Yield:
10 to 12 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 2 cups pretzel rods, crushed into crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup plus 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
Directions

In a medium bowl, add the melted butter, pretzel crumbs, confectioners' sugar and 1 cup of the peanut butter and stir together until well combined. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking dish. Combine the chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate and peanut butter are melted and smooth; two intervals should be enough. Mix to blend, then spread over the peanut butter-pretzel layer. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.

Loved these no bake bars ! I needed to add about 3 cups of pretzels to get the right consistency. Not sure why since I followed the recipe to the T. Also I accidentally bought semi-sweet morsels instead of the milk chocolate and I they came out perfect ! Not too sweet at all !!! Thanks Trisha for another HIT !! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I may have to add another cup of pretzels next time because the consistency was looser than expected. item not reviewed by moderator and published
