Another Shabbat is almost here! We’re excited to get back into the kitchen and give you another idea of how to make something yummy and fun for you to enjoy. This week, we’re making something easy and so delicious that they will disappear faster than you can turn around!

Cookie Dough Stuffed Pretzels

Step One:

Clear your counters!!

Step Two:

Wash your hands!

Step Three:

Gather your ingredients:
2 8-ounce packages of pretzel flats
1 box of Kineret cookie dough, or follow our egg-free cookie dough recipe below
1 9-ounce bag chocolate chips

Step Four:

Gather your equipment:

Baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Glass bowl (to melt chocolate chips)
Large bowl (if you’re making the cookie dough)
Electric mixer (if you’re making the cookie dough)

Step Five:

Make your cookie dough.
Here’s a recipe we recommend:
1/4 cup margarine at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup dairy-free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup mini or regular chocolate chips (mini are great in this recipe)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread out the flour on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Then, cream the sugars and margarine together using an electric mixer. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Let the dough chill for the fridge for a half hour. Then roll into 1-inch balls.

Step Six:

Place one ball of cookie dough in between two pretzel pieces. Smash to flatten a bit.

Step Seven:

Melt the chocolate in a microwave for 30 seconds at a time until smooth. Don’t overdo it!

Step Eight:

Dip the pretzel sandwich into the chocolate. Place on the baking sheet.

Step Nine:

Place the baking sheet in the freezer for a few minutes until fully hardened.

Step Ten:


See ya next time! Bye!
