Pretzel, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Please tell me this title made you just as excited as I was when I found this pin! If you love pretzels, peanut butter, and chocolate as much as I do, we could probably be BFF's. Truly. And these cookies are an incredible combo of three of my favorite edibles.

They are as delightful as I ever could have imagined them to be. I've made them probably three times so far, and I'm not sure I'll ever go back to plain old chocolate chips again!

The blogger who shared the recipe says that you can use any chocolate chip cookie dough as your base, and we have a favorite {passed down from family friend Beth, a.k.a Queen of the Kitchen}, so I used that and just added pretzels, cut down on the chocolate a tad, and added PB chips. Soo sooo good.

If you'd like Beth's cookie recipe {the secret amazing ingredient is vanilla pudding}, here it is:

1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
2 and 1/4 cup flour
One small package of vanilla instant pudding

Mix butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients. Stir in a 12 oz. package of chocolate chips (or, for this recipe, 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate, 1/2 cup peanut butter chips, and one cup of broken pretzel pieces). Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden.

The original pin also suggested sprinkling the tops of the cookies with sea salt. I've done it with and without, and either way they were salty enough for me... so now I skip it, since I figure our diets are not lacking in salt consumption ;).
