Chocolate + Peanut Butter Dipped Pretzels (See Jane Make)

Don’t be fooled by these treats.  I haven’t been hard at work making Christmas treats the past few weeks;  in fact, the only goodies I’ve made have been of the ‘no-bake’ genre.  These chocolate + peanut butter dipped pretzels exceptionally easy to make, as you might have guessed.  Simply melt chocolate in a double-boiler, add a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter (to taste) and stir until melted.  Then, dip the pretzels halfway in the chocolate/peanut butter mixture and set on parchment paper and refrigerate to set.

One may look at these Flipz knockoffs and wonder why I consider these a holiday dessert.  My mom, sisters, and I have been making these half-dipped pretzels at Christmas time for as long as I can remember.  Sure, we always baked/decorated the obvious, frosted sugar cookies, but I loved that we accompanied the expected with some unexpected treats.  We also always make pecan shortbread and saltine toffee cookies along with these chocolate + peanut butter dipped pretzels, just to name a few.

  1. Delish! My Mom has been making the peanut butter blossoms for as long as I can remember! (peanut butter sugar cookie with the hershey kiss in the middle.) They are my FAV! I love the holiday traditions.

  2. I love the combination of salty and sweet. It's so tasty! Adding these to my list of treats that I'll be making (or at least attempting) this weekend and all next week until Christmas!

  3. I love anything that's salty and sweet. And peanut butter + chocolate= heaven to me. I have to try these! It's always fun to have unexpected sweets around during the holidays. Your saltine toffee cookies also sound amazing!

  6. I've been scrambling to come up with a hostess gift for a party this weekend… and now my problems are solved. The girl LOVES pretzels, and obviously chocolate, so I'm going to get straight on to making some of these! Amazing idea!

  7. These look delicious annnnd easy to make. I was pondering making hot fudge for my coworkers but it's sort of tricky and the recipe makes a LOT of fudge. Like a dozen mason jars of fudge. I wonder how many I could eat with a spoon…not sure that's something I want to find out. But all I need for this is chocolate bars, peanut bitter and pretzels??

    My family eats chinese food christmas eve, which is kind of weird. But it's probably our most steady tradition over the years!
