Chocolate chip cookies are one of the most classic desserts out there. There isn’t much to this classic cookie, so eventually every baker makes their chocolate chip cookie with a personal twist. There are plenty of ways you can spruce up your cookies with toppings, add-ins, and decorations.

Some bakers prefer the more classic, chewy chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal and dark chocolate, but when I make my cookies, I like to go all out with as many add-ins as possible. The more, the better!

Made with pretzels, potato chips, and other yummy fillings, compost cookies are the perfect combination of salty and sweet. And they’re filled to the brim with texture and taste. Plus, our compost cookies are especially rich — thanks to ground coffee and butterscotch chips!

You may not think of pretzels or potato chips as a cookie filling, but their salty crunch is the perfect addition to a chocolate chip cookie. I don’t know how I ever ate a chocolate chip cookie without pretzels and potato chips before!

Check out our compost cookie ingredients and recipe below, then watch the video to learn how these cookies come together.
