Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites


  • 80 pretzel snaps
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, dark or a combination)

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. 

Beat peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until creamy and smooth.  Roll into 1/2-inch balls and place in the center of each pretzel bite. Top with another pretzel bite. Once all pretzel bites are formed, place in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a double boiler. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Place chocolate in a stainless steel or glass bowl that can fit snug on the saucepan. Put the bowl of chocolate on top of the saucepan with boiling water. Once you see the chocolate starting to melt, begin to stir. Lightly stir until the chocolate is melted all the way. Continue to stir periodically so it does not get clumpy.

Remove pretzels from freezer and dip each one into the melted chocolate. Be sure to mix the chocolate after every few dips so it doesn't get clumpy.  Place each chocolate covered pretzel onto the lined baking sheet. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
