No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

I’ve been working this week on a commercial so I’m a little behind, still haven’t posted all the goods from our Memorial Day barbeque like this one which was super easy and super yummy (although next time I’ll use semisweet chips instead of milk chocolate!), no bake so perfect for a summer treat, recipe from Six Sisters’ Stuff.

2 cups creamy peanut butter, divided into 3/4 cup and 1 1/2 cups

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

4 cups pretzels, broken into roughly 1/2″ pieces, divided into 3 cups and 1 cup

2 cups milk chocolate chips, divided into 1/2 cup and 1 1/2 cups

1  Line 9 x 9″ pan with foil leaving an overhang on 2 sides.  Lightly spray foil with cooking spray.

2  Beat 1 1/2 cups peanut butter and butter until creamy.  Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar.  Stir in remaining powdered sugar, 3 cups pretzel pieces and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.  Press evenly into prepared pan.

3  Microwave remaining 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and 3/4 cup peanut butter for 45 seconds, stir.  If necessary, microwave at additional 10 – 15 second intervals, stirring just until chips are melted.  Spread chocolate peanut butter mixture evenly over powdered sugar mixture.  Sprinkle with remaining pretzel pieces, pressing down lightly.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until firm.  Lift from pan, peel off foil and cut into pieces.  Store covered in fridge.
