Chocolate Peanut Pretzel Bites

We're baaaaaaack! We've both been too busy to have a proper Fat Friday in a MONTH. I'm sure you've all been going through withdrawal without our food posts showing up each week - constantly refreshing the blog page anxiously awaiting new recipes, am I right? Well, never fear, because we are back at it and have some delicious things to share with you again at last.

Peanut butter + pretzels + chocolate. Do I really even need to say more than that? Who doesn't love all those things?! And, guess what - these are even quick and easy. Just make them. Do it.

Also, we need to take a moment to show off our new recipe notebook and glazed-donut scented pens for Fat Friday use. You're all super jealous, right? You should be.

Chocolate Peanut Pretzel Bites

servings: about 18 pieces
time: 20 minutes prep, 1.5 hours total


  • 1 1/2 cups pretzel sticks, broken into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (whichever chocolate you like best - milk, semisweet, or dark. We used semisweet)
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • crumbled pretzel bits for garnish (optional)

  1. Put your pretzel sticks into a sealed bag and break them into small pieces with a rolling pin.
  2. In a small bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, sugars, and salt.
  3. Add pretzel bits and mix until combined.
  4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone baking mat. Using about 2 tsp of the mixture at a time, roll into balls and place on baking sheet.
  5. Chill for 30 minutes.
  6. Melt chocolate and shortening in your microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.
  7. Using a fork, dip each chilled ball into the chocolate and roll until thoroughly coated. Return to baking sheet.
  8. Sprinkle with crushed pretzel if desired.
  9. Chill for 30 more minutes.
  10. Serve! Store any uneaten bites in the refrigerator.
