Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies- Revisited

June 17, 2013

Today we are flashing back to a simpler time...2011.  Remember 2011?  Charlie Sheen had a bit of a public  meltdown. William and Kate tied the knot. Oprah ended.  And, of course..Table for Seven was born!  These cookies were the very first recipe posted on my blog.  Do you remember?  Quite possibly not, I think Mr Plain was my only reader way back then. Anyway, these cookies have been quite a favorite of ours and with my most current batch, I decided to take new photos and re-introduced them to you guys.  This is why..dark chocolate, peanut butter, pretzels, chocolate are mixed into a lovely cookie package. (Did I say chocolate?)  They are divine.  The only problem is you can not just eat one.  You will be snacking on these all day once you start.  Make sure you have a nice glass of milk to wash them down.
