Salted Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies is a stellar recipe from The Perfect Cookie by America’s Test Kitchen. Did you pick up a copy?

A make ahead Valentine’s Day’s dessert is something to consider. If your week days are busy and you still want to make a special dessert for Valentine’s Day I suggest making Salted Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies. (Or these cookies!) The cookie dough comes together quickly and can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days until you have time to bake. Coming home to freshly baked cookies is a very special treat to share with your Valentine. Bonus, there will be no discussion over what is best, peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies. With Salted Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies we can have it all.
Amp up the chocolate and peanut butter flavors by adding a cup of roughly chopped, roasted, salted peanuts and a cup of peanut M&M’s to the original recipe. These add-ins are not required but highly recommended. I’ll take all the blame, making holiday cookies is my excuse. Just do it without regret. I also pressed more of the goodies, the M&M’s, pretzels and peanuts into slightly flattened cookie tops. Remember to add the flakey sea salt, it really adds intensity to the peanut butter, chocolate combo. The finished Salted Peanut Butter-Pretzel-Chocolate Chip Cookies are now ready for the mid-week holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
