Ingredients

For the peanut butter pretzel layer:

  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (180 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 cup (250 grams) creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups (200 grams) crushed pretzels (measured after crushing)

For the topping:

  • 1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup (65 grams) creamy peanut butter

Instructions

To make the peanut butter pretzel layer:

  • Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment, making sure to leave some overhang for easy removal, and set aside.
  • Add the melted butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and crushed pretzels to a large mixing bowl and mix until fully combined. Scoop the mixture into the prepared baking pan and press it down into one even layer.

To make the topping:

  • Add the chocolate chips and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each increment, until melted and smooth. Pour the mixture on top of the bars and spread it around into one even layer.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then remove from the pan, and slice into bars.

Notes

Prep time includes 1 hour of chilling time.
Bars may be frozen for up to 3 months, wrap tightly and store in a freezer bag or container. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
