Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the mood for baking so I surprised my kids with these peanut butter pretzel chocolate chip cookies from a recipe I found on Life Made Simple. Boy were they happy! I craved peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate when I was pregnant with both of my kids so this combination of flavors and textures made sense to me. The cookies were easy to make, smelled fantastic while they baked, and were utterly delicious dipped in ice-cold milk. Both of my kids deemed these cookies very tasty and totally blog-worthy.

How to Make Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

In a large bowl, beat the white sugar, brown sugar, creamy peanut butter, and softened butter together with a mixer for 1-2 minutes, or until creamy & fluffy. Add the egg, additional yolk, and vanilla; beat until combined.

Mix the flour together with the baking soda, and salt until very well combined.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; mix until just combined. Add the chopped pretzels and chocolate chips; mix until just combined.

Cover with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop place 12 rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Place a mini pretzel on top by gently flattening them into the top of the dough.

Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until just golden brown. Remove from the oven then allow to rest on the baking sheet for a few more minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.

Add a few extra chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies immediately after they are removed from the oven if desired.

Serve these cookies warm with ice-cold milk, if desired. Enjoy.

  1. I think you should ship some my way….!!

  2. They look so inviting! Peanut butter and chocolate are definitely a winning combo!

  3. How cute these are – a real child pleaser. And my husband would fit into that category. Nice recipe.

  4. I love peanut butter cookies, and combining them with chocolate chips is decadent. And then there’s the trend toward chocolate covered pretzels, so you’ve combined the best of all of these worlds! I’m sure your kids know how lucky they are.

  5. We both dislike peanut butter so these will not be on my ‘to cook’ list. Enjoy your weekend Diane
