Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

Disclaimer: I know I’ve previously posted a recipe with this same title. In practically EVERY case, I have made every recipe on this site. On occasion, I get one from someone and assume it is good. I received this recipe and it wasn’t exactly as I would have liked or imagined. I have a wonderful peanut butter ball recipe (which came from my mother-in-law) that I use for making Christmas candy each year. So I put it to use and the result was fabulous. For that reason, I am reposting this as my own version…. which I of course feel is much better. The peanut butter is extremely smooth and super delicious!

Makes about 60 bites or so depending on the size you roll the balls.

Filling ingredients:

2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 tbsp softened butter (not margarine)

Waffle shaped pretzels (squares or rounds)

Melting chocolate


Put filling ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined and smooth. (Sorry about the picture. Had to use an old camera for it since my other one was charging!)

The result will be a semi-stiff, but still soft dough. Should not stick to your hands. If it does, add a tiny bit of powdered sugar. (Again, sorry for the bad picture.)Roll into balls. Not too big. About 3/4 of an inch or a little less. (Yeah, battery finally charged! Boy there is sure a difference.)Put between pretzels to make a sandwich.Put in freezer for about an hour or until firm.

Get chocolate ready for dipping.

Dip each “bite” only half way into the chocolate and set on wax paper to set up. Keep in fridge until ready to serve.

I think these would be fun to dip in white chocolate colored for the holidays. There are many possibilities!
