Rolo Pretzel M&M Cookies

Move over Chocolate Chip– there’s a new favorite cookie in town!
And they’re completely incredible.
I’ve made pretzel chocolate chip cookies before, and those were pretty good.
And, of course, I’ve done the caramel and chocolate covered pretzels with M&Ms– those are Christmas favorites in our house.
So I thought, why not combine the two?
Magic, I tell you. Magic.
Eat up and enjoy!
(Oh, and I’d suggest making a double batch. You’re going to need it.)

  16. Just yesterday I was staring at a big bowl of candy at work that is leftover from an event. I was thinking it would be fun to make compost cookies with all the colorful candy. Looks like you already thought of that idea. These look really good.

  17. I only need some pretzel M&M’s to make these happen! They look delicious! Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  18. Featuring YOU tomorrow on my blog. Thank you so much for sharing at my {wow me} wednesday party last week. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  19. These cookies sound SO delicious! I love Rolos and I love pretzels and chocolate, so I think your idea to combine both of those flavors into one cookie was nothing short of genius! Definitely pinning these!

  20. I had never heard of cookie dough dip until I started blogging. What a brilliant idea! This looks insanely delicious. I am totally trying this! Thank you so much for sharing! I LOVE your blog- all the recipes are great.

  22. I don’t know what I did wrong, but all my cookies crumbled! They didn’t taste very well either! Any advice?

    • I really, really don’t know! I’ve made these LOTS as they’re my favorite cookie, and they always turn out…. Hm…. I mean, the only thing I can think of that would make them crumbly would be if you didn’t use all of the shortening and butter. Could that be it? Or if you used more than 2 1/2 cups flour? So sorry they didn’t work out!
