These Salty Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies start with a browned butter base and are completely loaded with flavor and texture! You’re gonna love these!

Let’s talk about the cookies…

They are Salty Pretzel Chocolate Chippers.

I know.

The base is a flippin’ amazing browned butter cookie dough, loaded with salty pretzel crumbs and chocolate chips.

It doesn’t get any better.

The steps are pretty basic and there is no chilling the dough!  Can I get an amen-hallelujah?

Just brown your butter in a saucepan and let it cool slightly.

 

Mix that in with some brown sugar.

Of course I used my favorite KitchenAid® mixer.

I crushed up some small twist pretzels.  About a cup and a half…

Mix them right into the batter…

Once you have that all set, go ahead and use a large cookies scoop to portion them out.  (Here’s the link to my favorite cookie scoop)

Bake them up.  DO NOT OVERBAKE…if anything take them out when you think they aren’t quite done.  Trust me on this.

And don’t bother waiting until they are cooled.

I made these cookies as soon as you posted them today. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pretzels so I used chips (potato chips). They were very good but I should have omitted the salt or at least cut back on it. I will try with pretzels next time.
Thank you for the recipe and for all of your beautiful, yummy recipes that you share everyday.

Do you use salted or unsalted butter? I’ve just tried it with salted and it wouldn’t brown. Of course, I am cooking on a hot plate so that might have something to do with it!
