saltiness from the pretzels.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks butter softened (like I said, 1 salted & 1 unsalted)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar I used light brown
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup crushed dark chocolate covered pretzel thins

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and set out a jelly roll pan
  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir.
  • In a large bowl (I used my stand mixer), add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
  • Gradually beat in the flour mixture - I do it in thirds.
  • Stir in the crushed pretzels.
  • Spread the dough evenly into the jelly roll pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While the bars were baking, I took the remaining dough and scooped out 6 cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once the bars were done, I baked the cookies for about 9 minutes until the edges were golden brown.
