Peanut Butter Pretzel Time

IT'S HERE....SUMMER!!! The time of BBQ's, sundresses and sunshine is finally here and I couldn't be more excited.


I have been so extremely busy these past few weeks that my baking was placed on hold, however I had the opportunity to experiment with a new ( and SUPER EASY) recipe this past week for a work BBQ. Everyone loved these....myself included and I will definitely need to make them again! 


So if you are looking for something quick, fun and so delicious for an upcoming gathering, these are for you!


Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Sandwiches


Ingredients

1 cup of peanut butter
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar to start
3/4 cup brown sugar
Bakers chocolate squares
Small Pretzels (the large ones are seriously too much for these)

Directions
Line a baking sheet with wax paper or tin foil paper and set aside.

Using a stand mixer, mix peanut butter and butter until combined. Once mixed, add sugars and mix until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without sticking to your hands. If the mixture is still sticky, keep adding powdered sugar until the consistency is thicker.

Roll the peanut butter/sugar mixture into small balls, and sandwich each ball inbetween two mini pretzels. Lay each sandwich on the baking sheet and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler... or in my case a glass bowl overtop a pot of boiling water. Once the chocolate is perfectly tempered meaning shiny and smooth, dip each pretzel sandwich halfway in and place back on the baking sheet. 

Chill in refrigerator until chocolate is set.

My next baking challenge....strawberry shortbread mini-tarts possibly for Canada Day tomorrow!
