Mama Nibbles: Peanut Butter & Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

Oh peanut butter, how I love you and your creamy amazingness.  Last night I made peanut butter and chocolate dipped pretzel rods for my son's upcoming birthday party this weekend.  The pretzels taste amazing, I taste tested for quality control reasons only of course.  My next batch will be rolled in crushed up butterfinger and chopped candy coated chocolates!  The kids say we will call those Monster Pretzels.

What you need...
9 oz peanut butter, creamy or smooth is up to you. We prefer Jif for its extra peanutty flavor.
8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
20 pretzel rods or so
Anything you may wish to roll them in

What to do...
First put your pretzel rods into the freezer for about 10 minutes, just to get them nice and cold to speed up the dipping process. 

Second, line a couple cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

Thirdly, put your peanut butter into the microwave for about 20 seconds, stir it really good and make sure it is runny. 

Fourth, microwave your chocolate chips stirring every 30 seconds until they are almost melted. 

Now dip and roll half of the pretzel into the peanut butter, shaking off the excess while holding the pretzel rod vertically.  (You may wish to stick the cookie sheet of rods into the freezer for 10 minutes before doing the chocolate.)  Dip into the chocolate or rather spoon the melted chocolate over the peanut butter and then shake it again while holding upright.  Set each dipped stick onto the parchment paper line sheet and place in the freezer to firm up a bit more before putting into a sealed bag.  You can keep your dipped pretzels on the counter in a sealed bag for up to a month.

*TIP- to kick the flavor up a notch add a bit of coffee granules to the melted chocolate
