Sweet and Salty Santa Cookie Recipe

Jump to recipe

My whole family is obsessed with these cookies. Holiday M&Ms, chocolate chips, pretzels, and flaked salt, what more could you ask for?!

The secret ingredient in this recipe is flaked sea salt.  My absolute favorite flaked sea salt is Maldon’s, which you can buy in a gourmet grocery store or online, here.

The way we like them best is with chocolate chips, holiday milk chocolate M&Ms and broken pretzels.

But you can get creative with your add-ins and try caramel bits, potato chips, raisins, mini marshmallows, Christmas sprinkles, or crushed peppermint candy canes. Really, the possibilities are endless!

Whatever you decide to add to your cookies, just make sure you don’t skip out on the salt, which should be sprinkled on just after removing your cookies from the oven.
