When I try to explain my blog friendships to my real life friends I feel a bit awkward. It’s hard to explain and I can tell some of my “real life” friends think I am crazy, and that it’s weird to develop such close bonds with people that I have never physically met. The funny thing about it is that I feel closer with some of my blog friends than I do with my real life friends..go figure. One blog friend I did happen to meet was Megan, and I adore her.
Ohh but there is more.
I absolutely LOVE maple leaves. They are the epitome of fall, and sometimes I even think about getting a maple leaf tattoo. Such a gorgeous leaf. MAPLE LEAF COOKIES HERE I COME! I couldn’t get over how cute the little owls were.
I love sharing goodies with my real life friends, but I SO wish I could share them with my blog babes!! I’m sure I could mail some of the baked goods I create, but I never know if they will hold up during transport. I made a delicious treat that is worthy of sharing with all my blog friends, if only we could have a huge blogger party in my living room! A combination of three delicious elements all in one created this delicious masterpiece. I saw a photo of this on Pinterest, and I just HAD to recreate it myself.
Chocolate Dipped Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites
For the cookie dough:
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 cup flour
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix everything together in a medium sized bowl. I added the dry ingredients together first, and then the wet, but you can add it all in any order. You may need to add a bit more milk also.
Once the dough is complete spoon small scoops onto your pretzels and then smoosh another pretzel on top. Then dip into melted chocolate and place onto wax paper. Place finished sandwiches into the fridge for 20 minutes.
- The chocolate chips in the dough got in the way at times when trying to sandwich two pretzels together. You don’t need the chips because you are dipping these into chocolate. Next time I will leave the chocolate chips out.
- The pretzels will get soggy from the moisture in the cookie dough, so these are best eaten within a few hours of being made. Good treat for a (blogger) party. If making for a small group, half the cookie dough recipe (or use your own dough recipe) because my cookie dough made over 20 pretzel bites.
- These were do delicious I died and was reborn 7 times while eating them. SO GOOD.
Chocolate, cookie dough, AND pretzels..that’s what I call a triple threat. The salt from the pretzels added the perfect balance to all the sweet! Go make these, they are easy!
Q: Are you a fan of the salt/sweet combo? YES YES YES!
