Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites

Would you agree that chocolate + peanut butter + something crunchy = the absolutely perfect treat? If so, then I have found heaven for your little taste buds. Sink your teeth into a few of these gems & you'll be one happy camper! You could even add some sprinkles to add a bit of holidazzle. Just watch out because they are mighty addicting...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bites
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine peanut butter & softened butter in a large bowl with a fork or whisk, or in a stand mixer. Add the sugars & mix to combine. At this point if the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands you’re ready to go. If not, add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.

Use a teaspoon measure to scoop the filling. Roll each portion into a small ball, then sandwich them between two whole pretzels. When all the balls are rolled & successfully sandwiched, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.

Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl & heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer & quickly dip each half-way into the melted chocolate. Return to the tray & repeat with remaining sandwiches. When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely. Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time. Oh MY! Soooo amazing!

Haas Christmas Card 2011

truly he taught us to love one another,
his law is love & his gospel is peace
chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother
& in his name, all oppression shall cease

sweet hymns of joy, in grateful chorus raise we
with all our hearts, we praise his holy name
christ is the lord! forever we will praise thee
his power & glory ever more proclaim!
Christmas 2011
