This air fryer pretzel and chocolate chunk cookies recipe is the perfect cookie to enjoy with a glass of milk! Easy and quick to prepare, you’ll fall in love with the crispiness of the outside and gooey inside.
I keep a bag of these frozen cookie dough balls in the freezer (no need to bring them to room temperature first!) to pull out and pop into the air fryer whenever someone wants a sweet treat. My husband appreciates being able to make these up quickly!
Even better is that you won’t have to turn on your oven to bake up a small batch of these perfectly ooey and chewy cookies! Perfect for when you are hankering for your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and don’t want to turn on the oven.

Note: cook times will vary slightly depending on your air fryer.
The college kid comes home from school without warning, walks into the house, plops on the island, and asks if I have anything “good to eat”.
I hear my grandma’s voice saying “everything that comes out of my kitchen is good to eat”. But I know what he is asking…do I have any warm, sweet cookies?
I keep a bag of cookie dough balls in the freezer for exactly this reason. By the time he is done telling me about his day and remembers he wanted a treat…those cookies have been baked up in the air fryer and are ready.
Honestly, these little balls of dough are truly a lifesaver. Great for sweet treat cravings, college kid visits, and when there are only 2 of you at home to consume the treats.
