Sweet and Salty Cookies

by foodlikecake

These cookies are magical. Popcorn, pretzels, and potato chips in a cookie? Who would have thought it would be so good. The saltiness works perfectly with the chocolate chunks, and of course… they’re also dipped in chocolate! I told you they were magical. 😀
