Author Melissa


  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 48 Red M&M's
  • 96 mini Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Twist Pretzels


  • Break pretzels into pieces to use as antlers.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cream together peanut butter, butter, sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, beating until incorporated.
  • Roll into 1/2-3/4" balls and place on cookie sheet several inches apart.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and gently make an indentation slightly off the center of each cookie.
  • Bake 12-14 minutes.
  • Place an M&M in the indentation of each cookie.
  • Insert 2 mini chocolate chips (pointy side down) above the M&M to be the eyes.
  • Insert 2 pretzel pieces to be the antlers.
  • If the antlers won't stick, place some chocolate chips in a sandwich bag and microwave 30 seconds and knead until soft. Clip the very tip of the corner and pipe onto cookie to act as glue.
