Chocolate Chip-Pretzel Bars

This recipe is based a recipe from Food & Wine. If the edges are crisp and the inside is a bit gooey you made it correctly.

Servings: 24 cookies


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups mini pretzels
  • Chocolate sprinkles, as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Line a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter with both sugars at medium speed (setting 4) until light, about 1 minute. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. At low speed (setting 2), beat in the dry ingredients one cup at a time. Stir in the chips and pretzels.
  5. Spread the batter evenly in the pan and top with sprinkles. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden; the center will still be a little gooey. Transfer the pan to a rack and let cool completely.
  6. Lift the bar out using the parchment paper. Cut into 24 squares and serve.
