Peanut Butter and Pretzel M&M Cookies

I’ve been on a cookie tear lately. Have you noticed?

It’s mostly because cookies are awesome. They’re super easy to throw together and when you show up pretty much anywhere with cookies, everyone thinks you’re really cool.

Especially when your cookies are as fun as these. I don’t know if you guys have ever tried the Pretzel M&M’s, but they’re freakishly addictive. Paired with peanut butter, they’re out of this world.

In cookie form, they’re kind of orgasmic. I’m not kidding.

The cookies are soft and sweet, the pretzels and M&M’s are crunchy and salty. These things have this crazy flavor-texture thing going on that makes your mouth sososo happy.

Seriously, you guys, these things are totally worth trying, especially if your a cookie beginner. All you do is put this stuff in one bowl, mix it up, and you’re done. Your tastebuds will thank you.

Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake time: 10 minutes | Total time (with cooking): 40 minutes

Yield: about 18 large cookies

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup pretzel M&M’s, crushed
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Pretzels to top

Preheat oven to 375 ° F. In a large bowl, simply mix the butter, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, baking soda and flour until well combined. Fold in the M&M’s and chocolate chips. Scoop out about 1/4 cup of dough, roll in to a ball, place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. Top with pretzel pieces. Repeat until all the dough has been used up. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden and the middle is still soft. Remove and let cool on tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and let cool completely. Devour.
