Chocolate chip cookies in any form have to be one of my favorite foods on this earth. Raw, cooked, in other desserts, as a dip…. It just always tastes crazy delicious. Then I went and added pretzels and m&m’s to the mix and it blew my mind! The saltiness of the pretzels balanced the cookie making it slightly less sickly… This leads to the ability to eat even more cookies! Bonus!

The m&m’s add color and crunch to the cookie and makes them just look generally adorable. Like most chocolate chip cookie recipes, these are pretty basic to throw together and will have you sneaking spoonfuls of the raw dough in no time… I’m afraid I’m extremely guilty of this! So once you can restrain yourself from devouring the dough, the hard part is over and you’ll have perfect cookies in no time 🙂
