Picture of Dressed to Im-pretzel Cookie (with Pretzels, Peanut Butter and Chocolate)
Peanuts and pretzels are the nuts and bolts of a party. Throw in some chunks o' chocolate and whip them into a cookie. KABLAM, the ultimate party treat with a little salt, a splatter of sweet and a dose of gooeyness.  The construction is a rather straight forward cookie process so even the budding bakers can dabble.
