This was one of those random creations that turned out even better than I expected!
There is only one thing I would change about this recipe.
Make a double batch next time!
Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies
1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels sticks
1 1/2 cups Kraft Caramel Bits
Preheat oven to 350°. In a stand mixer, mix together cake mix and melted butter. In a small bowl lightly beat together eggs and vanilla. Toss in chocolate chips, crushed pretzel sticks and caramel bits and mix until well combined. Using a 1 oz scoop (equals 2 TBSP) scoop out cookie dough and place on a cookie sheet. 12 per cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack…if they can last that long!
*A fun and simple addition would be when you’ve got the cookie dough balls on the sheet, sprinkle lightly with kosher or sea salt before baking.
