Have fun with your friends and family by serving these trompe l'oeil chocolate pretzel cookies.
In this world, there are fancy, dainty, tea party cookies, and there are fun, childish, novelty cookies. These fall squarely into the latter category - not because of the flavor, which could rival any fancy treat, but the shape, mimicking pretzels, right down to the sprinkle of "salt."
Use your muffin pan in an innovative way for a unique dessert.
It would be fair to say I have a larger than average baking pan collection. I've got muffins, mini muffins, square muffins, cupcakes shaped like houses, bugs, and a variety of other things. But even then, sometimes I get a hankering for something a little bit different, a slightly different size or shape. By taking a pan I already had and looking at it differently, I can make something new without having to add to my collection.
