I must say, I’m not a total chocolate lover but, occasionally I do enjoy the whole chocolate and peanut butter combo. I had seen something very similar the other day on Facebook and thought ummm?? YES Please?? So I decided to make my own version. Very similar to the way I make my PB and Chocolate truffles but, flat and with pretzels added. This is a total no bake recipe and is super easy to make and just SO GOOD!!!
2 bags semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
1 bag peanut butter chips
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
3 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
12-13 pretzel rods
Pour 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1/4 bag of peanut butter chips into a bowl. Microwave on high for about 1 1/2 minutes removing and stirring half way through. Pour melted mixture into a 8×8 Square pan.
Place about 12-13 pretzel rods on top of melted chocolate and peanut butter-mixture.
Melt butter and peanut butter in microwave on high. Stir together and mix in both granulated and powdered sugar. Scoop PB mixture onto pretzel rods spreading and pressing down to smooth and fit.
Melt the other bag of chocolate chips and 1/4 more of the PB chips the same way as the first. Pour over PB spread.
Melt about a half cup of peanut butter chips in a bowl microwaved on high. Once melted, dollop melted PB chips over top. Using a toothpick, swipe horizontally and vertically to make swirls.
Freeze for about a 1/2 hr. Cut into squares and enjoy.
Makes approx 16 bars depending on big or small you decide to cut them
Prep time: about 10-12 mins
