Wine, Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Wine

My boyfriend’s family makes homemade wine, a lot of amazing homemade wine.

This passed weekend we had the annual Wine Day party.

They start the wine making process and crush the grapes for next year. The rest of us watch, eating tons of food and drink great wines from the passed years.

This year they started with 2.5 tons of grapes (I did say a lot), so you can just imagine just how much amazing food and wine had to be enjoyed through that process. Really rough day.

Cookies definitely.  Easy to eat without having to put down your wine glass, which no one wants to do.

Since Pretzel M&Ms worked so well, I decided to try out

Pretzel rods wrapped in chocolate chip cookie dough.

Another cookie that could not be easier to make…

I just used a bag of UTZ pretzel stix, because I thought they were the right length.

And then I used Tollhouse cookie dough on some and Pillsbury cookie dough on others to see which came out better.

I just wrapped each pretzel stick in cookie dough, as thin as I could get it.

And then bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.

(I noticed that Toll House took longer to bake, and spread away from the pretzel more.  They are easy to fix back into shape with a spatula, still I would recommend using Pillsbury for this cookie.)

I feel like these need some sort of dipping sauce,

like peanut butter and Nutella…something.

I’ll work on that…

Any Suggestions?
