Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies Recipe

Caramel is the ingredient for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge. It was a great choice from Victoria from The DIY Foodie. What to make? With the holidays coming I knew I needed a new cookie to try, since I am known as the cookie lady.

I started searching on Pinterest and came across a version of the recipe from Chocolate with Grace.  It called for Rolo candies, and I  happened to have a bag of mini Rolos in my baking stash. I have to hide my chocolate chips and candy for my baking from my husband or he will eat it before I get to bake with it!

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 1/2 crushed pretzels
  • Bag of mini Rolo candies (about 3 dozen)

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and sugars together in a bowl. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
  2. In a small bowl sift together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet ingredients.
  3. Stir in crushed pretzels.
  4. Take a spoon of dough and wrap it around a mini Rolo.

Notes

If you use regular size Rolos, double all the ingredients, because it will make bigger cookies.
