These brown butter chocolate chip cookies are loaded with toffee bits and pretzels creating the perfect blend of sweet and salty to satisfy any craving!
The cookie fest continues with these Brown Butter Toffee & Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies. That is a mouthful isn’t it? But I wanted to make sure you know just how much awesomeness is in these cookies.
Quick cookie recap, we have had Sugar Cookies with a super easy icing, Molasses Cookies coated in orange sugar and sandwiched together with ginger cream cheese frosting, and Vanilla White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Not to mention some sugar cookie cups tossed in there too.
I made these cookies for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap. A fundraiser for Cookies for Kids Organization. There were over 475 food bloggers who participated in the fundraiser and we had OXO, Land o Lakes, and Pure Cane Dixie Crystals as sponsors who all met our donations and together we raised over $7,000. Super exciting!!! Plus we all got to make cookies and swap! I received wonderful packages from three other bloggers and I sent out my cookies to three different bloggers.
So back to the cookies. Brown butter. Possibly the best addition that can be added to most baked goods. It adds a toasted, nutty flavor to the cookies. The toffee and pretzel pieces add the perfect balance of sweet and salty. And of course, the chocolate chips are in there too. Now you can see why I had to call these Brown Butter Toffee & Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies. Every single thing is just too important to be left out! These have definitely the cookie I have made the most of this month so far and I think it’s safe to say, I’m addicted.
Tips & Tricks:
- Chill your cookie dough to make your cookies fluffier, they won’t spread as much when the dough starts out cold.
- Add extra chocolate chips and pretzels to the dough once you have it scooped onto the cookie sheet, this helps make the top of the cookie pretty!
