Pretzel M&M Cookies

Pretzel M&Ms. Add a little peanut butter and we are talking! I thought the M&Ms were pretty good. I wouldn't sit down and eat a whole bunch but in these cookies I thought they were great. The cookies were chewy and had a nice crunch of pretzel. The girls at book club thought they were great! I love sharing my treats with them.
