Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

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!

Description

Simply addicting and easy-to-make chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel bites!


Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

  1. If frozen and thawed, will the pretzels taste stale? I need to make a dessert for a very large crowd and want to start on them a few days early. I need to impress and don’t want them to end up soggy or stale.

    1. Hi Tiffany, If you thaw them overnight in the fridge rather than leave them out at room temperature to thaw, they should still taste great! Going from frozen right to room temperature could cause condensation which could make them soggy.

  2. What is the purpose of using brown sugar and confectioners sugar?

    Thank you very much!!

    1. Hi Angeline! To sweeten the cookie dough. The brown sugar adds that quintessential cookie dough flavor and confectioners’ sugar helps keep the dough thick.

  3. Can semi-sweet chocolate chips be substituted?

  4. Do you have to refrigerate these? Making these for a treat at the shore with a house full of folks…. I was hoping to leave them out on the table for the purpose of grazing

      Hi Susan, They should be fine if left out for the day. However if it’s warm in the house the chocolate may begin to melt/get soft but you can always just pop them back in the refrigerator if that happens. Enjoy!
