chocolate pretzel cookies

Mmm, chocolate and pretzels.

You know what I mean…

these are perfect when you want that salty sugar mix, with a healthy dose of chocolate.

And, yes I made these before my beloved oven broke….hours before, to be exact.

Oooo, I also made “Bavarian Pizzas”-in case I advanced. I didn’t, but that doesn’t mean you guys should miss out on a tasty treat. Right? Right!

As for getting booted from Project Food Blog- well, that sucked because I was having fun. But… I also realized that I didn’t have the same freedom as I had before. It’s nice to make whatever I want and post whatever I want-and not worry about being judged or racking votes. I also tapped into some creative cooking channels in me, so I have a massive list of things for y’all. 🙂 Aren’t you excited?

Bavarian Pizzas. No, not barbarian. Bavarian, silly.

You will like them.

I got inspired from the local German fest…

Cold beer inspires me, too.

I get great ideas over booze.

And coffee.

So… I will share those tomorrow.

Today it’s cookie day.

mmm, butter and pretzels. Add an egg and flour and sugar, and you’ve got yourself a tasty cookie crust.

You will have some nice crunchy pretzel bits in there, too.

spread them with some chocolate ganache
