Peanut Butter Pretzels
Time to start thinking about those holiday food gifts. This is on my list for this year!
Peanut Butter Pretzel Snack
Yield 60 – 80 pretzel bites
1 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp softened, unsalted butter
1/2 cup powdered Confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
Pretzels (*I also used some yogurt covered pretzels)
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a medium-sized bowl. Add the sugars and mix to combine. Take a small amount of the batter (pea-size) and check to see if it will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands. If it does, then you are all set to go! If it still sticks and doesn’t roll easily, then add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
Use a scant teaspoon measure to scoop the filling. Roll each portion into a small ball, then sandwich it between two whole pretzels. When all the balls are rolled and successfully sandwiched, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.
Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each half-way into the melted chocolate. Return to the tray and repeat with remaining sandwiches. When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely. Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time.
