Salty Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies

 Ummmmmm, let's talk about how delicious all of these things together taste. There is a local coffee shop that makes a cookie with pretzels in it. It's obviously delicious. Of course I think to myself that I can recreate it myself at home and eat them whenever I want. They aren't exactly the same, but just as good. I searched the inter webs for days for the perfect recipe and I ended up just taking pieces from two recipes and fusing them together. They are SO GOOD.

You need
~ sea salt
~ 3 cups of flour
~ 1 tsp salt (regular)
~ 1 tsp baking soda
~ 1 1/3 cup of butter (sticks are always best )
~ 1 cup sugar (I use pure cane, but you can use whatever)
~ 1 cup brown sugar
~ 4 tsp vanilla
~ 2 eggs
~ 2 cups chocolate chips (i use larger ones)
~ 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
~ 1 cup of M&M's (peanut butter, caramel or butterscotch chips would work instead)

~Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
~ Mix flour, salt and baking soda and set aside
~ Mix both sugars, and butter. (I used regular butter because I forgot to buy sticks at the store. They turned out awesome, but sticks are always best)
~ Add eggs and vanilla to the butter and sugar, then slowly add dry ingredients
~ Stir in all chocolate pieces and pretzels.
~ Scoop dough onto baking sheet (I use an ice cream scoop, and keep 1 to 2 inches apart)
~ Add sea salt to the tops of the cookies
~ Bake for about 12 minutes depending on your oven. (12 was perfect for mine)

I made about 4 dozen decent sized cookies. And I have a feeling they will all be gone very very soon!
