So here is how my Salty Sweet Pretzle treat came out! I had a house full of girls yesterday, Chloe and Meagan both wanted a bunch of their friends over and they were after me to make them something 'yummy'. I saw a recipe for these little gems over at Pinterest and thought I would give them a try! They came out YUMMY! lol! One of the kiddies said she didn't like peanut butter but managed to wolf down 4 of them!...so that tells you how addictive they are! ROFL! I even managed to get a few of the little posers to let me take a pic of them!....
Here is the recipe if anyone wants to try them (brace yourselves, the calories count on this one is massive lol! but I always say, allow yourself a little bite of something yummy, you don't have to eat the whole batch yourself! lol!):
Salty Sweet Peanutbutter Pretzle Treats
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons softened butter
bag of salted pretzles
1 cup dark chocolate (I used semi-sweet chippets)
1. In a mixer combine the first 4 ingrediants and whip till well combined. I let mine whip a few minutes to get the brown sugar to disolve a little better.
2. Lay out a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet and lay out rows pretzles. Form smallish 3/4 inch balls of filling and lay on the pretzles, sandwich another pretzle on top. Put in the freezer for about a half hour to firm up. Note: you may need to add some extra icing sugar to get a better consistancy to roll out the balls (I dusted my hands with a little icing sugar to make the rolling easier)
3. Melt the chocolate in a microwave on high for about 1 minute 20 seconds, (thats about the time it took to melt mine....microwave longer if needed but keep a close eye on it so you dont scorch it)......dip pretzle bites into chocolate and put back on tray to chill. ....I sprinkled a bit of extra sea salt on the chocolate before it hardened, just because I like the salt with chocolate, it really enhances the flavour.
