pretzel buckeyes.



Peanut butter + chocolate = pure bliss

^^
That right there is my favorite math equation. Ever. 

I have recently been enjoying peanut butter on a spoon and sprinkling chocolate chips on top. I read that on a food blog somewhere but can't remember which blog! Thank you to whoever shared that simple idea. I also love melting peanut butter and chocolate chips and dipping apple slices in it. And these. I love these.

They are simple and delicious- salty and sweet at the same time. A perfect bite sized treat. Grant who doesn't even like the pb+chocolate combination liked these- VICTORY!

I got this recipe from my sister's blog and I couldn't get enough- enjoy!!

pretzel buckeyes 

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar + extra (if needed)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • Pretzels
  • 12 ounce bag chocolate chips (semi sweet or milk chocolate)
Directions:
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper, baking mat, or parchment. Set aside. Beat together peanut butter and butter with an electric mixer until well combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl, add powdered sugar and brown sugar, and beat again until fully mixed.  You don't want the dough to stick to your fingers so add more powdered sugar as needed. 
  2. Roll peanut butter mixture into balls of about 1-2 teaspoons each and sandwich between two pretzels. Or alternately, you could spoon a dollop of the peanut butter mixture onto the pretzel and stack another pretzel on top. Place on prepared baking sheet and repeat until peanut butter mixture is gone. Place baking sheet in freezer for 30 minutes.
  3. When nearing the end of the 30 minute period, melt chocolate in a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave, as directed on package. You want the chocolate as smooth as possible. Dip each pretzel sandwich halfway into the melted chocolate and return to baking sheet. Refrigerate or freeze until chocolate is set.
  4. The original recipes says these freeze well but we didn't need to do that ;)

  1. I agree with that math equation. They should teach that in the early years of schooling and maybe more people would be interested in math.
