Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Pretzel Cookies

Wow.  That's a mouthful.

But look at them...

I'd say these cookies deserve a mouthful of a description.  Chocolate and peanut butter chips... pretzel pieces... sweet and salty in every bite.  Mmmmm :)

I'm not going to lie... these cookies are now tied if not a very close second to my all-time favorite cookie, Oatmeal Scotchies.  There's something about sweet and salty together that is so addicting.  Just try one... you'll get hooked.

All I did for these cookies was take a traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, change the chocolate chip ratio to 1 cup chocolate chips, add 1 cup peanut butter chips, and mix in about 1 cup crushed pretzel pieces.  That's it!  Simple.

Here's the recipe! Enjoy!

Chocolate PB Chip Pretzel Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup broken/crushed pretzels

Preheat oven to 375F.
Beat butter and sugars until creamy.
Add vanilla, flour, baking soda, and salt;  Mix.
Add eggs, one at a time;  Beat well.
Mix in chocolate and peanut butter chips as well as pretzel pieces.
Drop by rounded tsp.-fuls on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for about 8 minutes.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
