Merry Christmas! I try to make my mom a treat for every major holiday, and I'm positive these no-bake chocolate peanut butter pretzel bites will be a big hit.
They're creamy. They're crunchy. They're salty. They're sweet. And best of all, they're really easy. This dessert recipe is the personification of Mr. Right in dessert form.
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
1 bag mini pretzels (circles, squares, whatever as long as its not pretzel rods)
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the peanut butter and butter on medium, then scrap the sides before adding the sugars. Beat until a soft dough forms.
Roll the dough into1/2 Tablespoon(ish) balls, then sandwich in between two pretzels. Place on a baking sheet lined with plastic wrap, then freeze the cookies for a half an hour.
Next, melt the chocolate in a microwave-proof dish for 30 seconds, then stir and repeat, if needed. Dip the cookies into the chocolate, then put back in the freezer for another 30 minutes.
