Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line an 8x8 or 9x9 inch baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I used the butter wrappers to grease but did not put any foil in the pan).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with an electric mixer, beat together 3/4 cup peanut butter, butter, and vanilla extract until creamy.
  3. Add confectioners' sugar and brown sugar.
  4. Slowly beat sugars into peanut butter until well-combined. Add 1 1/2 cup pretzels and beat to combine.
  5. Press mixture into the bottom of prepared baking dish.
  6. In a microwave safe bowl, melt together chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter.
  7. Stir until smooth. Pour over the top and smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of crushed pretzels. Press down lightly.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting into bars and serving.
