Salty + Sweet. Everyone is doing it.
I saw these on Pinterest and nearly fell off my rocker. No really, I was in a rocking chair, because I'm very pregnant and that's what I do. Rock. Anyway, I'm a big fan of this candy bar, and these cookies have all of the same tasty elements: chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels. Salty + Sweet. I adapted them slightly by using a different cookie dough base, similar to these, because I wanted a really chewy cookie to contrast the crisp pretzels.
OMG as the tweens say to each other on cellular phones. These are good.
*These make a smaller batch of cookies, double if you're baking for a crowd.
Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chip and Pretzel Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp milk
3/4 cup bread flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
3/4 cup crushed pretzels
Sea salt for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl, beat together melted, cooled butter with brown sugar until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and milk and combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and pretzels. Place by rounded spoonful on parchment-lined baking sheets, and sprinkle top with sea salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.
