These salty, nutty cookies have a surprise inside—a delicious milk chocolate middle. They're surprisingly easy to make, thanks to Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix.
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on cookie mix pouch
bar (7 oz) milk chocolate candy, unwrapped, separated into 32 pieces (reserve remaining chocolate for another use)
Heat oven to 375°F.
In food processor, place pretzels. Cover; process to fine crumbs. Place in bowl; set aside.
In large bowl, make cookie dough as directed on pouch. Shape 1 tablespoon dough into ball. Flatten into large circle, and place 1 piece of chocolate in center. Wrap edges of dough around chocolate, and shape back into ball with chocolate in center.
Roll ball in pretzel crumbs until coated. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients, placing balls at least 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack.
If you don’t have a food processor, put the pretzels in a resealable food-storage plastic bag, and use a rolling pin or something heavy to pound and break up the pretzels.
