My Holiday Baking Contribution

I'm limiting myself to one baked good this year.  I've been dying to try this recipe that I found on Karly Campbell's blog, Buns In My Oven.

Enter, Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites:

I haven't tried it yet, but I wanted to share with you all before the last minute.  Make these for your next holiday party or take them to family Christmas.  I'm sure they'll fly off the plate!

Let me know if you have any suggestions after making them. xoxo

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
recipe from Foodaphilia by way of bunsinmyoven
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1/2 – 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 – 1 cup brown sugar
  • Pretzels
  • 1 bag  semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine the peanut butter, butter, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and 3/4 cup of brown sugar in a mixer. Beat until well combined. Add more sugar as needed to get the mixture to a consistency where you can easily roll it without it sticking to your hands. If the mixture gets too sweet, add 1/4 tsp of salt to cut the sweetness.

Roll the mixture into small balls (about 1 tsp of the mixture for each ball). Sandwich the balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a double broiler or carefully in a microwave. Dip one half of each sandwich into the chocolate mixture to coat and then set aside. Repeat with all the sandwiches and then place them back in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened back up. Store in the fridge.


  1. they look great...
    how do they taste?

  2. I am going to attempt to make these for Christmas, they look awesome!

  3. They were great! I used Ghiradelli 60% dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet. The peanut butter filling has plenty of sweet on its own.
