Chocolate, with savoury peanut butter, then add salty pretzels - drooling yet? Try my Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites with Pretzels. Try putting a whole one in your mouth upside-down...wow!!!!
You get lovely little bursts of salt, followed by all the creamy chocolately crunchy nutty goodness. A taste & texture flavour bomb!
My taste inspiration for these was Chubby Hubby ice cream, which I also called on for my Chubby Hubby Cookies (made in a muffin tin) which are the softest, thickest cookies EVER with no dry, hard edges. Mmmmm.
Anyway, back to what I was saying...
So easy, just melt & mix, sprinkle then refrigerate. Dangerously simple. I apologise.
Who am I kidding - no apologies! We're all grown-ups here - I/you don't need to eat the lot - but no judgment from me if you do! I ate far more than my fair share...
Great, now the ones that are still in my fridge are calling me...
