I feel like these are fitting for today.
Thanksgiving is in less than forty-eight hours, which means the holidays are in full swing.
I think everyone could use an easy recipe right about now.
But just because these cookies are about as easy as it gets, does not mean they lack in flavor or cuteness.
Because for one there is both caramel and nutella. These two ingredients together can never do any wrong. And they are both sitting atop a chocolate covered pretzel.
I am telling you, it does not get more simple or better.
The base of these cookies is just melted milk chocolate with pretzels pushed into it. For the pretzels I used thin Pretzel Crisps, which I think worked so perfectly for these. They are just the right size and shape.
You should be warned though, they are kind of addicting.
The chocolate covered pretzels get topped with a large dollop of nutella. And I do mean large. I was very generous with my spoonfuls.
It’s nutella, so I say go big or go home.
Ok, so now comes the turtle part.
Add two roasted pecans to each cookie and then spoon on some of the melted caramel. Oh man, things are getting good!
Then just drizzle with some more melted chocolate and sprinkle with some flaked sea salt.
If you have a little extra time I highly recommend making some vanilla bean flaked sea salt. SO good guys.
And your done.
I told you, idiot proof. You do not even need the oven, the stove, a mixer, flour or eggs. They are just simple.
But ridiculously good.
Any so incredibly perfect for the holiday’s.
Easy for entertaining, kind of awesome as a snack and ready in under thirty minutes. Yes, done in under thirty! It’s kind of a dream Christmas cookie too.
Oh, and I have found that people kind of go nuts for pretzels covered in both nutella and chocolate.
So my guess is that if your bring these to a party, you are probably going to quickly become the hit. Well, or at least the cookies will!
Honestly, I recommend doubling and maybe even tripling the recipe. I mean, it only makes twenty cookies and trust me, they go so fast… fast like Lighting McQueen.
Sometimes the simplest things are really the best.
And this is one of those times.
