It would not be the holidays if you didn’t try a new recipe. This year my mom whipped up these little treats. The recipe comes from Trisha Yearwood. Trisha has become known as a sassy little thing in the kitchen. These little chocolate and peanut butter treats are dreamy and the pretzel bottom gives a complete tasty finish. And come on- no baking needed. Enjoy!- Amanda
Squares of Happiness (No-Bake Pretzel Peanut Butter Squares)
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
2 cups pretzel rods or sticks, crushed into crumbs
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup plus 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, add the melted butter, pretzel crumbs, confectioners’ sugar and 1 cup of the peanut butter and stir together until well combined. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking dish.
Combine the chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate and peanut butter are melted and smooth; two times should be enough. Mix to blend, then spread over the peanut butter-pretzel layer. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.
