peanut butter pretzel sandwiches

Salty and sweet. Nutty and delicious. Naughty and oh so nice. These little sandwiches are packed with a sugary potion that will blow your mind! I made a batch of these little devils for our recent road trip to the Coachella music festival. Perfect for snacking, dinner parties, and birthday surprises. . . these sandwiches are beyond divine. Go ahead, give your taste buds a chuckle!

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 bag of pretzel bites
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
salted pecan pieces
2 tbsp softened butter

Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl.  Add the sugars and mix to combine until dry enough to roll into a ball. If the filling sticks to your hands, add more sugar until you reach desired consistency. 

 Use a spoon to measure the filling.  Roll each portion into a small ball, then sandwich them between two whole pretzels thins.  Place the sandwiches on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.

 Melt your chocolate chips in a small sauce pan over super low heat. Stir constantly until the chips are completely melted. Dip one end of each sandwich into the chocolate. Tap to remove excess chocolate and place back onto the parchment paper. If you are adding the pecan crust, sprinkle the pieces onto the top and allow to cool. Return the tray to the freezer to set up completely. Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve them!
