As soon as I saw this picture on Pinterest, I knew it was an immediate "must-have, must-make" pin. :P For weeks I've been saying, "I have to make these!" and never got around to it. (People ate my pretzels, we had 21 people in our house over Thanksgiving, etc. Email me for the complete excuses list. :P) This morning I realized I wasn't busy and didn't have anything pressing to do, so I decided to bake. (I'm trying to make this a habit.)
These cookies are SO. GOOD. I will say though that you have to like the salty/sweet combo. As a Take 5 fan, I've always loved it; especially pretzels with chocolate. The three main tasty things in these are pretzels, peanut butter chips, and milk chocolate chips. I think the recipe does a good job with proportions. Nothing sticks out too much.
Happy December, by the way.
