Peanut Butter M&M Pretzel Cookies

These cookies are simply addicting! There can be nothing more delicious than the perfect combination of salty and sweet. What can make all your sadness go away more than M&M’s and pretzel’s combined? Nothing! I think that these cookies may have lasted about an hour in the office, so I guess you could say that these will be a hit anywhere they go! I found this recipe on Pinterest, but I modified it by adding some ingredients and switching up the way I prepared it to make it extra simple. I will leave the link of the original recipe at the end. See below for my recipe!


  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 handfuls of pretzel sticks
  • 1 movie theatre box of M&M’s
  • 1 movie theatre box of peanut butter M&M’s
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine butter, brown, and white sugar until creamed.
  3. Add vanilla and egg and mix until well combined.
  4. Add flour 1 cup and then mix and then add the rest.
  5. Add the baking powder, soda, and salt.
  6. Break the pretzels into smaller pieces, in halves, or thirds and add them to the mix.
  7. Add the m&m’s, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips and gently mix. I mixed mine for less than fifteen seconds. The dough will be LOADED at this points and you dont want to crush any of your candy!
  8. Scoop into 1 1/2 balls and lay on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
