Snyder’s of Hanover Sweeten Cookies

SocialMoms.net and Snyder’s of Hanover has teamed up together and asked me to share with my readers a delicious recipe including pretzels as an ingredient and my healthy snacking tips,you can read more about this request here.

It seems like the culinary world has been slightly obsessed with the salty & sweet combination lately. I loved what the pretzels added to the cookie. They stayed nice and crispy, which is a great contrast to the chewy cookie. I absolutely love the combination of pretzel, chocolate and peanut butter.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Pretzel Cookies
Makes 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of tightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup broken up Snyder’s of Hanover pretzel pieces
  • Sea Salt

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a larger bowl, beat the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). On low speed, slowly add the beaten egg and vanilla extract. Beat to combine, scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add the flour mixture and beat just until there are no more streaks of flour. Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop out well rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough and sprinkle with salt. Leave about 2 inches between each ball. Bake for 10 minutes. If you prefer crispier cookies increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing.
