Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine flour, sugars and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in butter and peanut butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add honey, milk and chopped chocolate; mix well.
Shape dough into 24 (1-1/2-inch) balls. Roll, 1 at a time, in nuts; place, 3 inches apart, on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Insert pretzel into one side of each ball. Gently press balls until slightly flattened.
Bake 12 min. or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 1 min. Gently transfer to wire racks; cool completely. (Do not lift cookies by sticks until completely cooled.)
How to Cut In Butter
When a recipe calls for cutting butter into a dry mixture, make sure the butter is cold. Slice the butter into tablespoon-size portions, then add to the dry mixture. Use a pastry blender or 2 knives to cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients. When the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and the butter pieces are pea-sized, it has reached the proper consistency.
Substitute 12 (7-inch) pretzel rods, cut crosswise in half, for the 24 pretzel sticks. To cut each pretzel, use a gentle sawing action with a serrated knife while slowly turning the pretzel as you cut.
Prepare using braided pretzel sticks.
