Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeye Pretzels

Have you ever tried a Buckeye candy? It’s a ball of peanut butter fudge dipped into chocolate! Today I’m sandwiching this delicious candy between two crunchy pretzels for the ultimate sweet and salty treat!

Buckeye Pretzels
(full recipe, adapted from Glenda Piccioni)
1 c. peanut butter
2 Tbsp. butter, room temperature
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 bag mini pretzels
12 oz. chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark) OR chocolate almond bark
2 tsp. coconut oil (if using chocolate chips)

Add the peanut butter and butter to a mixing bowl. Beat together with an electric hand mixer until evenly incorporated. Add the powdered sugar and brown sugar. Mix until combined. Cover a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat, parchment or wax paper. Spoon one rounded teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture onto a pretzel and sandwich with another pretzel. Repeat until all peanut butter filling is used up. Refrigerate for a few minutes while preparing the chocolate. Pour the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a heat safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted. Dip half of each pretzel sandwich into the melted chocolate and place back onto the cookie sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate solidifies. ENJOY!
