Pretzels, chocolate, and ice cold's an interesting combination that really works. Wait till you try it in our Twisted Chocolate Pretzel Cookies!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 6 to 7 sugar cubes, coarsely crushed
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour and cocoa; set aside. In a large bowl, beat together butter, granulated and brown sugars, vanilla, egg yolk, and milk until blended. Gradually blend in flour mixture until smooth. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Divide dough into 4 even pieces and divide each quarter into 8 even pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured board with the palm of your hand until approximately 8" long. Twist each into a pretzel shape. Place 1" apart on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Lightly beat egg white and brush it over the "pretzels" then sprinkle with the crushed sugar cubes.
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, until cookies are firm when lightly touched. Let cool slightly then remove to a wire rack.

Prefer pretzel sticks to pretzel twists? Go ahead and shape them however you'd like...they'll still have the same fun flavor.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

the first item was 1and 2 thirds cup of apf

My assumption, as well, but it would be nice to know for sure.

How much flour to use? That quantity was omitted when posting this recipe. I'm guessing 1 cup, based on the other ingredient quantities, but it would be nice to know for sure!
