Chocolate Gingerbread Pretzels

Recently I have been asked when I'll start baking or blogging again. I haven't really stopped baking but blogging did take a backseat to life. I did miss it but, when posting became more of a chore than a fun pastime, it was time for a break.

However, I hope to start posting with some regularity and maybe treat myself to a new camera. I was in Indigo the other day and saw the new Holiday issue from Canadian Living. I was pumped because it was an all-cookie publication and I love cookies.

My son chose this as the first cookie to make. Be warned that they do take some to make, chill, shape, bake and glaze. Though the process is long, the cookies are yummy - sort of cakey, yet firm. They offer up all the traditional holiday flavours such as gingerbread, cinnamon and molasses and the glaze adds a nice sweetness to the spiciness of the cookie.
Sort of Pfeffernusse-esque. I hope to try out more recipes to share with you. Enjoy!

I love chocolate pretzels and I love gingerbread. But somehow, it never occurred to me to try and combine them. But after seeing this, I guess I will soon. Thanks for the recipe.
