Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

   At the Doctors office, where I work, there are Audiologists next door that have a cookie oven. Yes, you read that right. A tiny little cookie oven, that is super cute! I want to steal it, but that’s another story…

   They bring us a box of freshly made cookies every Monday, and it takes all the will-power I have to not grab one, every time I walk into our break room. It’s like cookie torture whenever I go to re-fill my water cup.

   Now that I’ve been working out and eating healthy, it does get a little easier to over look the cookies, but the thought of eating one still lingers in the back of my mind sometimes. I decided that on my ‘cheat day’ last Sunday, I better make some cookies to fulfill that cookie craving.

  I went with these salty-sweet Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies. Oh man, were they divine. Especially, warm! I ate two, which totally satisfied my craving. They are my new favorite cookie, without a doubt!
