Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies | DIY Recipe

Even though I am a sweet person, there is something to be said for a quality sweet and salty combo. These cookies are proof. Soft chocolate chip cookies loaded with salty pretzel bits and stuffed with Nutella. I don’t know about you…but in my book that is pretty close to perfection.

I may be a little biased though because I have a sick obsession with Nutella. When I studied abroad in Italy, Nutella had not made its way over to the United States yet. And let’s just say I took FULL advantage of having unlimited access to the stuff. I was eating so much of it, my teacher actually called me Nutella Girl.

So special, that when my EXTRA LARGE jar of Nutella got confiscated at the airport on my way home…I cried. Seriously…I actually cried. It was very upsetting. And what kind of idiot considers an unopened jar of Nutella a threatening liquid?! This very mean man in the Rome airport. That’s who.

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

Rose Gold, Gold and Black available @sweetsindeed.

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌
