These chocolate peanut butter pretzel bites are a perfect combination of sweet and salty. What could be better?
I am so excited to join my pal Barb from The Everyday Home in a virtual cookie exchange.
30 blogs. 30 cookies.
I can’t imagine a better way to start a season of joy than with a whole lot of yum!
I first tasted these Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites of deliciousness when my family surprised me with a 25th Anniversary Vow Renewal Service almost two years ago.
The surprise was amazing, our celebration unsurpassed and these cookies?
My new favorite!
Everyone needs a dessert that’s guaranteed to bring ooh’s and aah’s when served for company.
Yep. This is that dessert.
I added green and red sprinkles for the Christmas holiday, but you can use any color or leave them off entirely.
My youngest daughter made these for my homeschool moms party last night, and Tim and I had fun dipping them in chocolate.
Cookie baking should be a family affair, don’t you think?
Does your family like to cook or bake together?
Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 tbs butter softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 bag square pretzel snaps
- 1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat peanut butter and butter until combined.
- Add sugars and beat until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without sticking to your hands. Add more powdered sugar if needed to reach a good consistency for rolling.
- Roll the mixture into small balls, about one teaspoon of mixture. Sandwich between two pretzels and place on baking sheet.
- Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave on medium heat until smooth.
- Dip each pretzel bite halfway into melted chocolate and place back on prepared baking sheet.
- Store in refrigerator until ready to eat.
You can add sprinkles if you want to match the holiday or leave off. They're delicious either way!

Maryann, I know, you can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate can you? Sweet and salty wins it for me!
Oh these look scrumptious! All my favorite flavors
Thanks for sharing- without the red and green -I could make these all year long!

Dropping by to exchange cookies Marty;) You’re peanut butter bites are too cute and sounds so good.

These look wonderful! I love salty sweet combinations –
I love peanut butter! These look delicious. Perfect amount of salty, sweet, crunchy, and smooth. Adding to my recipe box for sure. Thanks for joining the cookie tour! Only problem with the tour is I’m hungry! 🙂 ~Jeanette
These sound so good! The combination of the peanut butter, salty crunch of the pretzel, and the chocolate has to be a winning combination. I like that they are no-bake, too.
My favorite kind of treat – salty and sweet. I’m thinking they’d be amazing in white chocolate, too, like those Ritz cracker thingies. Great photo, you Gawker pro.
Stopping by from the cookie exchange! These look so cute and tasty! I bet the combo of sweet & salty is great. Pinning for later 🙂
