People always ask me, "what do you do with all those goodies you bake?". Well, unless our family is really in the mood for something sweet, many of the special treats end up as "thinking of you" gifts to friends, neighbors, teachers, etc...I do freeze quite a bit to stockpile for the holiday season or special occasions. I love the combo of sweet & salty and anytime I can combine the two, it makes for a delicious treat. That's exactly what these M&M Pretzel Cookies are: a yummy combo of chocolate and salty pretzels!
M&M Pretzel Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar packed
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup m&ms
1/2 cup chopped up pretzels
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Combine flour, baking soda and salt and set aside
-Mix butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy
-Add in eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until fully combined.
-Slowly add flour mixture but do not overbeat (you can use your hand to mix in once combined)
-Stir in m&ms and pretzels pieces
-Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake 12-15 min or until starting to brown.
As an added bonus, I found these cute pails in the Target dollar aisle and made up some Happy Fall Y'All gift tags for these yummy treats.
