Warning these chocolate peanut butter covered pretzels are highly addictive!! After I discovered just how easy they are to make I began making them whenever I felt like a sweet treat, and now I’ve been making them a couple times a week! They have the perfect balance of sweet and salty making them an ideal snack and they’re perfect to put out for parties or bring as a treat to potlucks. This recipe is such a winner your dish will end up completely empty by the time you leave!
This recipe calls for a double boiler, but if you don’t have a fancy set up a basic small pot and bowl will do, just make sure you have good oven mitts to handle the hot bowl after. I use silicone oven mitts so they’re super easy to clean the melted chocolate off after, but I’m seriously debating getting a double boiler just because I make this recipe so much!

To cut down on cooking time use mini chocolate chips instead of regular sized ones. They melt super fast so you can enjoy this tasty treat that much faster. You can also use any kind of chocolate chips you prefer. I like using semi-sweet dairy free ones that I get from Bulk Barn, but you could cut down on sugar by using dark chocolate, or get creative by mixing half white chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips.
You can also use any kind of nut butter. We have natural peanut butter from Costco which works super good, but if you prefer almond, cashew, or any other kind of nut butter that will work equally as well, if not better!
The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for them to cool, and once they have you’re going to want to eat them all!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Pretzels
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 5 cups waffle pretzels
Use a double boiler, or a makeshift one with a pot and a bowl to melt the chocolate chips.
Once the chocolate chips are melted stir in the peanut butter until it is well blended.
Place pretzels in a medium-sized mixing bowl and pour the melted chocolate peanut butter mixture over the pretzels. Stir well to make sure you evenly coat all of the pretzels.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread the pretzels over the parchment paper. Cool in the freezer for 5 minutes before devouring.
