If you take me to a sporting event of any kind, I can pretend I am interested in the game for a solid 2 minutes.  Then I am distracted by the lights, the cheerleaders, the Kiss Cam (LOVE the Kiss Cam) and pretty much everything and anything other than the game I am supposed to be watching.  And as far as stadium snacks go, all I want is one of the giant soft pretzels (no salt) with about a cup of tangy yellow mustard.  Then, I’m happy as a clam and will not even try to distract you as you are cheering your heart out for your team.

My love for pretzels extends beyond stadiums and when I want a salty snack (which is rare, I am a sweet tooth after all) I usually grab a handful of pretzels.  So when I came across this cookie recipe, I was drawn right in.  I know what you are thinking.  Can’t this girl leave well enough alone?  Chocolate chip cookies are iconic.  Peanut butter cookies are so delicious.  But peanut butter, pretzel AND chocolate chip cookies???  Think about it though.  You love pretzels dipped in chocolate, right?  And personally, when I need a quick snack, nothing settles both my sweet and salty cravings as well as scooping some peanut butter with a pretzel.  And I mean peanut butter and chocolate together is an obvious no-brainer.  Hello, peanut butter cups?  So, before you are so quick to judge me, try these for yourself!  They are sweet, salty, chewy, crunchy perfection.

    I made these cookies today for a neighbor who needs some cheering up. It’s a great and simple recipe. The cookies are delicious and have that amazing sweet and salty thing going on. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

      Oh boy, I really need to be better about recording this! I would say at least 2 dozen, probably more! Thank you for this though, this will be my nudge to remember to record this information more properly. Have a great weekend!

    Just made these! So delicious! And I don’t really even like hard pretzels, peanut butter or chocolate… haha. I guess when they all come together with buttery dough though it somehow works!

      Thank you Leah! I promise that one of my goals for blogging in 2012 is to get better about listing yields on recipes! I would say this recipe will give you 25-30 cookies. I hope that you and your daughter like these sweet and salty goodies! Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!

    I made these and they are great! I’m not much of a cookie maker because I don’t have the patience to make a bunch of batches. I like that this only made about 3 dozen and the kids had a great time crunching up the pretzels and rolling the dough in them.
