Five ingredients. That’s all you need to make a batch of these salty-sweet bites that didn’t last a day in our kitchen. Something about the combination of crisp pretzels, creamy peanut butter, and rich chocolate makes these easy no-bake desserts a sweet comfort food.
Even better—I’ll bet you already have everything you need to make them!
Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
- 1 cup crushed pretzels
- ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
- One-third cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 8 oz milk chocolate, melted
In a large mixing bowl combine the pretzels, peanut butter, sugar, and butter. Stir well until the mixture comes together in a cohesive ball. Roll 1 Tbsp scoops of the mixture between your palms to form about 24 even balls. Arrange on a plate or cutting board and freeze for 30 minutes.
Dip the frozen balls in melted chocolate to coat and set on a cooling rack or parchment paper until the chocolate becomes firm. Store in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Makes about 20 pieces.
