I've been making Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from the time I started baking as a young girl.
Then a few weeks ago I saw this recipe that added in the salty pretzel. Chocolate and pretzels. What a great combination! I had to give them a try.
I found this recipe at http://www.thisweekfordinner.com/ .
Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookie Bars
1 1/2 sticks (6 oz) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz bag of chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini pretzels, broken in pieces
Preheat oven to 350. Grease/spray a 9x13 baking pan.
Blend the butter, brown sugar, and sugar well.
Add in the vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
Beat in the flour until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips and pretzel pieces.
Spread batter evenly in the pan and press down with a spatula.
Bake for 28 minutes until golden brown. They will continue to set up as they cool.
Share with friends and family.
These bars are actually better when they are cool. I liked them even more the day after baking. The flavor and texture of the pretzel come through better then when fresh out of the oven.
If you can wait that long!
