Christmas treat

This was a really easy somewhat quick treat.  Its basically sweetened peanut butter squashed between two pretzels and dipped in chocolate.  I think you could almost streamline this even more by using little Reese Cups, heating them then squashing a pretzel on top.  You probably have everything you need to make this in your cupboard right now.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Treats

1 c peanut butter
1c powdered sugar
1 c brown sugar
small twist pretzels
1 bag chocolate chips

Mix together the peanut butter and the sugars until smooth.  Grease hands and roll mixture into a ball.  Place ball on top of one pretzel twist, top with another twist and press gently.  Chill for about thirty minutes.  Melt chips in the microwave.  Dip one end of chilled pretzel sandwich in melted chocolate, set on waxed paper, chill until firm.


From one small jar of peanut butter, I was able to make over 80 little treats, so this will make quite a bit, and they are a decent mouthful.  You could use white chocolate or milk chocolate if you prefer.  I wonder what it would taste like with almond butter?
