|Apple Pie Baked in the Apple|
You will need:
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
(makes about 45 sandwiches)
1 cup of peanut butter (creamy works best)
2 Tbsp softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar
Waffle shaped Pretzels
1 bag good quality chocolate.
Using a mixer, combine peanut butter and softened butter and beat until smooth.
Add the sugars and stir to combine.
At this point if the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hands you’re ready to go.
If not, add more sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll.
Use a teaspoon measure to scoop the filling.
Roll each portion into a small ball and set on a cookie sheet.
Roll all the balls and then sandwich them between two whole pretzels.
When all the balls are rolled and successfully sandwiched, stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.
Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each half-way into the melted chocolate.
When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely.
Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time. These are guaranteed to disappear fast!
