Peanut Butter, Pretzel and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter. Pretzels. Chocolate Chip Cookies. These are three of my all time favorite foods and their combination is just perfect - sweet and salty. Well when I saw these Chocolate Chip Pretzel Bars on Food & Wine's site, I knew I had to make them. 

I made two small adjustments to the original recipe. I added 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (you can never go wrong adding peanut butter!) and instead making of bars, I made the cookies in a muffin tin. It is one of my favorite twists on the traditional cookie because the center is always so soft! 


  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  5. 1 cup light brown sugar
  6. 1/2 cup sugar
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  9. One 12-ounce bag bittersweet chocolate chips
  10. 1 1/2 cups mini pretzels, coarsely chopped
  11. 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  12. Steps: 
  13. Preheat the oven to 375°. 
  14. In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat the butter with both sugars at medium speed until light, 1 minute. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients. Stir in the peanut butter, chips and pretzels.
  15. Add batter to the muffin tin. Bake for 17-20 minutes, until golden; the center will still be a little gooey. Transfer the pan to a rack and let cool completely.
  16. Run the tip of a knife around the side of the individual muffins and lift out of the tin. 
I hope you enjoy this recipe! We certainly are! xoxo Meggan
