These Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites are a great treat to add to your baking plans. Easy, no bake, and full of sweet and salty goodness in every bite.
There are certain desserts that I just can't resist. Pretty much anything chocolate and peanut butter or sweet and salty gets my attention in a hurry. I just can't say no when those combos are around.
We have been making these Peanut Butter Balls for years. Our boys request them for every single holiday. And I eat my fair share of them too. We even turned them into Reese's Christmas trees for a great holiday treat.
A few years ago I had a brilliant idea to sandwich the buckeyes in between waffle pretzels and then dip the whole thing in chocolate. Yup, best idea ever. They are the perfect little candy to add to any holiday dessert tray.
Most of the time when I make these peanut butter filled pretzels, I just use white and dark chocolate melts. To jazz them up for different holidays, just add some fun holiday sprinkles to the top of the chocolate drizzles before it sets up.
These easy chocolate covered pretzels make the perfect gift too. Fill a cellophane bag or tin with a bunch of them and tie on a gift tag and bow and hand them out to all your friends and family. Or just place them randomly on a tray of cookies and watch everyone reach for them first.
These Floating Marshmallow Snowmen are another one of my favorite things to make for little gifts. A cup with hot chocolate packets and a bag of snowmen is so fun to make and give.
How to make Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
You can make a batch of these buckeye pretzels in no time at all. You just need homemade peanut butter balls, chocolate melting wafers, and pretzels. Oh, and sprinkles, if you want to be fancy.
- Mix together the butter, peanut butter, marshmallow cream, vanilla, and salt until creamy.
- Slowly add the powdered sugar until a soft dough forms.
- Roll the peanut butter dough into 36 mini balls.
- Press the peanut butter balls between two waffle pretzels.
- Dip the pretzels into melted chocolate and place on wax paper to set up.
- Drizzle the tops of the buckeye pretzels with a contrasting chocolate and let set.
Add different colored sprinkles before the chocolate drizzles set up to customize these sweet and salty treats for any holiday or event. You can even drizzle the white chocolate as "laces" and make these look like footballs for Super Bowl parties.

Can i freeze these?
Yes, you can freeze these. Make sure you keep them in a very tightly sealed container, so moisture cannot get into them.

These are amazing. I made them for my coworkers and they were a HIT!

What sugar are you using? I generally prefer using rock sugar because it is much healthier, but I am worried if it will change the taste?
This recipe calls for powdered sugar. I've never tried rock sugar, so I have no idea how it would do in this.

oooh this sounds incredible! i will have to try it soon! thanks for sharing!
How many does this recipe make?
I want to say 40-50, but I actually am not sure. I totally forgot to count them when we made them.
Great shot of your boys!
And the blondies are looking delicious. Unfortunately we don't have waffle pretzles around here (in the Netherlands). I don't even know what it is haha.
Have a good weekend.
Thank you! You can use whatever shape pretzel you have available.
Oh my! It's like a Chubby Hubby snack. I'm all over this recipe. 🙂
Buckeyes with waffle pretzels? Oh my word! Another to-die-for recipe, Jocelyn!
I love the pic of the kids having fun on the trampoline, and can definitely relate about the "girl drama". My daughters are 6 and 9, but already we've gotten more than one glimpse into the impending teen years.
Thank you for linking up another incredible recipe to "A Little Birdie Told Me..."
Wow those look delicious - we will have PB and chocolate together in heaven, no doubt. Maybe they will be calorie-free though? Just popping in to say hi and drool a little!!
yummy treat! thank you for sharing with tuesday night supper club
These look so good. I'm your newest follower. Be sure to stop by my blog Monday and add your project to the More The Merrier Monday Link Party.
I will not (I refuse!!) to admit how long it has been since Jillian and I had a date shredding. I will use sick kids as an excuse.. that's what I will do! Good luck with the gym. 😉

Wow. This has all my favorite flavors. Salt, peanut butter and chocolate. It must be good.
Hey friend! Did you post pictures of your new craft room before? I can't remember. I love seeing others craft spaces and get ideas on what I can do better. It was 2 degrees this morning when I woke up. BRR! I am so ready to go to Florida for vacation. I started doing P90X yoga this weekend. I have tried the gym, running, cardio, etc. and can't find anything I like until I started yoga. I find it so relaxing and hopefully it will tone me up, if you know what I mean. LOL! Hope your relationship with the gym works out. Ha Ha! (Did you get my cheesy pun.) Have a great week.
Love the pic of the kiddos jumping!!! My laundry is getting out of control too. That recipe sounds so good. I love ritz crackers w/ peanut butter dipped in chocolate. Yummy!!!
Well, aren't those just the cutest little candies? I'm trying to hit my back button but they are calling my name1
LOVING the picture!
