We’re kicking off 2014 with the perfect combination of sweet and salty! Who doesn’t love that combination right? We love that these cookies are chunky and with each bite you get a nice blast of salty and sweet with the pretzels, chocolate chips and caramel. However, the best part of this cookie is how easy they are to make. It takes no longer than an hour or so total leaving you plenty of time to enjoy your sweet treats!
