Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies


Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies


Last day of classes today.

After today, I will officially be done with university. While my other friends who are in education need to suffer through summer courses, I will be off doing my own thing. Going to Hawaii. Going for a road trip to Edmonton. My summer will be glorious.



Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies


So how should I kick off this super awesome summer?

Well I started off buying a huge bag of pretzels, and it kind of..spiraled into a baking project. Because every celebration needs a good baking session.


Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies


And what better way to celebrate than cookies? Seriously, I am looking to have at LEAST 60 cookie recipes in my blog before the year ends. So 16 more to go.. I could probably do that in a week.


Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies


These cookies are inspired by the granola that will haunt my memories, and will never forget. For some reason, I have only made it once. This granola was the pretzel and nutella granola. When you get a taste of the pretzel and chocolate combo...man, you can never go back.

These cookies were the perfect sweet and salty combination that will make you want to reach back for one, two, five more cookies. They will be gone in no time.
