Estimated values based on one serving size.


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined, about 1 minute, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix on low speed until incorporated, 1–2 minutes.
  4. Fold in the candy-coated chocolates, pretzel pieces, and chopped semisweet chocolate with a rubber spatula.
  5. Using a 1½–2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets. Chill in the refrigerator for 15–20 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  7. Press a whole square of semisweet chocolate into the top of each cookie.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10–12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Remove the pans from the oven and bang on the countertop to flatten the cookies. Press a whole pretzel onto the top of each cookie. Let cool to room temperature before serving.
  9. Leftover cookies will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  10. Enjoy!
