Pretzel M&M Cookies

December 17, 2012

Continuing with the holiday baking theme, I also made a batch of cookies featuring one of my favorite candies, pretzel M&M's. The combination of salty and sweet works perfectly in this recipe and adds an extra kick to ordinary chocolate chip cookies. These are great to make any time of the year but I chose to add in red and green M&M's to add a festive holiday touch. Happy baking!
