Recently, I made this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie for my husband and I. After trying it, he thought there would be a lot of people who would love this recipe. And, he said I should share it on the blog. So, if you are one of those people, you can thank my hubby. 😉

Chocolate and peanut butter dipped pretzels are a yummy sweet and salty treat, snack, or gift! The peanut butter keeps the coating smooth for easy dipping!

Back before I was married and my (now) husband and I were still dating, we didn’t see his in-laws very much. That didn’t stop me from wanting to make a good impression with them. (Can you relate?!)

So, one of the first things I learned about my mother-in-law is she LOVES the peanut butter filled pretzels. So, in an effort to make a good impression, I made her these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzels!

The first time I made them for her it was near Christmas. So, I made some with and without candy cane bits. Ever since, I’ve make these for her every Christmas. To be honest, I’m not even sure if she likes the ones with candy canes or not, but she never complains. And, even though the combo seems strange, I think they taste yummy.

Is it strange to say my life was changed at the grocery store? Well, it was.

Plus, they had some of the cookies topped with cream cheese frosting. OMG! After trying a sample, I was hooked. Why had I never made pumpkin cookies with butterscotch chips before?

To make easy Apple Dumplings roll apples in buttery crescent rolls, smother, and bake in a sauce made from butter, sugar, cinnamon and citrus-flavored soda.

Using store-bought crescent dough might be my new favorite way to make quick and easy desserts! It’s probably why they sell out quickly at my grocery store around this time of year. So many other smart people have the same idea! Even though I’m late to the party, it’s truly a game changer.
