Easy Gift Idea: Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels and PBJ Grahams


Easy Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels


We’ve got a new Costco in town.  I’m not much of a shopper, but I kind of love this store.

On my most recent trip, I found this big container of peanut butter filled pretzels.  And I knew they would be meeting up with chocolate at the first possible moment.

These would make a great, simple gift idea.  Package them in a cute jar and you’ll make someone very happy.

I also made Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Grahams and Chocolate Covered PBJ Grahams.  No surprise, I liked the PBJ Grahams best.  They are so good!

There are a few extra steps needed for the grahams, but it’s still such an easy process.  These would make great gifts too.

I decided to use almond bark to coat these treats.  It’s very easy to use.  Just melt it in the microwave.  But I have to say, I really like the flavor of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips better.  The darker chocolate isn’t quite as sweet.  Next time, I’ll melt the chips and use those.

For the Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels, it’s really just a matter of melting the almond bark and dunking the pretzels.  Place them on waxed paper until the chocolate firms up.

For the grahams, I spread them with peanut butter, adding raspberry jam to some of them.  Then I popped them in the freezer for several minutes before dunking them in chocolate.

That’s all there is to it!  They disappeared pretty fast at my house!
