      I added one cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to the dough and omitted the chopped peanuts (the person I made these for doesn't like peanuts but likes peanut butter - go figure!). I chopped thin pretzel sticks for the recipe. Pretzel pieces flew everywhere. My dog was happy and thirsty by the time I was done chopping the pretzels. I used my small scoop and made at least 5 dozen cookies. The first batch looked like cookie balls because they didn't flatten out during baking. After the first batch, I flattened each cookie dough ball before I baked them. I heard that the cookies were a huge hit on the job site. I personally prefer crisp cookies and thought that if the cookies were soft, they'd soften the pretzel pieces. I baked the cookies for about 18 minutes. I will definitely make these again. Maybe next time I'll drizzle some chocolate on them after they've cooled down instead of putting chocolate chips in the dough. Thank you for posting this recipe!

      Awesome cookies!!! I am a total pretzel freak, so when I seen these cookies I knew I just had to give them a go. Love the sweet/salty combo. A definite repeat.
