Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies by Braised in a Kitchen

We made it to Friday and I think that means we all deserve some cookies. Some thick, chewy, warm, chocolatey, peanut butter cookies. The best part of these chocolate dipped peanut butter pretzel cookies is they can be made with ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge/pantry!

Just about everyone has a recipe for these flourless peanut butter cookies. Some add in flour (there’s no need), or vanilla, or adjust the measurements of the ingredients. But honestly this recipe can’t get any easier and you probably don’t even need to write it down. For every one cup of peanut butter you add one egg and one cup of white sugar. Done. It’s really that simple.

Whenever I make these I always double up because everyone in the house comes running to the kitchen as soon as they smell them. And with only three ingredients you can pretty much make just the peanut butter cookies any time, even if you haven’t been to the grocery store in weeks. Even if you decide to go all the way and make the chocolate dipped peanut butter pretzel cookies, the recipe still uses things you *probably* have on hand all the time.

A couple of notes for these chocolate dipped peanut butter pretzel cookies:

  • You can definitely make these gluten free by subbing in gluten free pretzels which I find are crunchier anyway!
  • Make them vegan by subbing in an egg replacer (I have found that 1 banana works great for 2 eggs) and using vegan chocolate chips.
  • You can leave out the coconut oil in the melted chocolate, but it does help the chocolate harden at room temp.

Cuisine: American
Keyword: 30 minutes or less, chocolate, cookies, gluten-free, peanut butter, vegan, vegetarian
Servings: 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 c peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c white sugar
  • 1 c crushed pretzels
  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • 2 T coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, eggs, sugar, and crushed pretzels. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, measure out cookie dough.
  • Bake cookies for 15 to 20 minutes, or until done. Remove and allow them to cool for at least 15 minutes so they don't crumble apart when dipping them.
  • While cookies are cooling, melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between and cooking until completely melted and smooth. Once chocolate is melted, lay out a fresh sheet of parchment paper or wax paper and dip half of each cooking into the chocolate. Set out on the parchment/wax paper to allow chocolate to cool and harden. Enjoy!
  • Store leftover cookies in a container in the fridge.
  • NOTE: To make these cookies gluten free just use gluten free pretzels.
  • NOTE: To make these cookies vegan use a sub for the egg (I have found that 1 banana subs really well for 2 eggs) and use vegan chocolate chips.
