Peanut Butter “Buckeye” Pretzel Bites

PB Pretzel bites

In addition to the crockpot mac ‘n cheese, the girls also took these to their cast and crew potluck. Another friendly potluck portable. Someone posted this on Facebook earlier this month and  I was on my phone so I just snapped a picture; in doing so, I don’t have where the recipe originated from so I can’t give them their props. Oops, sorry.


  • bag of mini pretzels
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsps. softened butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips


Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat the peanut butter and butter until combined. Add sugars and mix well. You should be able to roll mixture into small balls without it sticking to your hands. If needed, add more powdered sugar until it is easy to roll. (I added another 2 tbsps. of powdered sugar because the mixture was too sticky.)

Take each ball and sandwich between two pretzels. Place on wax paper. When done, stick in the freezer for a few minutes. Melt the chocolate and dip each pretzel bite halfway into the chocolate and place on wax paper to set.
