Brownie Cookies Dipped in Chocolate and Pretzels

Let’s start the week off with a good chocolate cookie fix. True to it’s name, these Ultimate Brownie Cookies Cookies really are the ultimate. It’s like a chewy brownie but in cookie form—crisp around the edges and chewy at the center—my favorite texture combo.

And I should mention the brownie description I’m also referring to is the kind of brownie that’s moist and tender, not the heavy, fudgy kind. I had to make that distinction because people tend to like one or the other.

In fact, my forever-picky husband loves that crisp edge with a soft center so much he went nuts over them, as did my 7-year-old cookie critique. Although full-disclosure: cookies are their dessert of choice.

    A little sweet, a little salty, I love it! The first person who ever thought to put chocolate and pretzels together is a food genius! Love these cookies, Naomi.

    I could be friends with your boys… I also believe that every meal should end with a cookie.So clever to dip them in chocolate and pretzel dust. I am in the fudgy brownie camp, but I am tempted to try these. As always, I loved your photos. Especially the one with the smeared chocolate. You always surprise me.
