I love sweet and salty treats with a passion and so does my husband. These bars are right up our alley!



2 c Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp Morton salt

3/4 c unsalted butter or margarine (room temperature)

1 c Domino light brown sugar

1/2 c Domino granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tbsp McCormick vanilla extract

1 c Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 c coarsely chopped pretzels

1/4 c peanut butter chips (for top)

1/4 c chocolate chips (for top)

1/4 c coarsely chopped pretzels (for top)


Preheat oven to 350. Foil line and spray a 9X13″ pan. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Using a mixer, beat butter and both sugars at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients just until incorporated. I stirred in some chunky peanut butter eye balled about 1/4 cup or so,1 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups pretzel pieces.

Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle peanut butter chips, 1/4 chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped pretzels.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.



Quick Tip: These cookie bars are perfect for the holiday season.
