Peanut Butter Buckeye Pretzel Bites

I made something similar to these last year - Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites. There were some small differences in the recipe, but the biggest difference was in how they were built. The last ones were kind of free-form, with everything glopped on top of a pretzel. These were very neat and beautiful, and the double-pretzeling helped the peanut butter stay in better.

So we all loved these. Except people who don't like peanut butter. But these seriously are delicious. I actually used chocolate candy melts this time (which have an oil in them to help the chocolate be smoother and shinier) and it looked WAY better than when I dip things in chocolate chips. They were lovely. These really aren't difficult though. I'm very proud of them and I'd definitely make them again for any reason whatsoever.

Peanut Butter Buckeye Pretzels
Inside BruCrew Life (she has the BEST stuff)

1 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter, softened
Dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
Waffle pretzels
12 ounces chocolate candy coating

Beat the peanut butter, butter, salt, and vanilla until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Roll into small balls and let set.

Place a peanut butter ball between 2 pretzels and press together.

Heat the chocolate coating up for one minute in the microwave. Stir until melted and creamy. Dip each peanut butter filled pretzel in the melted chocolate. Use a fork to remove from the chocolate. Tap the excess chocolate off and place the pretzels on waxed paper to set. Store in a sealed container.

I made chocolate cookie pretzel bars at Christmas this year and they were amazing, so I assume these would be good!
