Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

I just received this recipe from a High School friend and I had to post it on the Blog. You can't beat the combination of Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Pretzels. I enter an annual Holiday Cookie Contest in Dallas and inevitably someone enters a cookie with those three ingredients in them.
I want to thank my friend Linda B. for sharing this with me.
I've adapted the recipe without changing the integrity of the original one.
These will definitely be on our Holiday Menu this season.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

Here's what you'll need:
Sheet Pans lined with Parchment Paper.

1 C Creamy Peanut Butter
3/4 C Brown Sugar
2 TBS Butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
Miniature Pretzels
1 Bag of Milk or Dark Chocolate Chips

In a medium mixing bowl with an electric hand mixer:
Peanut Butter
Beat until well combined.

Brown Sugar
Confectioner's Sugar
Mix by hand until a small ball can be rolled in your hand without sticking. Add additional Confectioner's Sugar to get the right consistency.

Roll balls and sandwich them between 2 Pretzels.
Place them on the Sheet Pan.
Freeze them for 3 - 5 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a Microwave safe Glass Bowl or in a double boiler.

Remove Pretzels from freezer.
Dip each one half way into the melted chocolate.
Place them back onto the Sheet Pan and set aside until they're set.

Peace in the Kitchen!
