Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites.

I couldn't resist not making something to incorporate the peanut butter I made for the Peanut Butter Balls! I also couldn't resist making a bite size dessert.  These definitely incorporate both! They are a mixture of salty goodness and rich creamy amazingness! Remember our Peanut Butter Balls and how they were like homemade Reeses?? Well these are a twist on the peanut butter balls much like a take 5 or a fast break is a twist on a Reeses! They are a perfect treat for a party or just to snack on!

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites.

 ½ cup peanut butter
6 tablespoons butter {room temperature}
1 1/8 cup powdered sugar
140 mini pretzel knots {makes 70 bites.}
1 ¾ cup chocolate chips

Mix the Peanut Butter, Butter, and Powdered Sugar in a bowl.
Make 1 inch balls and freeze on a plate for 20 min.
Cut 1 inch balls into 1/4th and roll with hands to be smooth small balls.
Take 2 pretzels and smash the peanut butter balls in the middle. Place back on the plate and freeze for 10 min.

Melt Chocolate Chips in the microwave in 30 sec increments. stirring in between each interval.
Dip half of the pretzel bite into the chocolate and place back on plate.
 {You may want to put them on wax paper or they will stick to the plate like mine did.}
Freeze for 5 min. or until chocolate is set.
{Some of them stick really well to the plate so carefully remove from plate before indulging!}
