Chocolate Covered Cookie Butter Pretzels

Yes, I’m still alive.  I’ve just been buried in butter, sugar and chocolate… especially in the form of blondies over the last few weeks.  Keep It Sweet Desserts was lucky enough to get a very flattering mention in Star Magazine and readers have been calling, emailing and placing orders like crazy.  It is amazing.

Some highlights include: “What makes your black and white blondies black and white?” (that would be the dark and white chocolate chips) as well as “Can I order over the phone? I don’t have an email address… or a computer.”  Can’t make this stuff up.

And if I told you how much someone was willing to pay for overnight shipping for a rush delivery you might choke so I won’t mention that (ahem, over $100).  Hey, when you need brownies, you really need brownies.

But last week in-between a college friend’s wedding hangover, a late night rush to the eye doctor for a scratched cornea, celebrating our 2nd anniversary and a list minute trip to Philadelphia to see my 94-year old grandfather (highlight: his reaction to the cost of college today, low: having to remind him that my grandmother died five years ago), I managed to get back into the kitchen for some actual recipe creation.

Let me pause to tell you that I absolutely love what I am doing.  But on weeks when I am busy processing orders for my regular cookies, brownies and bars, I miss my moments of creativity.  That is part of why I love the Cookie of the Month Club and a huge reason why I won’t stop blogging.  There is always something new and fun to do in the kitchen and I don’t want to lose those opportunities.  So when I finally had a few minutes of “play” time, I did something that I’ve wanted to do for a while.  I dipped pretzels in cookie butter and then in chocolate and sprinkled some sea salt in top.  Addicting snack? Father’s Day gift?  Party dessert?

    So excited for you and this awesome business…and these pretzels! Such a simple and inventive idea :)

  25. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts June 13, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

    I am so glad your business is doing so well, that is awesome! I love these little pretzel bites. I just bought my first jar of cookie butter this last weekend, so I might have to try these soon!

  26. Elina (Healthy and Sane) June 13, 2012 at 10:17 pm #

    Yay, so glad to hear your business is kicking ass. That’s so amazing! I got really busy right before vacation but haven’t heard from new clients while I was away so I’m getting nervous that I’m no longer on a roll. Time to get creative!
    I’ve been craving chocolate like crazy (could be cause I was eating it daily on vacay) so these look incredible (and relatively healthy given the bulk of it is the pretzel and dark chocolate has antioxidants). Love!

    • admin June 14, 2012 at 9:16 am #

      I’m sure it will come back! Every time I think things are slowing down they get crazy again. Oh, and I used whole wheat pretzels so these are completely healthy;-)

  27. Katie June 14, 2012 at 4:03 am #

    Wow, you totally just blew my mind!

  28. Christina @ Sweet Pea's Kitchen June 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    Mmmm…gotta love that sweet and salty combo! Looks great! :)

  35. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel June 26, 2012 at 1:21 am #

    Now wait a minute. Cookie butter dipped pretzels that are THEN dipped in chocolate? And THEN sprinkled with possibly my favorite ingredient EVER: sea salt? Giiiirl, why are we not BFFs? We could totally do Trader Joe’s shopping together and eat these pretzels in like, one sitting. Or I could. Whatever works for you :)

    • admin June 26, 2012 at 6:47 am #

      Yes! Both would work for me:-)

  36. Ashley June 26, 2012 at 3:02 pm #

    I just stared a straight 5 minutes at that first picture – omg I want it in my mouth right now! First time here, looking forward to seeing more!

  37. Kay July 9, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    Oh my goodness, these look heavenly! My mouth is watering, can’t wait to make them. Thanks
