I have had a bag of awesome pretzel m&m’s sitting around here for a while.
Picked at, little by little.
When I came across this recipe, I knew this was a good rid my pantry of them for good…
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 large bag of pretzel M&M’s
optional: Kosher or Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Cream together shortening, sugars, and peanut butter.
Add egg, vanilla and milk. In a separate bowl combine the salt, baking soda, and flour, then add to dough.
Using a spoon add in candy, being careful not to break them apart.
Using a cookie scoop or spoons, form into balls and place onto cookie sheets.
Use your fingers to flatten cookies just a little.
If desired, sprinkle a little kosher or sea salt on top (Brings out the saltiness of the pretzels!)
Bake 10 minutes.*
*My oven only took 8 minutes.
