-Cut your Fatty Sundays Dark Chocolate Pretzels into 1-inch pieces. Place a piece in the center of each cookie to decorate. The dark chocolate will begin to melt into the cookie- yum! Let cool and enjoy!
We love how oatmeal-y and chunky these cookies look and taste! The dark chocolate balances so well with the semisweet chocolate chip cookies, creating a bitter-sweet taste. We recommend enjoying them as soon as they’ve cooled, so that the warm chocolate melts in your mouth. Pair them with an ice cold glass of milk for the ultimate cookies and milk experience! Having friends over for the night? Bake these cookies right before they arrive, so they’re welcomed to the delicious smell of oatmeal chocolate chip. And make sure to order your Fatty Sundays Dark Chocolate Pretzels in time!
