Peanut Butter & Pretzel Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate Filling

We went to see a man about a house yesterday.

We liked the house, so we submitted an application.  Haven’t heard back yet.

The silence is making a little nervous.  When I get nervous I crave sweets, so I made cookies.

Not just any cookies, I made peanut butter cookies with peanut butter chips and pretzel bits.  But, that wasn’t enough to ease my nerves, I needed chocolate.   To be exact, I needed two peanut butter pretzel cookies with chocolate filling.

What can I say?! I’d really like to know where I am shipping all of my stuff too. Also, house hunting is exhausting.

Here’s the deal, I am currently staying in an adorable little camper with a tiny kitchen.  That means these cookies need to be easy, easy means cookie mix, and I am ok with that.   All that matters is getting these cookies in my hand with a glass of milk as soon as possible.

    Actually, I was confused by this as well….here’s the copy/paste from above:
    “In a large bowl combine cookie mix, chopped pretzels, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. ”

    So it did seem like we were supposed to put some in the filling and some in the cookie. One more question though- it says to add the chocolate chips and vanilla and let sit. Then whisk together. How long should we let that sit before we pull out the whisk? I’m looking forward to making these!! Thank you!
