Gourmet Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies
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.Submitted by: NEWMOMOVER40
