Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies Recipe - Triple Chocolate Kitchen

Caramel is the ingredient for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge. It was a great choice from Victoria from The DIY Foodie. What to make? With the holidays coming I knew I needed a new cookie to try, since I am known as the cookie lady.

I started searching on Pinterest and came across a version of the recipe from Chocolate with Grace.  It called for Rolo candies, and I  happened to have a bag of mini Rolos in my baking stash. I have to hide my chocolate chips and candy for my baking from my husband or he will eat it before I get to bake with it!
