Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup M&M's
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup crushed pretzels
  • 18 unwrapped Rolos**

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat.
  • Cream together butter, peanut butter, both sugars, egg, and vanilla until fluffy.
  • Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Once well combined, stir in M&Ms, white chocolate chips, and crushed pretzels.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the cookies.
  • Using your thumb, make a well in the middle of each cookie. The "well" should be deep enough to stuff a rolo in it.
  • Place a rolo in the well and pinch the edges together.*
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
  • They may look slightly under baked.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
  • These are best served warm.

Notes

*If your cookie isn't well-sealed, the caramel will leak out!
**You could also use Kraft Caramels, Trevor thought the caramel was too chewy, but I loved it!
