no-bake peanut butter pretzel bites

These no-bake peanut butter pretzel chocolate bites are like crack to me. I cannot get enough of them!! I'm a peanut butter fanatic anyway, so these, I knew were going to be a problem for me. Add to it the texture of the crispy, salty pretzel and the dip of milk chocolate and, OH. MY. GOSH. Yummy!

What's great is that you can make these all summer long and not turn on your oven and make them in a snap. 

Enjoy this delicious Pinterest find my friends and make them and eat them. Eat lots of them so I don't feel so glutenous. :)



1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp softened butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar 
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1 bag  semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl with a fork or whisk, or in a stand mixer.  Add the sugars and mix to combine.  At this point if the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands you’re ready to go.  If not, add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
Use a teaspoon measure to scoop the filling.  Roll each portion into a small ball, then sandwich them between two whole pretzels.  When all the balls are rolled and successfully sandwiched, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.
Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted.  Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each half-way into the melted chocolate.  Return to the tray and repeat with remaining sandwiches.  When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely.  Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time.
