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!

        Just to clarify, the recipe says to add peanut butter chips and chocolate chips into cookie mixture. So, the chocolate chips aren’t divided in any way? The whole cup of chocolate chips is melted and whipped into cream? I’m anxious to make these this morning! But I only want to go to the store 1x for ingredients!! Thank you, they really look delicious!
