Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner and the most exciting part isn't about the game or commercials...its the food!  Watch parties always have lots of yummy munchies to snack on and if you are looking for the perfect salty and sweet treat to serve your guest during the big game, then you have come to the right place.  Chocolate chips, peanuts, chocolate covered pretzels and crunchy potato chips make up this delicious and simple to make cookie.

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies

{yield: 30 cookies}

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
2 large eggs
12 oz. of chocolate chips
2 cups coarsely chopped rippled potato chips
1 cup coarsely chopped chocolate covered pretzel twists
1/2 unsalted peanuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat the butter, sugars, and vanilla bean paste until creamy.   Then add one egg at a time and making sure to combine fully after each addition.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda and combine.  Next coarsely chop pretzels and ripple chips; set aside.

Add the flour mixture gradually to the wet ingredients until combined.  Then mix in gently by hand the chocolate chips, peanuts, pretzels, and rippled potato chips.

Using a cookie scoop, place rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto a ungreased baking sheet and bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.  Allow to cool on baking sheet for roughly 2 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.  That's if you can wait that long...

Make this cookie the day of your Super Bowl party or for any occasion that your are in a mood for something salty and sweet.  Enjoy!
