Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
Sweet and salty flavor combinations are forever a favorite of my kids so, I'm constantly looking for inspiration to create the next cookie bar superstar. I came across this recipe from Nestle and fell in love. Any no bake, sweet and salty treat that using chocolate and peanut butter is a no brainer and, I was compelled to give it a try. My boys tested and approved , giving it two thumbs up.
Tips For Making No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars
We loved the flavor of these bars and I wanted to share a couple of tweaks I made as well.
- The original recipe calls for these to be made in a 13 x 9 inch pan. While it certainly works that way, I felt that made them a bit too thin for our liking. For that reason, I recommend using a 9 x 9 inch baking pan, and in my opinion it's the best.
- It's also very important to give these bars time to set-up before you attempt to cut them. Take the time to chill them thoroughly and also store leftovers chilled. I found that the bars held together better and they'll cut into prettier pieces as well.
- This recipe is easy, with the bonus of being no-bake and made with ingredients I typically already have on hand. That makes these bars even sweeter when they're requested by my sons.
