No-Bake Chocolate-Pretzel-Peanut Butter Squares

Total Time:
1 hr 17 min
16 min
1 hr
1 min

10 to 12 servings

  • 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

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.

    This looks qute easy, will try in a bit. I'm writing because NOW I know why people are annoyed about the endless LINKS which have been added. WHY did you change the better format? The links make it very difficult to read the original recipe; those of us with vision problems, do NOT appreciate all this extraneous and unnecessary information!!! PLEASE TAKE THOSE OUT!!!!!!
    Love these! Had no trouble at all- just followed directions. I keep them in the freezer after I cut them up - deelish!
    I've never reviewed any recipe before, but after reading some of the reviews, especially regarding how difficult it was to get these out of the pan, I felt compelled to review this recipe. These are super delish and super easy! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out of the pan completely clean after about 90 minutes in the fridge.
    Oh so yummy! I used one&one half sticks butter and after crushed pretzels to equal about two cups. Also used parchment paper to line dish. 
    Hope this is helpful for all those questions about measurments. I think you can't ruin this dish even if you are a bitt off. Love this and must stop eating them and give some away!!!!!!!!!
    These are delicious and so addictive! Great treat to take to a potluck or get together.
    I'm with SFDOC124 on the print format. On two recipes I've left out ingredients because I loose my place in the text. Recipe itself is great.
    i just want to say I went to the store after it aired tried this omg can u say yummy to my tummy so easy it was great like mfo721 said I didn't use so main pretzels put it worked next I will double on them then it will be just right everyone need to try
    I doubled the pretzels in this recipe to get the right consistency. our boys were luke-warm about these; so they will definitely be going back to college with our oldest daughter who loves peanut butter and chocolate ~ these are definitely tasty, we just have fussy boys!
    Great tasting and so easy. I reduced the sugar by 1/2 cup and it was plenty sweet. Will make again and again, and again, etc.
    Huge hit at my house! I used crunchy PB which made them extra crunchy. Also added Nutella instead of PB to the chocolate because we love Nutella. Will definitely make these again and again! Very easy recipe. Would be great for kids to make.
    We love your recipes but we don't like the new format op printing them. 
    why do you insert all the links in the recipes?
    I'm with you, HATE this new format.
    I love this recipe! It is like a rese cup, only 13x9.......Yum!
    Why no picture????
    YUM! Quick and easy to make and so very yummy! Highly recommend this recipe 5Stars for sure!!
    A Winner! Both easy and delicious...I made them for a New Year's party, and they vanished!
    OMG! These are fabulous and so easy. I made them 3 times and gave them as gifts along with the other stuff I made. A real keeper!
    OMg !! it was great to eat. great to make and Easy.. Trisha reciped rocked!! I added about another cup of pretzel..great Christmas recipe.. will be a yearly candy/bar.. Merry Christmas to Trisha & family. and to the Food Network ..Happy Holidays!! Mary R. from Iowa!
    I have been weary of Trisha's recipes but these looked to die for so I tried them. I did add two cups of crushed pretzels (after crushing) and used semi-sweet chocolate as it was all I had on hand. They turned out delicious. They were mildly crumbly but that's what made them good with the rest of the creamy! My guests requested to take them home. A winner of a recipe. Thanks Trisha!
    smell so good, have them in the frig, planning on cutting them tomorrow, do you have to keep them refrigerated after you cut them? 
    Very good!
    This was great, everyone loved it. I made it three times already.
    The best and easiest receipe ever !!!!!! So delicious, the kids were talking about them at the party. My grandchildren were like "My Nana made these, aren't they the greatest ??!!!" Thanks Trisha !!!!!!!
    no muss...delicious!!!!!
    I used a food processor on the pretzels. Worked great it made a little pretzel powder helped bind it. Also put pecan in the topping. After refrigerating let sit on the counter for 15 to 20 min. Came out of my glass baking dish perfectly.
    Anyone used almond bark instead of chocolate chips? All I have on hand....
    Hard to get out f the glass pan. They came out much thinner than I remember seeing on the show. I didn't like them & will probably throw them out along with the recipe.
    it is soooo good we cant eat peanut butter I used sunbutter and it is sooo good
    YUMMY!!!!! My son loves peanut butter cups. I made these for him and he is hooked!!!! We make them together and it's an easy, wonderful time for us!! Thank you, Trisha. I love your recipes!!!!!
    Delicious & so easy to make! I didn't have milk chocolate chips so I used white chocolate chips.
