These Loaded Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies don’t just utilize mini chocolate chips, but they also use mini M&M’s. There is a whole lot of chocolate being added to these cookies.

I enjoy using the mini versions of both chocolate chips and M&M’s. You get a bite of chocolate chips and M&M’s in every bite with the little guys. Plus the minis are so cute.

You can use the regular size versions, but will need to adjust the recipe to 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup M&M’s.

Loaded Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies require dough to be refrigerated for 30-60 minutes before baking. The peanut butter makes the dough very soft and sticky; chilling the dough makes it easier to work with.

Bake these Loaded Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies at 375F degrees for 8-10 minutes depending on your oven. Mine baked perfectly at 9 minutes. The cookies may appear to be soft and undone, but they will set as they cool. You don’t want to overbake these delicious cookie creations.

Loaded Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies should be stored in an airtight container and will keep 7-10 days.
