Chocolate Tahini Pretzel Cookies

Chocolatey, perfectly chewy, yet crispy where it counts.. the perfect combination for the perfect cookie. Have I mentioned that these cooking are utterly perfect?! 😜

Fare Thee Well Chocolate Tahini Pretzel Cookies

The key to these cookie's perfection is the addition of Parallel Brothers Chocolate Sesame Spread in the dough + in the centre. This spread is the balance between savoury & sweet that you didn't even know you needed, until you take the first bite. Next thing you know, you've eaten half the batch.

This chocolate sesame spread is also AMAZING on toast, the perfect dip for pretzels or you can eat it like I do, with a spoon.. Refer to the Instagram reel below 😉

Chocolate Tahini Pretzel Cookie Ingredients

Parallel Brothers is a local Toronto company that sells exceptional sesame products + serves up delicious modern middle eastern cuisine in their on-site restaurant.

Chocolate Tahini Pretzel Cookies

What you'll need:

1 1/3 cup AP Flour

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/3 cup + 12 tsp (1/4 cup) Parallel Bros Chocolate Sesame Spread, divided

1/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

24 mini pretzels or 12 large pretzels

Flaky sea salt, optional


Preheat oven to 350F

In a medium bowl whisk together 1 1/3 cup AP flour, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp baking soda then set aside.

In a large bowl cream together 1/2 cup soften butter, 1/3 cup chocolate sesame spread, 1/4 cup white sugar & 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer until fluffy about 2

minutes. Add 1 large egg & 1 tsp pure vanilla extract and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients you whisked together earlier and mix to combine scraping down the side of the bowl as needed. Lately add 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips to the bowl and mix just to combine.

Scoop dough into 12 equal balls onto parchment line baking sheets. You will want them to be at least 2 inches apart to allow for spreading when they bake. Use a teaspoon to create a divot in the top of each dough ball. Spoon 1 tsp of the remaining Parallel Bros Chocolate Sesame Spread into each divot.

Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Remove cookies from oven and immediately bang the edge of the tray on a flat surface, this will help to flatten the cookies a bit more. While the chocolate sesame spread is still warm, gently press 2 mini pretzels (or 1 large pretzel) into the top of each cookie. Finish with flaky sea salt, if desired.

Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes on baking trays and then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely
