Chocolate Pretzel Hamantaschen
Servings: about 15 hamantaschen
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
2 t baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate spread for filling
1 cup crushed pretzels
1 cup chocolate chips/chunks
1 cup chocolate chips melted for decorating
1 cup pretzels broken into small pieces for decorating
Sea salt for decorating
Cream together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together. Add in 1 cup crushed pretzels and 1 cup chocolate chips/chunks. Mix together. The dough might be crumbly, use your hands to smooth it out and combine it. Roll out dough on floured surface and cut out circles using a donut cutter, cookie cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar. Fill center of circle with 1/2 tsp. chocolate spread. To form hamantaschen I generally fold over sides then bring up the bottom to create a triangle. Since the dough for this recipe is filled with pretzels and chocolate I found it easier to simply pinch the corners together (starting at the top) to form the triangle. Bake on 350′ for 8 to 12 minutes depending on how soft or crispy you want them. I like them super soft so took them out around 8 to 10 minutes. Once cooled off drizzle melted chocolate over hamantaschen and top with broken pretzel pieces and sea salt.

I made these fancy hamentaschen . Froze them took them out put them on a cookie sheet let it sit about 30- 1 hour. Then popped them in the oven for 15 minutes cooled them then put the chocolate squeeze and crushed pretzels and salt. They came out great.!!!!
