Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

I’d like to take a minute and thank TLC for helping me to teach my children very important life lessons.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

The other day my kids and I were watching a cute show on TLC, then it ended and Hoarders began. It was like watching a train wreck. All of us sat there with our jaws in our laps, and a lightbulb went on in my head.

I took this opportunity to teach my children a valuable lesson. If they don’t pick up their toys, they will end up with a house filled with trash, roaches, and smelling like a dumpster when they grow up. Extreme? Maybe. Effective? Definitely.

After three hours of watching people who can’t part with so much as a gum wrapper, I started to notice a trend. If you pay close attention to the items piled high in these hoarder’s houses, you’ll notice it too.

Target bags.

I’m all for Target {don’t get me started on their clearance section}. But have you ever noticed that you end up walking out of there with more items then you intended on buying? I’m on to you, Target… and so are my kids.

Once Hoarders ended, My Strange Addiction started.

What the WHAT!?!?!

All I can say, is that there are some really crazy peeps out there. The first segment of the show was all about an older man and his strange creepy addiction to balloons. Um, yeah… I’m pretty sure my kids are over them. After our last balloon saga, all I can say is…

Thank you TLC!

In other news, I’ve decided it’s perfectly ok to reward yourself with a little treat when your living room floor is not buried under 3 feet of trash and Target bags filled with clearance items.

If you’re going to make a treat you might as well make these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites. These are ultra addicting so be prepared to hoard them for yourself…

Ingredients

  • 50 pretzels
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz Chocolate Almond Bark
  • Coarse Sea Salt

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the peanut butter, melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until incorporated and mixture is crumbly.
  • Lay out all the pretzels on a large piece of parchment paper. Take about 1/2 tsp of the peanut butter mixture and roll it into a ball. Place it on top of the pretzel. Repeat until finished (you can save any extra filling in plastic wrap in the freezer for later).
  • Use your finger to gently press the peanut butter mixture into the pretzel, making it slightly flat on top.
  • Melt the chocolate almond bark according to package instructions. Spoon the melted chocolate on top until it runs down the sides. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of coarse sea salt and let dry until firm.
  • Store at room temperature in an airtight container. Enjoy!
