Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites from

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!

    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!
