Gourmet Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Submitted by: NEWMOMOVER40
Gourmet Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Introduction

A friend made these for an office party with little square buttery pretzels and Rolo candies. I decided to "improve" on the idea. The pretzel thins are very crunchy so it's a big contrast to the squishy, dark chocolate Riesen candies. The best thing is each cookie is only 58 calories. Eat two and you're just topping 115 calories, but you feel like you have really splurged.

You could make these lower-calorie by cutting the Riesen in half for each cookie and substituting another pretzel thin for the pecan, making a pretzel-caramel-pretzel sandwich.

Ingredients

    2 Pepperidge Farm Baked Pretzel Thins
    2 Riesen Chocolate Chews
    2 raw pecan halves

Directions

Heat a toaster oven to 250 degrees. Place pretzel thins with the flat side down on a nonstick baking pan. On each pretzel thin, place a Riesen. Bake in toaster oven for about 3 or 4 minutes, until the chocolate candy is very soft but not melted. Remove from toaster oven and let cool for 1 minute. Press 1 pecan half on top of each Riesen chew and push it down into the chew to smush the chew into the pretzel. Be careful not to break the pretzels - they are delicate.

Let cool for another minute or two, then remove from the pan and place on a wire cooling rack to let the chocolate harden.

Makes 2 pretzel cookies.

Number of Servings: 2
