Breaking the Recipe Mold: Unconventional Substitutes and Variations

This recipe allows for a fair bit of adaptation and modification depending on your pantry situation. Anyways, why settle for the same old when you can mix things up and discover new variations with interesting flavor combinations?

Think salted caramel crunch cookies instead of this toffee pretzel version. Swap out the toffee for caramel chips, add a sprinkle of flaked sea salt, then indulge in this sweet and salty treat. 

You can also add butterscotch chips instead of pretzels for a crunchy, buttery salty-sweet taste in each bite.

Try chopped chocolate(dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips) instead of toffee. Maybe you could go for chocolate chip cookies with flaky sea salt on top for a similar sweet-salty balance.

If you are allergic to peanuts, make this cookie without them. Non-allergic alternatives to peanuts, like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, work well with this recipe.

The possibilities are endless! Have fun experimenting and discovering your favorite flavor combination.
