  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups miniature pretzels broken
  • 1-1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1-1/2 cups mini M&M's


  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars at medium speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Continue to beat at medium speed until ingredients are well-combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients, about 1/3 of the mixture at a time, to the creamed mixture. Mix until just combined. Repeat this step until all the dry ingredients have been added to the flour mixture.
  • Gently add in the pretzels, coconut, and M&M’s.
  • Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes before baking. In the meantime, preheat oven to 350°.
  • Form two tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cookies reach desired level of doneness.
  • Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.
