indulge yourself

About this time of year I start to crave the best chocolaty treats. Lucky for me, I found such a yummy new recipe on Pinterest. it is the perfect mix of salty & sweet, & takes no time at all!

Go here for even more delicious recipes to try! Pinterest linked us to this blog with the simple instructions.

Yield 60 – 80 pretzel bites
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 bag  semi-sweet chocolate chips (or dark.. which I love!)
Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl with a fork or whisk, or in a stand mixer.  Add the sugars and mix to combine.  At this point if the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands you’re ready to go.  If not, add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll (about 3/4 cup of each sugar).
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.

I can't wait to try this out! I know what I'll be making for our next family get together :)

Happy Saturday!
