Special requests…

We all know that I get special request from time to time, none better than this one of course. But yesterday I did get one that in my almost 6 years of running this blog I had not come across.

Love your blog, love it. When you say you make the best stoner food you are right and I know. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and I would make a good donation to your site.
I will send you some pot butter and you make one of your awesome treats with it. I am tired of the same old brownies.
If you can’t I get it but never hurts to ask.

Well, alrighty then. Yes, I do make some good stoner food. And lord knows I could use the donation, but I’m not quite willing to go down that road.

But how about a compromise? How about a cookie recipe that you can use to make in the privacy of your own home with whatever butter you choose. :)

Trader Joe’s is evil and I always get sucked into buying things my waistline doesn’t need. Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels are one of those things. They weren’t on my shopping list and somehow they made it in the cart. I figured I would justify the purchase by making something with them. Since the blogging world is all about wrapping food around other food as of late, I thought I would throw these into the ring.

I once again used malted milk powder…I just adore it in cookies. On an amusing side note, while buying some today, they checkout clerk thought that malted milk was for some sort of home spa treatment. Ummm, if that goes in the tub, I’m drinking it. :D

Sorry B that I couldn’t help you out, hopefully you will still love me anyway, and maybe still donate. :)

Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel-Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup malted milk powder
Pinch salt
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
¾ cup milk chocolate chips
24 Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels (with salt on top)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine flour, baking soda, malted milk powder and salt in small bowl.

Using a stand mixer cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add egg, beating well after addition.

Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Take about a TBSP of dough and wrap it around the pretzel piece, rolling it into ball form in your hand. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat until gone. Should make about 24.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. yep – these would do it!! :D

  2. These seriously sound really good. Some of the things I’ve seen in blogland lately with this stuffed inside of that, etc. have just been way too over the top. But a chocolate chip cookie with a little pretzel inside, I could do that. ;)

  3. Sarah Farley says:

    Haha your posts crack me up. These look sooo good. I tried making some chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter oreos inside, but they didn’t turn out to well. The bottom half baked, and the top half stayed round. Guess that oreo in between shielded the top half from baking. Oh well. Maybe I will give these a try:)

  4. Peabody says:

    Yeah, you don’t want a ton of dough on top…or bottom for that matter.

  5. These sound amazing! Where can I find Malted Milk Powder? Trader Joes?

  6. Trader Joes doesn’t sell it. I got mine at Albertsons.

  7. Those are just terrific and so droolworthy! I’ve never eaten peanut butter filled pretzels (they don’t exist here)…



  8. PERFECTION!!! Love the TJ’s pretzels.

  9. OH I am definitely making these!

  10. These cookies look amazing!!!

  11. sadly no trader joe’s in toronto, but we have this joint called bulk barn where you can get pb filled pretzels…in bulk. they also sell chocolate covered pb filled pretzels that are soooo dangerous.

  12. Yum! you should rename these Chubby Hubby Cookies after the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream with the same combo :) Its my all-time fave flavor.

  13. That request is HYSTERICAL. Can you even send pot through the mail? I would think it might get sniffed out somewhere. Hmm.

    Well, these cookies look absolutely delicious. Those peanut butter pretzels are totally addictive. They’re my favorite thing to eat when I want to sober up as quickly as possible. Having them in cookie form could only help that along!

  14. I absolutely love the combination of pretzels, peanut butter, and chocolate. Yum!

  15. Who knew you could get a peanut butter stuffed pretzel? No such thing down under so I’m going to have to make a trip back home just to try them out.

    I haven’t tried a stuffed cookie yet – but I have tried the chocolate chip cookie over a brownie and that was magnificent.

  16. I think B will be very happy with this cookie recipe to use his/her special butter on! :)

  17. I have never even HEARD of Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels! Which goes to show I am not alert when I shop. (or that we don’t have a Trader Joe’s)
    Stuffed cookies would be fun. My imagination is going wild.

  18. I love peanut butter filled pretzels, I haven’t had them in a long time and now I have a mad craving for them! This combination sounds incredible!

  19. I really like your photos, do you use a macro lens?

  20. @George- I use a variety of lens, two of which are macro, a 105mm and a 60mm macro lens. I tend to use them often as that is my style of food photography.

  21. I really wish there was a Trader Joe’s closer to my house so I could get some of these pretzels!

  22. oh

    i can’t believe my eyes. we are addicting to these pretzels!!

  23. My kids are addicted to those pretzels so I always have them in the house. I love this idea! Some pretzels for kids, some cookies for mommy!

  24. Looks fabulous! Can non-stoners enjoy them too?

  25. This is great, but I do have to add, that probably by “pot butter” B means butter infused with pot. Since THC is fat-soluble, you have to mix it with a fat in order to release the psychoactive compounds, unless they’ve gone the extra distance and incorporated that into a peanut butter type product.

    I’ll offer this one up to “B”, though, I use pot butter in chocolate truffles, but I wouldn’t exactly say it is stoner food as you have to eat it to get stoned and then you want to eat the kind of stuff you post here (of which there is NO substitute).

    Donation will be forthcoming :)

  26. I am sure my husband would love these–sounds like his idea of the perfect dessert!

  27. Hi Peabody,

    You Americans do have some wonderful foodstuffs you know. I have just discovered the joys of “Goobers” peanut butter and jam.. in a jar… together! Marvellous! We don’t have such strange – yet addicting – fayre in England sadly. I won’t even get started with the pretzel flavour M&Ms. Wow. They used to sell Lucky Charms over here at one point in the mid-90s, however they were deemed too unhealthy I think. There are imported boxes in chic food shops – the irony does not escape me – , but they cost £8 ($13) so we gave them a miss :-/

    These look delicious. I cannot say that I have ever tried pot or pot butter, but any kind of butter is my kinda thing, ergo these look fab! Move over Ina! I made hollandaise sauce at the weekend just because of the butter.

    Right, enough of the butter lovin’. Please come to England and bring cookies and M&Ms and Goobers. You would make my life so much better!

  28. Would it be okay for non-stoners to make and eat these? LOL

  29. Would it be terrible if I left out the malted milk powder?

  30. AMAZING made them today!! love the malted milk!
