Ingredients

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • sticks unsalted butter, softened

  • ¼

    cup peanut butter

  • 1

    cup light brown sugar

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 2

    teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • One

    12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips

  • cups mini pretzels, coarsely chopped

  • cup M&M’s

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a 9-by-13-inch pan with parchment paper allowing paper to hang over sides. In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt. Using a mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter with both sugars at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. On low, beat in the dry ingredients, just until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and ¾ cup of the pretzel pieces, and ¾ cup of the M&M’s. Spread the batter evenly in the pan. Press the batter down with a spatula. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, until golden brown. The middle might be a little gooey but that is ok, the bars will set up. Transfer the pan to a rack. In a bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Sprinkle the bars with remaining pretzels and remaining M&M’s. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let cool until set. Lift parchment paper out of pan. Use a knife to go around the side of the pan to loosen the bars. Cut the bars in squares and serve or store in an air-tight container.
