No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

It's been a while since I've posted a recipe, mainly because I've been relying more and more on Ryan Barrett Walkush to cook for the family while my knee heals.

However, I did wrangle up these super-easy, no bake bars recently, and this recipe is a keeper. Hardly any ingredients, easy to put together, and a winning combination of peanut butter and chocolate!


No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
Bars:
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 cups pretzel crumbs
1 cup confectioners sugar
Topping:
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 Tbsp peanut butter

  1. Line a 2 quart 8" X 11 1/2" with aluminum foil, leaving approximately 2 inches to overhang on each long side. Spray pan with baking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix pretzel crumbs, melted butter, 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, and confectioners sugar. Spread evenly into prepared pan and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes while you prepare topping.
  3. Combine semi-sweet chocolate chips and 4 Tbsp peanut butter and microwave, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth (about 1 minute).
  4. Spread evenly over the peanut butter layer and refrigerate at least one hour.
  5. Use aluminum foil flaps to remove from pan. Cut into squares. Refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving.



Notes:
To create pretzel crumbs, whirl pretzels in a food processor and then measure out 3 cups of crumbs.

Approximately 3/4 of a 16 oz bag of pretzels created 3 cups of pretzel crumbs.
