That’s all there is to these pretzel M&M cookies! I love how chunky they are, they’re definitely a serious cookie. Perfect with a mid-morning cuppa, which is exactly what we did at work the next day! Everyone was pretty happy, that’s for sure! It took some serious self-restraint on my behalf to not eat too many of them warm from the oven – although of course I did have to do some level of quality control!

Pretzel M&M Cookies | I Spy Plum Pie You want to crush the pretzels small enough that they are able to be folded through the mixture, but I don’t recommend crushing them too much. I like to still have pieces of pretzel visible in mine! I love the colour the M&Ms provide (or whatever similar brand you like!) in these cookies too!

They store well in an airtight container for a few days, but it’s hard to see them lasting that long around people anyway! Seriously, who wouldn’t love some of these pretzel M&M cookies!
