Have you ever been sitting there eating pretzel sticks when all of a sudden you have this sudden urge to eat something sweet? Like if you don’t eat it right then and there, there will be problems? It can’t just be me! One of my favorite combinations is sweet and salty together. I was at Costco once and they were sampling a delicious chocolate with sea salt sprinkled on top. They were to die for! So good! If you’re like me, then you will love this recipe for sweet and salty cookies! It’s the perfect amount of sweet with the perfect amount of salty all wrapped up in a cookie!

Is your mouth watering yet? My gosh these sound amazing, don’t they? The nice thing about these cookies is that you can change them up for your individual taste. Take out the Reese baking chips and add dried cranberries instead. Maybe even swap out the regular M&M’s and use one of the white chocolate M&M’s (I forget the exact name for those, but I’ve seen them at Target before). The possibilities are endless!
