Cookies and Cream Pretzels require 3 simple ingredients and they’re made in a matter of minutes! Make them for an after-school snack or hand them out around the holidays. It’s a foolproof salty and sweet recipe that can’t be beat!
Cookies & Cream Pretzels
I’m not kidding when I say this recipe is foolproof. It’s literally 3 ingredients and all you need is a microwave and a good resting place. Salted pretzels, white chocolate chips, crushed Preo cookies – that’s it! Melt the chocolate, dip, sprinkle with cookie, set, eat. The chocolate doesn’t even take long to set, so cookies and cream pretzels are a quick and easy option when you need a last minute treat. This recipe also makes a ton of pretzels and you could easily up the ante and make a double or triple batch for a school function or large get together! Bag them up and hand them out at work, to neighbors, your local delivery driver, anyone and everyone. The salty pretzels are just so good with the mix of white chocolate and Oreo cookie, everyone will be clamoring for your secret recipe.
What kind of white chocolate should I use for melting?
I used white chocolate chips for this recipe. The kind you find in the baking aisle with the rest of the cookie supplies like chocolate chips and butterscotch chunks. However, you could use white chocolate bark or melting wafers. Candy melts would work as well but taste a little different in my opinion.
How To Make Cookies & Cream Pretzels
- Crush the oreos. Place the oreo cookies (just the cookie part, remove the cream filling) into a bag and crush until you have fine cookie crumbs.
- Melt the chocolate. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt ⅓ of the white chocolate chips in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Stir between each interval. Stir the rest of the chocolate in 2-3 tablespoons at a time. Stir until melted, only adding more chocolate when the previous tablespoons have melted and been incorporated. Continue until all the chocolate chips have been added and everything has melted.
- Line your surface. Line a very large baking sheet with parchment paper (or if you’re making a really big batch, just cover your counter with parchment paper instead of using multiple baking sheets).
- Dip, sprinkle, set. Dip your pretzels one at a time into the melted white chocolate. Let the excess drain off. Place the coated pretzel on the baking sheet. Before the chocolate sets sprinkle with the crushed oreos then let them set fully before serving. Enjoy!
Storing Cookies & Cream Pretzels
The best thing about these cookies and cream pretzels is that they’ll stay fresh for up to 2 weeks! Store in an airtight container at room temperature and you’re good to go.
Ingredients Notes for Cookies & Cream Pretzels
- Oreos – When crushing your oreos to get the cookie crumbles, you could use a food processor if you have one. Add the cookies and pulse until you have small crumbs.
- Decorations – To make these a little more festive, try topping with themed sprinkles or adding food coloring to your melted white chocolate! These would look so cute dyed red and green for Christmas or with orange and purple sprinkles for Halloween!
- Chocolate – If you aren’t a fan of white chocolate you could make these with melted milk chocolate for a double chocolate treat.
- Pretzels – I used the classic mini salted twist pretzels but you could easily make these with the larger stick pretzels!
