Need a really last-minute Father’s Day gift?

Yeah, I can’t really help you there but I did whip us up a quick Sunday snack.

I should probably tell you that my husband ate them all though.

He’s a big fan of the whole chocolate & peanut butter combo.

Personally (and I know this is crazy talk) I could do without it.

My heart belongs to chocolate & caramel.

I did eat a couple of these, for quality control purposes of course, and I can attest to the fact that they are yummy.

They’re also really quick and easy to make which is always good because that means we can eat them faster!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet)

1 Tbsp nut butter (I used natural peanut butter)

Pretzels

Sprinkles (optional)

Directions:

In a microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips and peanut butter on high for about 30 seconds, stir halfway through.

If the chocolate still isn’t melted after 30 seconds and a good stir, give it another 10 seconds in the microwave but don’t overheat it. There’s no saving burnt chocolate.

Once the mixture is smooth, dip your pretzels. You can completely submerge or just go for halfsies like I did.

It’s easier to dip into a bowl or container that is taller than it is wide. I use a small plastic container but something like a juice glass would work too.

Give each pretzel a few taps on the side of your bowl after you dip to get the excess chocolate off.

Lay the pretzels on wax paper or a silicone liner to set up. If you plan on adding sprinkles, now would be the time to do that.

Once you’ve dipped all your pretzels put them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to set up so you can eat them.

If you want to make a lot of dipped pretzels, just double or even triple the amount of ingredients listed. You really can’t mess this one up. You can even mix nut butters. Go for half cashew butter & half almond butter if that floats your boat. Try peanut butter and white chocolate. Biscoff would work here too – just sayin’.

And why stop at sprinkles? Crushed cookies, mini chocolate chips, or crumbled potato chips would also be great on these.
