Peanut Butter & Chocolate Hard Pretzels by The Spiffy Cookie
It’s another #PBChocSat and #10DaysofTailgate mash up! And yet again another pretzel combination. I did not do that on purpose but evidently I have been craving the sweet and salty combo of peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate. Thankfully that goes well with tailgating.
Today’s sweet treat may not be considered a healthy option but it is made with Greek yogurt. Any health benefits from the yogurt is cancelled out with the copious amounts of sugar used to create the coating. But feel free to convince yourself that they are not as bad for you, because that’s what I did as I nearly devoured the entire stock of them in one sitting.

PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE YOGURT COVERED PRETZELS
6 oz. vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8 oz.) bag pretzels (I used pretzel thins but any kind will work)
2 oz. semisweet chocolate, melted
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place wire cooling racks over two cookie sheets and set aside.
- In a large bowl with a hand mixer, blend together the yogurt, sugar, and peanut butter.
- Using tongs, dip the pretzels into the yogurt mixture and place on prepared racks in a single layer.
- Turn oven off and place in the oven, leaving the door slightly open.
- Allow to harden for 3-4 hours in the oven and then remove. Drizzle with melted chocolate and allow to harden.
- Eat immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Haven’t made recipe yet, but would eliminating chocolate and using extra crunchy peanut butter work?
You can easily omit the chocolate drizzle, or substitute it for melted peanut butter chips. As for the crunchy peanut butter I don’t think that will work very well as it will not be easy to get a smooth coating. But if you want bits of peanuts then you can certainly try it!
Did you say healthy? I am so in! Love snacks like this, they would be perfect for traveling! Your recipe sounds delicious! Yum, Hugs, Terra
Oh so pretty! I will definitely be trying this out!
Peanut butter and chocolate are the best. Then add the salty goodness of pretzels and you have Nirvana.
I am a peanut butter fanatic! I want a giant bowl of these to munch on.
Salty and sweet work for me (if I can sub Nutella or tahini for the PB).
I am sure you can substitute with almond butter, nutella, tahini, sun butter or any kind of similar spread!
These look delicious! I’ll have to try them with SunButter since I have a peanut allergy. Yum!!
You will have to let me know how they come out with sunbutter!
These look SO tasty. I’m not much for sweets so I love the underlying pretzel. Thanks for sharing with #10DaysofTailgate.
I love those pretzel things! My store has chocolate covered ones now, but these look MUCH more tasty!
