  • Makes: 16 pretzel bites

Ingredients

32 original flavour pretzel crackers
⅔ cup (150 mL) peanut butter
½ cup (125 mL) milk, dark or white chocolate chips
2 tsp (10 mL) peanut or vegetable oil
Sprinkles, finely chopped peanuts or toffee bits

Directions

Lay 16 pretzel crackers on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Dollop about 1 heaping tsp (7 mL) of peanut butter on the centre of each. Top with remaining crackers, pressing gently to form 16 pretzel cracker bites.

Melt chocolate with oil in a double boiler or microwave, just until melted. Working with one filled peanut butter pretzel bite at a time, spoon chocolate over the pretzel just to coat, or dip directly into chocolate, letting excess drip back into the bowl. Set back on parchment-lined tray.

Immediately sprinkle chocolate part of pretzel bites with sprinkles, chopped peanuts or toffee bits. Refrigerate until chocolate has hardened, about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container, and either refrigerate or freeze.
