Pretzel Marshmallow Peanut Butter Chip Cookies [Week 5 of 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies]

pretzel marshmallow peanut butter chip cookie recipeI get a lot of emails from people asking me about recipes. The other day I got an email asking me if I had a great recipe for Monster Cookies. I had never even heard of them, but I thought that it might be useful to someone else what I answered. When I am developing a recipe, I start with a recipe that I know works and one that I love. From there, I make adaptations and change out the flavors. For instance, this recipe. I wanted a cookie that I knew was chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, so I used the Savory Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that comes from Alice Currah’s book Savory Sweet Life. I used it as the base and swapped out the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips and added crushed up pretzels and marshmallow bits. A whole new cookie.

    Wow, do these ever look delicious! I love that you used peanut butter chips. I must live under a rock since I didn’t even know these existed. Now I”m going to keep my eyes open!

    These cookies look delicious. I’ve never heard of monster cookies either. I guess the only thing similar would be cowboy cookies, but then again those are not remotely close to these. I like the idea of peanut butter and marshmallow in a warm soft cookie πŸ™‚

    Thanks Becca! These are really good. One of my better ideas. πŸ™‚

    Oh wow – these are beautiful photos and perfect looking cookies! I’m the same as you – I’ll take recipes that I know are winners, use them as a base and adapt to whatever suits my fancy. I love the combination of flavour you used in these cookies – salty and sweet is always delicious!

    These sound amazing, I really want to make these for a cookie exchange we’re having at my office. How many cookies does this recipe make?

  36. bakedbree

    November 27th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    It depends on how big the scoop is, but I would say 3 dozen.

    I was a bit weary of making these, im not a fan of peanut butter cookies-at all. I dont think it has anything to do with the fact that im 30 weeks pregnant.. These cookies are AMAZING!!!!! i keep eating them, i cant stop!
