Favorite Hershey Miniature: Mr. Goodbar Peanut Butter/Pretzel Cookies

Doesn't that look like the best cookie ever?

Let me tell you, it IS the best cookie ever....

And this recipe is linked to Your Recipe, My Kitchen. There is a lot of good stuff over there. Make sure you check it out.

It is also linked to:

When you buy a bag of Hershey's Miniatures, is there one that everyone seems to pick around?

In my family it's the Mr. Goodbar.

So when everyone is done picking out their favorites, I am left to deal with Mr. Goodbar.

I have seen these chopped and added to cakes, but today I wanted to do a cookie.

This is what I did:

I chopped up pretzel rods in my mini chopper (one of my favorite small kitchen appliances).

I made a basic peanut butter cookie dough, rolled the dough balls in the pretzel crumbs (*note* Make sure you use unsalted butter for this recipe).

The crushed pretzels will give the cookie a salty taste.

I cut the Mr. Goodbar miniatures in half and placed one half in the center of the dough ball, kind of flattening the cookie a little.

This is what they look like after they are baked.

And is this now a favorite in my home? YUP, it sure is....

Mr. Goodbar Peanut Butter/Pretzel Cookies

1 c. unsalted butter, room temp
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
2 eggs, room temp
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 bag Hershey's miniature candy bars, Mr. Goodbar sorted out.

Enough pretzel crumbs to roll the cookie dough balls in.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter. Add eggs and vanilla.
In a medium bowl add flour, soda, and salt. Whisk together. Add to creamed mixture and mix well.
Roll into balls (about the size of large walnuts). Roll dough balls in pretzel crumbs. Place on cookie sheet (I use baking stones), place a half of a Mr. Goodbar candy on top of dough ball and press lightly.
Bake for 12 - 14 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and leave cookies sit on baking sheet for about 7 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

HUGS, from Angie

"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."
Ephesians 4:15-16

Some people think that any mistake will destroy them as a witness to God. Christians see their own weaknesses first, and they observe that some non-Christians seem to have stronger character than they do. How do we grow up into Christ? Christ forms us into a body, a group, a unit. Churches, religious groups, and families are united in their own purpose, in their love for one another and for God. If an individual stumbles, the rest of the group is there to pick him/her up and help him/her walk with God again. Do you carry out a special role for God in His work?
