Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies




2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups crushed pretzels + 1 cup pretzel twists
1½ cups chocolate chips
1½ cups caramel candies, unwrapped


Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add
the eggs one at a time, beating as you go.

Add the flour mixture a bit at a time while beating, until it forms a smooth dough.

Fold in the crushed pretzels and chocolate chips until evenly combined.

Press a caramel flat and place in the middle of a ball of dough, roughly two tablespoons.

Fold dough around the caramel, using a bit more to seal if necessary. Place on a well-greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven. While still warm, press a single pretzel into the top of each cookie. Serve with a cold glass of milk or on their own!
