I believe Chocolate remains the most popular of all flavours every Christmas . This year I thought I would add a modern twist by adding salt to the flavour. Chocolate and peanut butter are holiday snacking staples so today I am sharing how to make Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel treats, a play on chocolate peanut butter balls or buckeyes.
Chocolate Pretzel Treat Ingredients
2 cups peanut butter
1 cup peanuts
2.5 cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp butter
1 cup Belgian melting chocolate
Take out a cookie sheet, line with parchment and lay out half the pretzels.
Place the peanut butter into a a medium size bowl. Add the icing sugar 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the vanilla and blend. Add the peanuts and mix until combined.
Use a cookie scoop to measure out the candy, roll it into a ball and flatten lightly. Place on top of the pretzels.
Cover with the second pretzels making sure the line up with the bottom pretzels.
Add the 2 tsp of butter to a small bowl, microwave on defrost for 45 seconds, add the melting chocolate wafers. Microwave on defrost for 3-4 minutes, stirring the chocolate occasionally to coat with the butter and help melt.
Once melted, spoon the chocolate on top of the pretzel sandwiches. Add a peanut to the top and place in the fridge to set.
If you enjoyed this pretzel candy recipe I would be very thankful if you pinned this to your recipe board or shared it with your friends.
If you want some other ideas using Peanut Butter, here are some different recipes I have posted.
Hubs favorite cookie is oatmeal, I dressed up my everyday oatmeal raisin recipe with peanut butter making a really soft and moist cookie.
This cookie recipe is a twist on the no bake chocolate cookies. This one features peanut butter.
This No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars recipe is so moist and good. Its very similar to a Nanaimo Bar, except the middle layer features peanut butter instead of custard.
Have an enjoyable day. Thank you for dropping by, Leanna
