Chocolate Covered PB Pretzel Bites

It’s unbelievable how addicting these pretzel bites are! I’ve made them three times in the past month and people beg me for the recipe every time I make them. I can hardly even call this a “recipe,” so I never really thought to post it on the blog.

But enough friends have requested I share my chocolate peanut buttery pretzel treats, so here they are today.

Chocolate covered pretzels are a staple in my house. They are my go-to treat for nearly every occassion. No-bake, ready in minutes, and perfect to satisfy my sweet and salty cravings. Well, combine said chocolate pretzels with a thick (and I mean THICK) layer of peanut butter filling and you’ve got yourself one addicting little bite-sized treat.

I’ve made them with pretzel squares and regular mini pretzels, and both are equally as delicious!   If you want to impress people, but save on time and effort, you should need to make these. They are SO easy – they take less than 30 minutes!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites (7 of 1)

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 60 pretzels
  • two 4 ounce Bakers semi-sweet chocolate bars, coarsely chopped


  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix together peanut butter and butter with a spoon. Stir in sugars until thick dough forms. Roll peanut butter dough into 30 small balls. If it is too sticky, add more powdered sugar.
  3. Sandwich balls between two pretzels and place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
  4. While the pretzel bites are chilling, melt chopped chocolate for about 1 minute in microwave, stopping and stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the pretzel bites halfway into the melted chocolate and place bite back on baking sheet. Refrigerate the dipped bites for at least 10 minutes for chocolate to set.
  5. Pretzel bites are fresh up to 10 days stored in the refrigerator. Bites can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

  2. I’ve made them today and let me say, it’s definitely one of the most delish things I’ve ever eaten!!! I love pb and I think the combination with chocolate and pretzels is just PERFECT! Thanks for this awesome recipe!!!

  3. I have made these before for two different parties. They are such a hit, they disappear within minutes and people are begging for the recipe! This one is a winner everytime!

  4. Made these today but with a twist. I added 3 shots of jack Daniels whiskey to the peanut butter mix. Taste great and has a kick.

  5. Just made these and they are DELICIOUS. Going to hide them from my family and keep them all for myself! 🙂 Another amazing recipe, Sally. You’re the best!

  6. In the process of making these now, I cheated a little and added 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips in with the pb

  7. Hi Sally! I LOVE your recipes — most specifically how easy you make the baking/ cooking process for people who have recently gotten into it. I just published a blog post citing you and wanted to share 🙂


  8. These were fab!  I hate to be “that” person trying to make everything healthy 🙂 but I have to share what I tried cause it worked out super well!  My hubby and I have been trying to avoid processed sugar so instead of adding any sugar, I just added about 4-5 tablespoons of pure maple syrup.  I remember reading somewhere that mixing it vigorously with natural peanut butter makes the pb harden up.  And it worked!  It definitely was still too soft to roll into balls, but I just scooped it on a pretzel with a spoon and it held really well.  I continued following the recipe as written and they were fantastic!  Just had to share in case anyone’s looking to cut down on some sugar.  Thanks!!

  9. I’ve made these a couple of times for different crowds/occasions and they’re always a hit (I don’t remember which peanut butter brand I used-but most likely Skippy)! However, this most recent time I couldn’t quite get the peanut butter mixture to the right consistency. I added plenty powdered sugar and put the mixture in the freezer but it was still very soft and posed a challenge when forming the balls. Any advice or feedback on peanut butter brands would be helpful. I used Jif which must have a higher oil content. I found it made the mixture too runny. I will try the maple syrup trick mentioned in the thread…

  10. Hi! I’ve made these several times now, and they are always a hit. Thank you for sharing this recipe 😀
    The only change I made the first time was to use already-chocolate-coated pretzels, because I had no chocolate to melt at the time. :/
    But it turned out so great that the next time I experimented and used the vanilla-yogurt-covered pretzels instead!
    We couldn’t decide which way we liked them more so we finally settled on a chocolate pretzel on one side and a yogurt pretzel on the other.
    Bonus: two colors makes the plate so pretty!
    Thank you again.

  11. Just made these for afterschool treats…amazingly yummy!! I followed the instructions and they turned out perfectly. Definitely going into my “Tried and True, Make Again” pinterest board!! Thanks!

  12. I hunted and hunted for this recipe. One of my coworkers frequently brings in treats, and he has brought these in twice. So delicious. I will make for holiday treats, and know my family will love them.
