Caramel, Pretzel and Chocolate Cookies

This recipe is from one of my favorite blogs,
I thought it sounded heavenly and, yes it was. Crunchy, chewy, salty and sweet... just perfect. I added sugars to this recipe because I didnt think was sweet enough. You know me. All about the sweets. 

Caramel, Pretzel and Chocolate Cookies

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup pretzels, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup caramel bits
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugars together in a stand mixer or in a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, for 1 minute. Add vanilla and egg. Mix to combine, scraping sides.

In a seperate small bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Whisk together to combine, and then gradually add to the wet mixture. Mix until just combined. Stir in broken pretzel pieces, caramel bits and chocolate chips.

Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spacing dough apart atleast
2 inches. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden-brown. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before transferring to a cookie rack.

Makes 24 cookies. EnJOY!
