Pretzel M&M Cookies

Pretzel M&M Cookies

Have you tried Pretzel M&M’s? We splurged and bought a bag this weekend. They are the latest addition to the M&M family and they are scrumptious. The M&M’s have a colorful candy shell, like all M&M’s, but inside the milk chocolate there is a crunchy pretzel. Genius! I had to hide the bag from Josh. I wasn’t trying to hog them, I just wanted to save them to bake pretzel M&M cookies.

Last week I couldn’t use our oven because our kitchen was under construction. It still is, but Josh cleaned up the mess so I could cook and bake this week. It is probably the last week I will have access to our kitchen until the kitchen remodel is finished. I am going to make the most of this week. Yesterday, I baked a batch of pretzel M&M cookies. If you have tried the new pretzel M&M’s and are in love, like us, just wait until you taste these cookies. They are amazing!

I added the M&M’s to a chocolate chip cookie dough. I also sprinkled the cookie balls with sea salt to bring out the salty flavor in the pretzels. The cookies have a little crunch from the pretzel M&M’s and there is plenty of chocolate to go around. I love the sweet and salty combination.

I am going to stock up on pretzel M&M’s so I can bake never ending batches of these cookies. Go buy a bag today and get baking!

    This is a great cookie base! I was looking for a way to use up some m&ms but really wanted a chocolate cookie so I swapped about 1/4 to 1/3 c flour for cocoa powder and used regular m&ms (they’re all I had) and chocolate chunks — these cookies baked up perfectly chewy and slightly fudgy on the inside, the perfect complement to the crunchy m&ms. They were easily eaten within a couple hours! They’re amazing. Next time, I plan on making them just as you did. Thanks for the recipe!
