This is not just any ‘bar’… it takes a maximum of 30 minutes to make and hits all of the sweet / salty / crunchy aspects of what a snack or dessert should most of the time be. Cut the size you wish them to be and store them in the refrigerator…OR you could put them in the freezer …’out of site, out of mind’ right??? 🙂
I know what you are thinking…”what does this have to do with being healthy??
Like I’ve always said… I don’t cut out any foods, but the quantity that I eat is up to me (AND you)!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
Yield: however you cut them (I got 20 bars)
½ cup pretzels, crushed (not too fine, by hand/rolling pin is best)
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup powdered sugar
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup chocolate chips, divided
Line a loaf pan with waxed paper. Set aside. Melt ½ of the chocolate and spread in the bottom of the wax paper lined pan. Freeze until firm (app 10 minutes). Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until mixed; keep working it (I used a fork), it WILL come together. Spread this evenly over the firm chocolate and melt the remaining chocolate. Spread over the filling and freeze again until ALMOST firm (app 7 minutes, if you wait until it is firm, you won’t be able to get a clean cut) remove from the pan with the waxed paper and cut with a sharp knife the size you wish. Refreeze to get completely hardened or store in the refrigerator in a closed container until firm. VERY rich and VERY good! Enjoy! ~
