The big game day is around the corner and with America’s national day of football comes three things food, drinks and depending on how your team fairs joy or stress. I can be a stress eater, and my go to stress food is a cookie. It is just so easy to grab! I thought what would be a great easy cookie, fit for game day and if needed a stress reliever?
Not just any cookies, I made peanut butter cookies with peanut butter chips and pretzel bits. But, that’s not enough to ease my nerves, I needed chocolate. To be exact, I needed two peanut butter pretzel cookies with chocolate filling.
Here’s the deal, living and an adorable little camper with a tiny kitchen has it challenges. If I really want to bake the best thing to do is to keep it 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.
The combination of peanut butter and pretzels is a classic combination, but add chocolate and you have the ultimate emotional eating trifecta.
Don’t you just want to stick your face in this pot of whipped, actually beaten because I didn’t have a whipping attachment, chocolate filling?
Next time you feel your stress level rising, anxiety coming on or you just had a plane cruddy day, eat two of these sandwich cookies with milk and feel it all melt away. Peanut butter, pretzels and chocolate can do that….because they’re magic.
Now if you will excuse me my “house hunting anxiety” has been compounded by “crazy slow internet anxiety” and there is only one cure. That’s right giant peanut butter pretzel sandwich cookies with chocolate filling.

Peanut Butter & Pretzel Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate Ganache
- 1 17.5 oz peanut butter cookie mix package
- 1 cup chopped pretzels
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Keeping it real from the tiny kitchen….
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!

these looks incredible!! and I love when ppl incorporate store box goods into their baking – always having time to bake from scratch is sooo not practical. love this!
These look delicious! Worth cheating on the diet for!

Wow! I’m such a sucker for pretzels dipped in peanut butter and this just seems SO MUCH BETTER! I love this recipe, thanks for sharing.
Charity Freeman says
how many choc. chips in the cookies and the chocolate filling?
There are no chocolate chips in the cookies themselves. As per the recipe the filling calls for 1 cup of dark chocolate chips.
LOL you are up early!
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!
