Today I am making these delicious chocolate chip cookie pretzel bars! I really hope you enjoy and tell me what you think if you make them!
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup crushed salted pretzels
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
In a stand mixer whisk together the melted butter with the sugar and light brown sugar until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and stir in the flour and salt just until incorporated. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/2 a cup of the crushed pretzels.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top, then press the remaining 1/2 cup of crushed pretzels on top.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. While the cookie bars are baking, melt the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips with the vegetable oil in a double boiler or in the microwave.
Remove the cookie bars from the oven and allow them to cool completely in the pan then remove the cookies using the parchment paper overhang. Drizzle the cookie bars with the melted chocolate and allow them to cool until the chocolate hardens. Cut the cookie bars and serve.
Hope you enjoy!
