So how are those New Year’s resolutions going?  Are we done with them yet?  I mean, we’re almost three weeks into January – I think that’s enough.  Or at the very least, can we take a break?  Yes?  Glad we’re on the same page.  Because I need some cookies.  I haven’t made any allllll year.  That’s way too long.  So without further ado, I present the first cookie for 2014 – pretzel chocolate chip cookies!  Yep, they are as good as they sound.  And as if the sweet and salty combo isn’t enough, these are also made with browned butter!  Definitely resolution-breaking-worthy.

Apparently Friday was National Pretzel Day. Coincidentally,  I was already planning on making homemade soft pretzels on Saturday for a small party we were hosting at our apartment. I love when stuff like that happens! I kind of think that we need to have a monthly National Pretzel Day (or at least National Pretzel Month) because these were SO good. I can’t believe it took me so long to make soft pretzels. Especially since TheBetterHalf is from Philadelphia, which is, as he likes to remind me, the home of the original soft pretzel.

When I stumbled upon this recipe on King Arthur’s website I knew I had to make it.  (As a side note, I love using King Arthur flour in my baking, and their site has some great recipes!)  The salty-sweet combo of the pretzels and chocolate are enough to win me over, but then add in peanut butter?  I’m in heaven.  And to top it all off, it is so easy!  Plus you can make it on a whim because you don’t need to have room temperature ingredients.  I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make for my friend’s St. Patrick’s day party.
