When it comes to decadent desserts that are easy, y’all know I am first in line. Last week I made the 4 ingredient Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies. Months ago I made the Raspberry Almond “Cheesecake” for Two and Jorge is still begging me to make it again! And just a couple weeks ago, I made the {Low Fat} Dr. Pepper Brownies (again made with just 4 ingredients)! I mean, hello, I obviously love easy desserts!

There are many bloggers who only use 100% homemade recipes, 100% of the time. And I am just not that girl…that’s some hard work, yo! Sure, sometimes I am the queen of complicated and will actually savor the process of making a decadent layered cake from scratch…but sometimes I just need a big bite of deliciousness in my mouth in 15 minutes. And I don’t think that’s too much to ask for!

The dream of divine desserts in under 15 minutes is totally reasonable and achievable with recipes like this. For these little darlings, you don’t even have to temper the chocolate -unless you are a glutton for punishment and just want to. I used the Original flavored pretzels from Pretzel Crisps® for a few reasons. First, they are adorable and I love how they are flattened -it makes for a better bite! But I also love the low calories & zero fat/transfat/satfat health benefits. I buy my Pretzel Crisps® in the deli section of Publix, but you can even pick up a bag on amazon if you are feeling extra lazy!

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites don’t even have to be refrigerated and are perfect for the upcoming summer BBQs. …just whip up a batch and let your guests dive in!

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

These babies are fast, easy and don't have to be refrigerated!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 48 Pretzel Crisps® Original Pretzels
  • 10 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • fluer de sal, to taste

Directions:

In a stand mixer, combine peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, and powdered sugar -till well combined.

Roll peanut butter mixture in 1 inch balls and smash in-between two pretzels.

In a medium bowl, microwave semi-sweet chocolate in 15 second increments, until melted.

Line countertops with wax paper and dip half of pretzel sandwiches in melted chocolate and set on wax paper. Sprinkle with fluer de sal and let chocolate harden.

Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

 

I was given free pretzels from Pretzel Crisps® to try, but my obsession with them was not paid for. 😉 …meaning all opinions are 100% my own.
