Valentine Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

I found this fun recipe/picture on Pintrest.  I LOVE Pintrest!!  This recipe is from Mommy's Kitchen.  Please visit Mommy's Kitchen blog - She does monthly menu planning - you will love it.

These yummy Valentine Pretzel Bites could me adapted for any holiday or any event.  The combination of sweet/salty is just perfect.  I am a huge peanut butter/chocolate fan - these are perfect.  I am mailing a few to my college aged daughters!  I hope they love them too!!

Valentine Pretzel Bites ( adapted from Mommy's Kitchen)


2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick  butter, softened
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 (12 - 16 oz) pkg of good quality chocolate almond bark
Valentine sprinkles


In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, butter, peanut butter and vanilla,  Mix well to form a dough.  Add a little more powdered sugar if needed.  Using a small cookie scoop, make little balls of dough.  Scoop out one scoopful of dough and break in half.  Roll each half into ball and sandwich between two pretzels.  When all of the balls are rolled and sandwiched between pretzel, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about 45 minutes.  Melt the chocolate almond bark in the microwave - for one minute and stir and then another minute and stir - until melted and smooth.  Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and dip each half-way into the melted chocolate.  Add festive sprinkles.  Store the peanut butter bites in the refrigerator until serving time.  Makes approximately 45 bites.

**I had extra OREOS in my pantry.  I submerged them in chocolate, drained off the excess and sprinkled half with Valentine sprinkles - another fun treat!!
