Don’t be alarmed that this post has raw cookie dough in it!  It’s eggless, so it’s safe to eat; not that having eggs in MY cookie dough stops ME from eating the batter, but then you don’t have to stress out about it if you plan on sharing these with friends!

My favorite part is that they are salty and sweet!  One of my favorite combos!  The cookie dough is great to use in homemade ice cream or eating from a spoon as well.  You know you do it too!  Haha.  Here’s a photo of the step-by-step process:

Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites
 
Yield: 28 pretzel bites
Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 50 to 60 pretzels
  • 8oz chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or shortening (for thinning the chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar together on medium speed until light and creamy. Add the milk and vanilla. Mix. Add the flour and salt all at once and slowly mix until everything is moist. Add the mini chocolate chips. Mix.
  3. Roll the dough into balls, about 1½ to 2 teaspoons of dough per sandwich depending on desired size. Sandwich balls between two pretzels and place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  4. While the pretzel bites are chilling, melt with the chocolate and coconut oil or shortening for about 1 minute in microwave, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the pretzel bites halfway into the melted chocolate and place bites back on baking sheet. Refrigerate the dipped bites for at least 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Cover and store pretzel bites in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    Oh my gosh…I don’t think I would be able to stop at even 5 of these! LOVE how bite-sized and mini they look. Which means I can totally eat more. 😀 Eggless cookie dough is the best!

      Haha, yeah, I’m usually a couple weeks ahead of schedule. Gotta spread out the sweet stuff between all the savory meals I’ve been posting!

      I eat even the cookie dough with eggs (shh!), but these are a great alternative and you don’t have to wonder if you are going to get sick! Haha. Thanks for pinning Kelly!

    Amber, I told my wife about these and she said, “That sounds disgusting”. She then proceeded to eat 6 in a row as I watched her eyes rolling back into her head with each bite. Next thing I knew she was curled up on the couch saying “I feel ill, why did you let me eat all those”…Sorry Honey, it’s Amber’s fault. Lol… All I did was follow the recipe.

    Absolutely LOVED these! I made them for work and for Thanksgiving family get together. Gone after a few hours.
    The sweet/ salty combo is addicting. Making them for third time within 2 weeks. Definite keeper! Thank you for sharing.

    I made these the other day and they were yummy! However, the pretzels turned a little soggy. How do you avoid this from happening?

      Hmm, I’m not sure. I didn’t have that problem. Maybe loosely wrap them when you store them, so they don’t build up condensation in the refrigerator. Glad you liked them though!
