Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Sticks

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Sticks recipe

Alright, guys. I couldn’t help myself. I had to squeeze in one last Christmas treat for you to make!

And before you take one look at the picture and click away, let me assure you that these are not your average pretzel sticks! I’ve tried dipping pretzel sticks in melted peanut butter and then melted chocolate, but I never got the right ratio of peanut butter. I like my pretzel sticks to be loaded with peanut butter! That’s why I just use a knife and spread peanut butter on as thick as I can.

Spreading the peanut butter with a knife makes these super fast and easy to make. The kids loved helping me make these. I let them do most of the work while I sat back and hoovered these in. Such an easy treat!

So, spill it…are y’all done making your Christmas candies and cookies or are you still doing some last minute baking? I thought I was done, but then we got iced in and I started baking again. It’s getting kind of ridiculous in here. My dishwasher is about to give up the fight, my husband is getting concerned about me, and my kids are in heaven. It’s all chocolate, all the time.

One more recipe for you this week and then I’ll probably take some time off to spend with the family. I hope you all do the same and enjoy the holidays!

    My Mom makes caramel chocolate pretzels that are delicious! I bet chocolate and peanut butter would be just as good.

    I might dunk the finished pretzels in peanut butter again. Because I’m pretty sure two PB layers is always better than one.

    These look fabulous. Chocolate covered pretzels are my husband’s favorite. Dipped in peanut butter plus the chocolate makes them even better. I would be snacking on these non-stop.

    You can never have too much peanut butter! I love the chocolate covered, peanut butter filled pretzels from Trader Joes – I love this homemade version!
