Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites Recipe

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites from addapinch.com

 

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites are just plain addictive. And delicious. And down right easy as can be to make. Little Buddy and I had fun in the kitchen yesterday afternoon whipping up a batch of these to give as a little something sweet to some friends when we visited them. Within just a few minutes, we had plenty ready to give, even after we’d been taste-testing about every other one that we made.

We also had plenty of these peanut butter pretzel bites to keep at the house, tempting me every time I pass by them on the counter.

So much for being good on my diet this week, huh?

The recipe for these may look familiar. It really is based on my peanut butter bars recipe, but squished between two mini pretzel twists and then dunked into the chocolate. Is there anything better than squishing peanut butter and dunking it in chocolatey goodness? I really think not.

Anywho, from start to finish, these bad boys, I mean delicious treats, are ready to snarf down or wrap up and give as gifts in less than 3o minutes.

Here’s the recipe for my Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites. They are great anytime of the year, but I especially love to make them in the fall and winter. They make wonderful gifts!

  1. These sound like such an awesome snack! Yum!

  2. Sounds like a perfect treat for our trick or treat party! Yum!

  3. Love the ease of these. They are also perfect for that holiday cookie platter. I too wouldn’t be able to stop taste tasting.

  4. These would not last a second in my house!

  5. Love these- I’ve made them before and they are a hit! I actually just frosted some peanut butter frosted brownies with milk chocolate pretzels on top…. can’t wait to dig in!

  6. Great recipe!! This is something to make when Zoe comes over to spend the night! Thanks for another recipe to make memories with.

  7. I’m trying to figure out if I can make these in secret somehow so I don’t have to share! They look absolutely and wonderfully addictive. 🙂

  8. I would love to have these around to snack on. . .though I would probably eat the whole batch way too quickly!

  9. How fun are these?? I love easy snacks that you can make in a breeze!

  10. They sound delicious as I love all of those ingredients but I wondered about how long do they last in a jar? I am assuming that the jar does not have to stay in the refrigerator. Love to hear from you.

    • Hi! Honestly, these haven’t lasted but a few days around here, so I can only tell you that they keep in the airtight container for up to three days. I probably should make another batch and post a “DO NOT EAT” sign on them to test, but I can just about bet ya no one would pay attention to it. 🙂

  11. Oh my! Delicious!
    Pinned it 🙂

  12. Easy and so delicious I will definitely try this one

  13. This is trouble right here!! Cannot wait to make these for Thanksgiving!!

  14. Hello Robyn, Merry Christmas!

    I was looking at your Peanut Butter Pretzel Recipe and was inquiring about the Peanut Butter Filling. I didn’t see on the instructions about the ingredients to make it. I’ve checked a couple of times. I really feel bad about bothering you. I was wanting to make for Christmas Snacks for the Holiday. Have a Blessed Christmas!

    • Hi Betty! Merry Christmas to you as well! Never worry about asking a question! I’m here to help!

      The ingredients for making the peanut butter filling are listed underneath the heading of Peanut Butter Filling in the ingredients listing. Here they are as well:
      1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
      1 cups graham cracker crumbs (1 sleeve ground to a fine crumb in the blender)

      I hope you enjoy them! xo
