This Is One Of My Favorite Easy Dessert Recipes

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!

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites Recipe

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!

What Type Of Pretzels Are Best For This Recipe?

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!

    Just made a batch of 33 of these cookies. Here’s what I’ve learned:
    1. Buy two bags of Pretzel Crisps; save the broken pieces for another recipe.
    2. It takes at least 5 squares of 10 oz. semisweet chocolate, diluted with 1 Tbls of water.
    3. Dipping is easier if you use a narrow container (coffee cup) to melt the chocolate.
    3. Mold/flattened the ball of peanut butter mixture (PBM) in the palm of your left hand and then cup your hand to make it release more easily without tearing.
    4. GENTLY press the PBM onto one crisp, top it with another and FIRST press in the sides of the mixture to join the crisps before GENTLY and simultaneously pressing down on both sides of the cookie — never press them together in the middle or one of the crisps will crack.
    5. Don’t sprinkle on the salt until all the cookies are assembled; otherwise, the hot/warm chocolate will melt the flakes of salt.

    Am I the only one extremely disappointed?  After making the peanut butter mix, I opened the bag of pretzel crisps … I don’t know what the grocery person did, but well over half the bag was broken pieces.  The whole ones that I worked with tended to break  when I tried to make the “sandwich” … then my chocolate was so thick it kind of just blobbed on there … I tried to spread it around some,  Sadly I ended up throwing most of the stuff out … my most frustrating night in the kitchen in a long time ….

      Regular sea salt will be fine too, however fluer de sal is a super flaky french sea salt. It’s great, but you can also use regular sea salt if you want!

    There is no way I could “smash” a one inch ball of dough between the pretzels, they are so thin and delicate that they just cracked 🙁
    Added a bit more butter and peanut butter, then made dough patties which worked just fine between the pretzels.
    Thanks for the great recipe!

      Hey Richelle,

      You can find it at most nicer grocery stores…so down here in Florida I can find it at Publix, The Fresh Market, and Whole Foods. I can even usually find it at World Market.

    I never thought nothing could be better than a banana and peanut butter combo….until I stumbled upon your recipe. This is way cooler…Yum! Yum! Thanks for sharing!

    Here I am trying to forget about the chocolate chips I have sitting in my freezer (I think if they are frozen I am less likely to eat them, does not work) and I see something like this! You are killing my self control…

    After following you and Tina on Instagram this weekend, it’s no secret you have an obsession with these pretzel crisps! 🙂 Job well done on this recipe for them! Score!

  7. sally @ sally's baking addiction

    I LOVE these, I have made them over and over again and are always my #1 requested treat! I’ve never tried them with pretzel crisps though. I love that idea Jessica! Sweet + salty, I never go wrong with these chocolate covered pb pretzel bites!

  8. Tina (My Life as a Mrs)

    love. love. LOVE. (these… and YOU!) Had a blast with you girl & am looking forward to a couples vacay! 😉

  9. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious

    Oh my, now this is a snack! Yeah, I’ll have to take a break from the wheat thins and quinoa tortilla chips and devour these!

  10. Maggie @ A Bitchin' Kitchen

    Holy crap, do these look awesome!

    I am a ginormous fan of any kind of sweet + salty dessert!

  11. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme

    I am obsessed with pretzel crisps! I munch on them all the time. Definitely need to whip these up!

  12. Katie from Katie's Cucina

    These look and sound divine! I love pretzel bites but never thought to smear them in peanut butter and dip them in chocolate! Love!

  13. The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh

    I make something similar but I like the pretzel crisps instead!

    Why did my brain process “serve” immediately as “EAT” immediately!?

  14. Cassie

    Oh my gosh how cute are these? I thing I’ll be making some tonight because I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about them. Love these. Have a blast in Seattle!

  15. Ashley Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    You took snack food and made it look so gourmet! That’s like a Top Chef challenge! Well done 🙂

  16. Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker

    Great minds think alike! The other night I was desperate for a snack and had a big bag of those pretzel crisps from Sam’s Club, and made sandwiches with peanut butter. Now if only I had some chocolate to dip them in 😉

  17. Jessica@AKitchenAddiction

    Yum. These look amazing! I love anything with pretzels and peanut butter and having them dipped in chocolate is an added bonus!

  18. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    I really think there can be a perfect balance of easy recipes with short cuts and complicated 100% from scratch recipes. Besides, I wouldn’t want to wait long to eat these!

  19. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    They look fabulous…and my go-to snack for the last 20 years has been Triscuits with a big smear of PB. Not that far off from the pretzel crackers you used. Sometimes I’ll put chocolate chips on top the PB. And I love what you just said about not making every.single.thing from scratch or making a big production out of everything. 100% agreed!!!
