peanut butter pretzel bites...yes indeed!
First, A very big welcome to new followers! Thank you guys so so much for popping in and for following! It truly means so much to me!
Ok let's get right to it...cannot ignore these photos any longer! :)
Once again...a late night on Pinterest...lead to these! I pretty much had all the ingredients but the pretzels. And it wasn't too hard to get the pretzels once I turned my computer screen toward Aaron and my brother Jay. In seconds they were both popping on shoes, grabbing hoodies, and were back with the twisty salts within minutes.
These are so so simple! Terribly so. Terribly terribly so! ;)
They take minutes! A little freezer time is needed...but just about the time it takes to clean up, pour drinks, and queue up a movie!
Here's what you need:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar ( you will need a bit more)
3/4 cup brown sugar (may need a bit more)
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
baking sheet lined with wax paper or parchment
In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and softened butter, mix well.
Next, add both sugars, mix till well combined.
Now, you should be able to start rolling the filling into balls. If it is too sticky just sprinkle a bit more of each sugar into the mix. (I lined mine up on the cookie sheet)
Once you have rolled all of your balls, you can sandwich them between pretzels. When finished, pop them in the freezer for about 20 mins.
Meanwhile, chocolate time! In a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals melt your chips, stopping to stir and check them.
Now, remove your sandwiches from the freezer, and one by one dip half of each into the melted chocolate. Return to the baking sheet. Once finished, pop the tray back into the freezer for about 15 mins.
It's that easy! They are so so yummy! The brown sugar really makes them!
I think they are perfect party treats! Or even a really fun addition to a holiday cookie platter!
Let me know if you try them!
