Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.  Sweet creamy peanut butter sandwiched between a salty pretzel, and then dipped in chocolate? I am so all over that.  This is a super easy thing to make, requires little in the baking skills department, and is dangerously delicious.

I’m thinking I’ll have to make these for my Memorial Day Weekend camping trip. 🙂

Originally from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen

Ingredients:
■1 cup creamy peanut butter

■2 tablespoons softened butter

■1/2 cup powdered sugar

■3/4 cup brown sugar

■Pretzels

■1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat peanut butter and butter until combined. Scrape down bowl, add sugars and beat until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without sticking to your hands. If needed, add more powdered sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.

Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 teaspoon of mixture for each ball, and place on prepared baking sheet. Sandwich the balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth, and remove from heat. Dip each pretzel bite halfway into the melted chocolate and place on the prepared baking sheet. Chill in refrigerator until chocolate is set.
