I was seaching for a snack that would satisfy an afternoon craving for salty and sweet. I found the perfect thing. I did the chocolate dipped pretzel thing before forholidayss and glammed them up with sprinkles and crushed candy but never did I sandwich them with a creamy filling . I wonder if they would travel well if I go to a trip…hmm.
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 semi-sweet Bakers Chocolate Baking Bar OR chocolate melts
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
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.
Sandwich balls between two pretzels and place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 10 minutes.
While the pretzel bites are chilling, break up the chocolate and melt for about 1 minute in mircrowave, 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.
