Oh YUM! This is not my creation, but boy is it easy, yummy, only takes a few ingredients and you don’t have to bake it –YEA!!!!

I was watching the Food Network channel and Tricia Yearwood made a no-bake dessert. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make –the only time involved really is letting it set up in the refrigerator 2-3 hours. I had to improvise a bit as I didn’t have the large pretzel rods like she used, & I only had half as much peanut butter as her recipe called for –so I halved the recipe and used the tiny twisted pretzels. Also used semi-sweet instead of milk chocolate chips.

How to Make Improvised Pretzel Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. LINE an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with foil leaving an overhang on two sides. Lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. BEAT 3/4 cup peanut butter and the butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
  3. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1-3/4 cup pretzel pieces and 1/2 cup morsels.
  4. Press evenly into prepared baking pan. Smooth top with spatula or back of a tablespoon.
  5. MICROWAVE remaining 1/2 cups morsels and 1/4 cup peanut butter in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
  6. Spread peanut butter/chocolate layer evenly over powdered sugar mixture.

    Sprinkle with the remaining pretzel pieces, pressing down lightly.
  7. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; peel off foil.

    Cut into 20-24 pieces (Depending on size). Store in covered container in refrigerator.
  8. Have one! I am taking the ones that I made today to work tomorrow. One reason is that they love treats! The other reason is that if I keep them at home they will call my name until I eat them all myself. LOL! Enjoy.
