It has taken me at least two weeks to make these absolutely "to-die-for" Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats. It has been a long two weeks trying to get our house to look like Christmas. I was determined to get that done before doing any holiday baking. (Even though these Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats aren't baked, you know what I mean.)

The recipe makes about 50 and let me tell you after eating just one, I could easily eat all 50 of them. They taste like a peanut butter cup sitting on a pretzel - a little bit of salt and a whole lot of sweet. I shall try to refrain as I hope to be able to treat several friends with some of these. 

They are so easy and definitely shouldn't be restricted to just making for the holidays. I melted Ghirardelli dark chocolate wafers, but you could use almond bark, chocolate chips, or even Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers.


1     cup peanut butter
1/2  cup butter, softened or at room temperature (1 stick)
3     cups powdered sugar
50   miniature pretzels
2     cups melted chocolate

In a mixing bowl, beat the peanut butter and butter together
until smooth.
Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the powdered sugar a little at time until
the mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper.
Place out some of the pretzels. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out a level tablespoon of the mixture. Place the scoop on top of the pretzel and lightly press down to adhere to the pretzel.
Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the peanut butter mixture sets up.
Melt the chocolate wafers/chips or whatever you are using by directions on the package.
Dip the peanut butter "ball" only in the chocolate.
Return to the wax-paper- lined cookie sheet and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. 

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 

Here is a picture of part of the living room where the tree is.
