The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013: Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yum
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013

I have seen the cookie swap in previous years, but I guess I didn't realize it was something you could sign up for or I missed sign ups..something. However, this year I was on top of things and it was perfect timing for me to participate. I decided to make Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies for my three secret blog partners.

I actually had to make a second batch because I kept eating the cookies as they got transferred to the cooling racks. They are one of the best cookie recipes I've ever tried.

Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies | Absolutely perfect cookies that you'll gobble right up!

I sent a dozen of these cookies each to Mary Kay of Homemade Cravings, Victoria of Wilde in the Kitchen, and Elana of Stir & Strain. I found some very adorable Wilton packing items and some matching bubble wrap! I used little notes I found in the Target $1 bins :) It was a ton of fun to package everything up and ship it out.

I received Peppermint Bark Cookies from Traci of Pale Yellow, Ginger Snaps from Chelsea of Whatcha Makin' Now, and Fruity Cereal Cookies from Sarah of Punctuated with Food. I cannot wait to get the recipes for them (except the Ginger Snaps because Chelsea sent me a recipe card!) and make them to gobble up again! Thank you, Traci, Chelsea, and Sarah!! :)
