Salty Snacks Cookies Recipe

I’ve seen popcorn cookies, potato chip cookies and pretzel cookies.  But I’ve never seen a cookie that hosts all of my favorite salty snacks.  So, naturally, I made one!  I prefer salty treats over sweet treats, but I absolutely love to bake.  This cookie just makes sense, doesn’t it!? 🙂  It’s all of those salty snacks that we love, in one cookie, and it’s amazing.  You really do taste every component, and get a nice crunch from this yummy, unique cookie!

What you need:

  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/4 cup potato chips (slightly crushed)
  • 1/4 cup pretzels (slightly crushed)
  • 1/4 cup peanuts (slightly crushed)
  • 3/4 cup popped popcorn (slightly crushed)

Make them:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Lay parchment paper over your baking sheet.

In your mixer, cream together shortening, both sugars, egg and vanilla.

Sift the flour, soda and salt, then slowly add it into the creamed mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, potato chips, pretzels, peanuts and popcorn until just combined.

Drop tablespoonfuls or 1.5 tablespoonfuls (use your medium cookie scoop!) onto parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.  Allow to cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet, then let cool completely on wire racks.

Try these unique cookies, too!
