Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies
The hubby worked his very first night shift last night, which meant I was home alone from 5:30 pm- on last night. I was hard at work, researching different entomatada recipes to come up with a plan of attack, when I stumbled upon these cookies. This recipe is from a blog called Your Homebased Mom, which coincidentally is run by a woman in Portland, Oregon. I am always surprised when the internet turns out to be a very small world. I almost left the house last night to get what I needed to make these cookies, I was that excited about making them. I managed to wait until morning but then yes, I did run to the grocery store for caramel bits and pretzels. My hubby, the professional taste-tester, loved these cookies (He said they are the best I have made. He said that about a couple of the Christmas cookies so I will take that compliment with a grain of salt). Here is the recipe for them, Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies. WARNING: Extremely addictive!
A word of advice: Try to make sure there are no caramel bits on the bottom of the cookie touching the cookie sheet. On a couple of my cookies, the caramel melted and stuck to the cookie sheet and I almost ripped the bottom off of several of my cookies trying to unstick them. On my last couple of batches, I just made sure the caramel was on the top of the cookie and I had no problem with sticking.
