In my many years of food blogging, I have come across so many recipes.

So many.

I bookmark quite a few, make quite a few and post quite a few. But, to be really honest, there are more than a few that I make and then, well, forget about.

This recipe I discovered way back in the first few months of blogging and guys, this is one recipe I have not forgot about.

A few recipe notes:

  • This recipe does call for dark cocoa powder (see recipe card for the product I used). It gives the cookies a nice chocolaty flavor, but, if you need to, regular cocoa powder can be used.
  • If you don’t have any coarse sea salt, regular will work, but, the salt taste may not be as strong.
  • Once fully mixed, your batter will be thick. Use a good silicone/rubber spatula to stir in baking chips & pretzels. It will make the process a bit easier.
