Pretzel Buckeyes!

Hey guys! So yesterday I was craving peanut butter and chocolate. So…I decided to make some pretzel buckeyes! And they turned out GOOD! So here’s the recipe I used (it will make about 18-22 depending on how big you make them):

1 Cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter
A dash of salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cup powdered sugar
Stick pretzels
Chocolate chips

First mix the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt until it’s creamy. You can use a beater if you want but I just stuck to the old school wooden spoon :) 

Now, slowly add the powdered sugar. I added about a cup at a time until it was thick and creamy. I used about one cup of it in all.
Eventually it got so hard to stir that I just used my hands. When you’re done it should look like this
Throw a few handfuls of pretzels in a bag and crush them. You still want them to be in chunks but small enough to roll into balls
Now, take a pinch of the peanut butter “dough” and a bunch of crushed pretzels and roll them into bite sized balls on a cookie sheet. Then place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Last, melt a bunch of chocolate chips and coat the buckeyes in them.
I lied, there’s one more step ;)
Now, you have to enjoy them and eat them all before anyone else finds them! Good luck and happy baking!
