Cant decide if you want a sweet or salty snack? Try these cookies that are packed with both flavors! I have been experimenting with ingredients in cookies seeing what makes chewy, not flat cookies and I think with this recipe I have finally received my answer…using bread flour instead of all purpose flour! The cookies stayed fluffy well after they were baked and still had the same great flavor!
For these cookies I made them two different ways- one way I put the pretzel on top and the second I mixed it in with the batter. I personally feel that when the pretzels are mixed in the batter it tasted a whole lot better.
What you need:
3 3/4 cup flour – I did one 1 cup All Purpose Flour and the rest Bread Flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened at room temp.
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of M&Ms
1 cup of min pretzels chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
3. In a stand mixer, combine the butter, and both sugars until smooth. Slowly beat in eggs and vanilla and scrape the sides as need. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips, M&M’s and pretzel pieces
3. Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto the baking sheets. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Be careful to not over bake, cookies do cook as they cool.
