Mocha Cookie Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ounces white baking chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons hot brewed coffee
  • 2 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • Green colored sugar, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in melted chocolate and vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  • 2. Divide dough into fourths; divide each portion into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into a 6 in. rope; twist into a pretzel shape. Place 1 in. apart onto lightly greased baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • 4. For glaze, in a microwave, melt the semisweet chips, shortening and corn syrup; stir until smooth. Stir in confectioners' sugar and enough coffee to achieve a glaze consistency. Dip cookies in glaze; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper until set.
  • 5. In a microwave, melt white chocolate over 30% power; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Decorate with green sprinkles if desired; let stand until set.

    Had to leave the corn syrup out of the icing/glaze, it would become one big ball when mixed in.
