Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars #OurFamilyTable

Peanut Butter Pretzels mixed with powdered sugar and more peanut butter make the base of these delicious bars.  Chocolate frosting tops them off for a special sweet treat.


There are Pretzels Everywhere today over at our From the Dinner Table Group.......



Pretzels Everywhere!

One of our favorite snacks around here are peanut butter pretzels.  Whenever we go to Costco we pick up a large container.  When Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures announced that we were going to be celebrating pretzels today I knew that I wanted to incorporate them into a recipe.


This recipe was adapted from one found at Taste of Home.  It is no bake, easy to make and absolutely delicious.  


Fair warning, this recipe makes a lot of bars.  This is a problem, at least for me, because they are so good I can't stop eating them.  I ended up cutting half of the pan up and placed them in the refrigerator for us to snack on and froze the other half.

This is a great recipe to have your kids make during their quarantine.  I was saddened that my little sous chef couldn't be with me for this one.
