Foodie Friday: Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites #FoodieFebruary

This post is part of the Foodie Friday Blog Hop hosted by Talking MomcentsThis Hop is in celebration of Foodie February, and will be running every Friday, Saturday, Sunday for the month of February. Its a great way to find yummy new ideas, amazing tips and tricks, and some great blogs.

Something easy, something quick and delicious all at the same time. This is perfect. I've made these peanut butter pretzel bites a few times and every time I do they get eaten up like you wouldn't believe. Salty and sweet deliciousness, is what I call them. I made these last Friday because my daughter had a playdate and the girls just loved them. With the left over peanut butter mixture I had left I put in a bowl, cut up some celery and let the kids have at it. So good! They're pretty easy to make and the only time consuming part is putting these little bites together, but that goes by fast when you're listening to the entire Adele 21 album (for the millionth time, I LOVE HER!). Enjoy!

1 Cup of Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tbsp softened butter
3/4 -1Cup of brown sugar
3/4-1 Cup of powdered sugar
1 Bag Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (Optional. I did some with and without because my son loved the ones without the chocolate.)

  • Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl with a hand mixer, or with a fork/whisk or in a stand mixer.
  • Add the sugars and mix to combine.  (If the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands you’re ready to make your bites.  If not, add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
  • Use a teaspoon measure to scoop the filling.  Roll each portion into a small ball, then sandwich them between two whole pretzels.  When all the balls are rolled and successfully sandwiched, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.
  • Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted.  Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each half-way into the melted chocolate.  Return to the tray and repeat with remaining sandwiches.  When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely.  Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time.



  1. Ok those look sinful! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. These sounds so yummy! We have an ALL nut allergy in our house, but I could always make these and substitute with WowButter. Mmm.

  3. Oh my LaQuita, that's like a guilty pleasure right there. Peanut Butter and Chocolate are MADE for each other. Thanks for sharing and I suppose having one wouldn't hurt. :)

  4. Those would be perfect for me around PMS time, just a few would get my sweet and salty cravings taken care of. Saving your recipe!
