Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pretzel Sticks



It's Food Friday!

I always make these this time of year and I always intend on giving them as gifts. Think how cute they would look in a holiday tin or with colorful cellophane tied with pretty ribbons. But, I'm embarrassed to admit that they never make it that far. In fact, I made half a batch one night with plans to take the picture the next day. Well, the next day I ended up having to make more because I didn't have enough for the picture. Hope everyone else enjoys these simple, easy treats as much as I do.

1 28 oz jar of peanut butter (I like Jif extra crunchy)
1 pkg chocolate almond bark
1 bag of pretzel rods (about 34)
crushed peanuts (you could also drizzle white chocolate)

So the chocolate is easy to work with, I usually do these in half batches. Melt half a package of chocolate almond bark in the microwave for about 90 seconds. Stir. You can do 15 seconds more if you think it needs it. And the process is simple: spread peanut butter on pretzel rod, spoon chocolate over it, lay on aluminum foil, sprinkle with nuts, and repeat 16 more times. Easy! And, of course, you can stop there if you don't trust yourself with a full batch in the house!

Enjoy!

I've made these quite a few times and every time I do I wonder why I don't make them more often. Your recipe with the peanut butter sounds delish! I'll have to give it a try.

That's funny about you eating them before getting a chance to take a photo, too often I do the same thing which is why I've gained so much weight. Thanks for sharing!

Little pup would love these--he's a big peanut butter fan! Big pup, on the other hand, would be very suspicious of them:)

OH MY - those look TOOOO good! I couldnt even attempt to make them - I'd eat every single one of them before giving them out!

These look like something that would be dangerous for me to have in my house. I'd eat them all and gain like 50 pounds or something. But I'm going to have to make them anyway, because they look so good!

Thanks for stopping by my site. :)
