Total: 1 hr 17 min Cook: 16 min

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Level: Easy



  • 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.

<p>Addictive. That's the one word to describe this yummy chocolate square. I could have eaten the entire pan the day I made them. Restraint is a good word too!</p><p>The only change I made, was to use dark chocolate chips to balance out the sweetness of the peanut butter and confectioner sugar. I also used 20-22 pretzel rods. There was enough leftover in the bag to make another batch for Super Bowl.</p> See All Reviews Post Review
