Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Sandwiches

by Courtney on August 18, 2011

So last night, I told you guys how I came across one of the most delicious little treats ever, right? Yeah…that would be these little gems right here.




Well my mom is the one who actually made these, after she had gotten the recipe from a girl that she works with. I also used to work with said girl a while back, and I must say…Sam, I had no idea you were so snazzy with the treats! Winking smile


So here’s the deal- these things are quick, delicious, and totally necessary to have for your next get-together. Or, umm, even just because…because that’s totally okay, too. I mean, salty and sweet? Does it GET much better than that??


Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Sandwiches


1 bag of salted pretzel twists

Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

Chocolate Coating:**

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp light corn syrup


  1. First, make the chocolate coating. Pour heavy cream into small saucepan. Once it begins to scald, add chocolate chips and corn syrup and stir. Cover the pot, remove from heat, and allow to sit for about 15 minutes.
  2. While the chocolate is melting, make the peanut butter filing by combining all of the ingredients (by hand or with a mixer). Sandwich about 1 tsp of filling between two pretzels and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
  3. Once all pretzels are filled, stir the chocolate to make sure everything is combined. Dip half of each filled peanut butter pretzel sandwich into chocolate and place on wax paper. Put sandwiches in refrigerator about 1-2 hours or until chocolate is hardened and cooled. ENJOY! Smile

**To make the chocolate coating, you could also just simply melt chocolate chips in the microwave to make things easier. This chocolate recipe, however, is very rich and super delicious!


My mom told me that she ended up making about 60 pretzel sandwiches and still had extra leftover of the peanut butter filling AND the chocolate. That being said, you could easily cut both of these recipes in half to make a smaller batch…which may or may not be a good idea if you’re just making these for yourself. Winking smile

Now if I only had some of these with me right now in Philly!

Question for the Afternoon:

What would you deem the “ultimate” salty and sweet combo?

I couldn’t WAIT for you to post the recipes of these little guys. They look amazing!

I’ve always said my favorite sweet/salty combo is chocolate/yogurt covered pretzels…so this little treat is PERFECT! Thanks for sharing!

Umm, totally next on my list. I make anything PB/Chocolate. That’s what I love about these healthy living blogs…we all love being healthy and fit but we all love to eat awesome, rich, delicious sweets too!

Genius! I love Take 5 bars and I’m pretty sure these are them, just homemade! I think I’ll try the coating with coconut milk instead of heavy cream. I’ve used it for ganache before for a non-dairy option and it was really really good.

Enjoy Philly- looking forward to reading about it! :)


14 Mallory @ It's Only Life August 18, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Wow! As good as these look, I’ll have to replace the PB with Nutella (I’m deathly allergic to PB). Or sunbutter! Regardless, I’ll have to try these :)

Wow those look good! Thanks so much for the recipe! :)

I love any and everything salty and sweet, so I think my fav combo would have to be Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bar with caramel and black sea salt…amazing!!

This combination may just be the best ever. I need to make them asap!


20 Andrea @ Onion in My Hair August 18, 2011 at 1:39 pm

Great little treat!

I have a tailgate coming up in a few weeks and I will definitely be making those!

I am glad you added the note about just melting chocolate chips. I was thinking that in my head the whole time and I’m glad your note confirmed it! :)

Last night I had just finished reading my blogs for the night (yours included) and I decided to kill some time by using Stumble Upon. One of the sites I stumbled upon was a site that had these exact yummy pretzel treats! Does said girl also have a blog??

Seeing them twice in a day made me realize I HAVE to make them!

I love the pretzel + chocolate combo for the ultimate sweet + salty. TJ’s dark chocolate pretzels are pretty much my weak spot.

29 Mary @ Bites and Bliss August 18, 2011 at 3:17 pm

I pretty much deem pretzels & chocolate the ultimate combo. I’ve loved them ever since I was a baby. I’d go through bags of them!!

THIS is without a doubt my ultimate favorite salty/sweet combo. I love PB, chocolate, and pretzels, so all of them combined is pure heaven. Trader Joe’s chocolate covered peanut butter filled pretzel bites are my fave!
