Hey guys today i will share with you my Pretzel M&M Cookies recipe ! I’m still enjoying the beach, or at least that’s the plan as I’m typing this. I hope my toes are in the sand and I have a fruity drink in my hand. 🙂
I have another recipe to share for Cookie Week!
And yes, I’m still trying to find ways to use the jumbo bag of Pretzel M&Ms that I mentioned a week or two ago ( sweet and salty Pretzel M&Ms snack ). Hence–this recipe!
These little cookies turned out quite well–a bit of salty with the sweet. They were a nice change from the usual chocolate chip cookies that I keep in our cookie jar, and my kids really liked them. Yum!
This recipe only calls for 1 1/2 cups of Pretzel M&Ms, so even if you have a regular bag of these little candies, you’ll still have some left over for snacking. That’s a good thing. 🙂

(get the printable recipe here)
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups pretzel M&M’sDirections:
2. Whisk flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl medium bowl, set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugars together in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until smooth. About two minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
4. On low speed, slowly add in the flour mixture until just combined. Add in chocolate chips and pretzel M&M’s and mix for just a few seconds. (I gave it about 5-10 seconds to mix and crush a few of the pretzel M&Ms.)
5. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough on prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes until cookies are slightly golden around the edges. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
