  • 1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter Softened
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • Mini Pretzels
  • 1 Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat.

  2. In a medium bowl, cream peanut butter and butter until just evenly combined. Add both sugars and continue beating until combined (Don't overbeat).  The consistency of the mixture should allow you to handle it and roll into small balls.  If it's too sticky, add more powdered sugar until you reach a consistency that you can easily roll.  Roll mixture into small balls, using about 1 teaspoon of filling, and set on the prepared baking sheet. Sandwich balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on low for 30-second intervals until smooth.  Dip each pretzel sandwich halfway into melted chocolate and place on the baking sheet.  Chill in the fridge until chocolate is set.
