Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Mega Cookie Bars


chocolate peanut butter pretzel mega cookie bars

Cookie time in my house yay! Ok, well actually it’s cookie time in my house everyday, since I bake daily :)
But this time was special, because I didn’t make normal flat and small cookies – I made these huge cookie bars!
So we don’t have them for a quick snack in between, we have them for our cake time.
I can’t really say much about them, besides they taste amazing – the picture says it all!
Huge, chocolaty, crunchy, satisfying!

If you don’t like them that big, you can of course make them in a 9*13 inch baking pan and get flat bars (described in the recipe).

Now start baking, and have a bite of the best cookie ever 😛

  3. I have been craving sweet and salty the last few days. I will have to substitute the peanut butter but otherwise YES I will take a big ol’ chunk of delicious.
