26 cookies


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (such as Natural Jif®)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 53 pretzel sticks, crushed

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix 2 cups and 2 tablespoons flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  3. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a separate bowl until smooth and creamy; add egg, egg yolk, peanut butter, and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Slowly pour flour mixture into sugar mixture and stir just until dough is combined; fold in pretzels and chocolate-hazelnut spread.

  4. Drop dough onto a baking sheet using 2 spoons.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes; rotate baking sheet and continue baking until cookies are fully cooked and still soft in the middle, about 7 minutes more. Cool cookies on baking sheet for about 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
