“Everything but the Kichen Sink” Cookies

Looking for something that you can use a whole bunch of ingredients at once? Look no more than these cookies! Containing chocolate chips, peanuts, pretzels, and potato chips, these are a sweet and salty treat with a forgiving dough that makes these very customizable. If you’re interested, read on!

Speaking of customization, these cookies have a lot of chocolate in them. Don’t want that much chocolate? Feel free to cut down on the amount–or even switch it to milk chocolate. Same thing with the other mix-ins; if you’d like more peanuts, pretzels, or potato chips, it up to you. Again, completely customizable!

What You Need

Dough

  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  •  1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 1/2 cups mini semi-sweet chips
  • 1/3 cup & 1 tablespoon crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup crushed unsalted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup crushed potato chips

To Top

  • Unsalted peanuts
  • Potato chips
  • Course sea salt

  3. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.03091913102022884967333547938.jpg
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Going a half a cup at a time, blend into the wet ingredients.03091913216838251177513372925.jpg
  5. If you’re using a mixing bowl or a hand mixer, switch to a spoon and stir in the chocolate chips, pretzels, peanuts, and potato chips.0309191331e1011247257081879050.jpg0309191335b1125706529591710976.jpg
  6. To prevent dough from spreading too much while baking, place in fridge for 10 minutes.
  7. When ready, begin to prepare the cookie sheet. Roll dough into table-spoon sized balls and flatten. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. If desired, top with extra peanuts and pretzels. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  8. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  9. Move to a cooling rack, cool ten minutes, and enjoy!

Just look at the amount of chocolate!

I’m actually partial to the potato chips; they provide an interesting texture but don’t throw off the balance of the whole cookie.
