Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies #SundaySupper

Alright kids, its #SundaySupper time again! This week is all about the CRUNCH! Crunchy Goodness in all its glory. Granolas, snack mixes, nachos, nuts…I’m sure there will be lots of crunch for you to munch on. As obvious as some of the above ideas are, I was having a hard time coming up with a good recipe for this week’s theme. Thankfully, my co-workers are always full of good ideas.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies are inspired by Publix, in more ways than one. We’ve all been snacking away on the insanely addictive peanut butter-filled pretzels that were on sale last week. BOGOs are dangerous, I tell you! Especially when there is peanut butter and pretzels involved! These things are really hard to stop eating once you’ve started. To the point where your stomach hurts because you’ve eaten way too many. That is never fun, but until the moment when you kind of wish you could take back every bite, you’ve never been happier popping these into your mouth one by one. We actually still have a lot left, which is a good sign since it means we didn’t go completely overboard and devour two entire containers in one week. But in an attempt to get rid of them before we do overindulge, Rey came up with a seriously great idea. Bake them into cookies! So inspiration from my Publix co-workers, as well as those dangerously addictive pretzels has morphed into these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies, with all the crunchy goodness needed for today’s #SundaySupper.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies #SundaySupper

I used the same basic peanut butter cookie recipe from the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies I made a month or so ago, with a few changes. I used chocolate peanut butter, and instead of Reese’s cups and chocolate chips, I used the peanut butter filled pretzels, half crushed and half whole.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies
Makes 3 dozen cookies

1 large egg
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup Better’n Peanut Butter Chocolate Peanut Butter
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ tsp baking soda
2 cups Publix peanut butter pretzels, divided

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the egg, brown sugar, chocolate peanut butter, butter, and vanilla. Add in the flour and baking soda. Mix until well combined.

Place half of the pretzels in a food processor and pulse until most of them are crushed. Pour into the cookie batter and continue to mix.

Release the bowl from the stand mix and add the remaining whole pretzels. Fold into the batter by hand.

Scoop the cookies onto a silicon baking mat using a cookie scoop. Flatten the tops slightly with the back of a spoon. Bake for 10 minutes.
