Try this Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites recipe and enjoy the flavors of sweet peanut butter and salty pretzels in a nice and bite sized snack. And this is definitely a pretzel bites recipe that the kids are going to insist on helping you make (whether you want them to, or not). It is a super fun and easy recipe that does not require either any stove top time or time in the oven, and so it is the perfect pretzel bites recipe to have the kids help you pull together. It does require some time in the fridge just to let the flavors comingle, and the chocolate is heated in the microwave before being used, but that is all stuff you can handle before handing over the rest of the fun to the kids.

In this pretzel bites recipe, a blend of peanut butter and sugars as well as butter is blended together to form a mixture that you make in to balls. This is one step where little hands could shape the mixture in to the balls. Be sure the mixture is neither too dry nor too wet, and adjust ingredients accordingly. You can be sure that little ones will taste test for you and approve or recommend as they see fit. The balls are pressed between a couple of pretzels, something that, again, little hands could do, perhaps with a little bit of help. Then the whole thing is put in to the fridge in order to chill and let the flavors come together a bit.

When you remove the pretzel bites from the fridge, the real fun begins. And this is where you may find the pretzel bites disappearing at an alarming rate. That is because now you dip the pretzel bites in to chocolate. It should sit and solidify before serving, but you never know with little ones! They may be dipping and then double dipping! So keep an eye on their progress so that the net result is a positive number of pretzel bites that you could have to serve to the rest of the family and friends.
