Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Treats

Sharing is caring!

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.

  1. Just the thought of pretzels and chocolate makes my mouth water. What a brilliant combination of awesomeness. I think I may just try this one. It sounds easy (my kinda recipe) and my hubby is a peanut butter addict too. He’ll eat the stuff out of the bottle while we watch TV, so these will go down a treat.
