Have Leftover Pretzels? Love Cookie Dough?

I do!  I do!




And since a friend found me a whole bag of circular pretzels, I don’t need them for hugs and kisses candies.  I knew that I had seen a few pretzel sandwich recipes around the holidays and this one definitely caught my eye.  Complete with cookie dough and sprinkles…how could it not?




So yesterday afternoon, I woke up from my nap at 2pm, just as the snow started to fall.  Instead of using my big mixer, I went with the handheld one for easy clean up.




The ‘dough’ was super fluffy!  Eggless cookie dough = PURE danger!




I think I made my sandwiches a little heavy on the filling, but like I said, I really do love me some cookie dough!

I put all of my sandwiches in the freezer, licked the leftovers straight from the bowl, and went upstairs to get ready for the night.




A little over 30 minutes later, I got to the fun and colorful portion!





I melted some white and dark chocolate and used an assortment of decorations including sprinkles, chocolate chips, and Andes peppermint chips.

All of the pretzels turned out so bright and adorable!




And they taste unbelievably sweet with the creamy cookie dough center and a crunchy pretzel ‘crust’.




With the outdoors looking so bleak…




It’s fun to have some bright colors in the house.

From Two Peas and Their Pod



For the cookie dough:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup all-purpose Gold Medal flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips


2 cups milk chocolate chips

Sprinkles, if desired



1. To make the cookie dough: in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Slowly add milk and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Roll the cookie dough into little balls, about a teaspoon each. Sandwich between two pretzels and put on a plate or cookie sheet. Freeze the pretzel bites for 30 minutes.

2. Melt the chocolate chips, using the microwave (30 second intervals) or a double boiler. Dip half of each pretzel sandwich into the chocolate. Sprinkle pretzel bites with sprinkles, if using. Return the tray to the freezer and chill until the chocolate sets. Store the Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites in the refrigerator until serving time



Do you like Cookie Dough?  What is your favorite recipe?


I love cookie dough and will never forget calling my mom in college to ask for the cookie dough recipe on the back of the nestle package.  My roommates and I  had no chocolate chips and needed a cookie dough fix!

  1. You are so creative in the kitchen! Love the brightness of these, and who doesn’t love cookie dough?! I rarely make cookies because I have zero willpower around the dough 🙂

    • So true! I am the exact same way. The best part about these is that I finished them right before heading out the door and they were ALL gone before I left the party, so no temptation around. Now I am on to healthier, veggie filled, recipes!

  2. Man, I love my afternoon naps. They just come back to bite me on Sunday nights! Those pretzel sandwiches look awesome!!

  3. My favorite cookie dough has always been snickerdoodle dough (also no eggs) but yours sounds awesome-I will have to try it. That is sometime when my willpower is at 100%-I could see me eating enough of those to make me not feel very well!
