12 Days of Cookies and Cocktails Day 9

12 Days of Cookies and Cocktails
Day 9

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bits
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (maybe more)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (maybe more)
  • Pretzels, 60-80
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl. Add in the sugars and mix until combined. If this filling will roll easily into balls without leaving your hands sticky, then proceed. If not, add in more of both sugars until it is easy to roll.
  • Take a teaspoon of the filling and roll into a ball, then sandwich them between two whole pretzels. Do this until you run out of pretzels and filling. Place tray of these into the freezer for about 30 mins.
  • Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each halfway into the chocolate. Return the tray back to the freezer until they completely harden.
  • Store these treats in the refrigerator until served.
