I told you I’d come back with these cookie dough balls.  Actually, the only thing that kept me from eating the entire batch at once was all of the ideas brewing in my head.  Some of the ideas that you all suggested were kabobs, frozen yogurt/ice cream topping and mix-in, cheesecake, and cupcakes.  I can’t wait to try them!  This week, I wanted to keep it simple.  Between apartment hunting, preparing for a week away from the office, and just the normal summer craziness I didn’t have a ton of time in the kitchen.

Hence, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Pretzel Pops were formed!  So easy, but so delicious.  The hard chocolate shell on the outside and chewy cookie dough on the inside compliment a salty crunchy pretzel stick.  How fun would these be at a party?

Speaking of party, I’m going to start a monthly blog party!  The next one will be on  Tuesday, August 30th with sweet and salty desserts.  Send your favorite links to me by Sunday, August 28th (keepitsweetlcl at gmail dot com).
