Are you ever hungry for a snack that has your favorite treats wrapped into one package? I often times will open the pantry and feel conflicted over which item I should grab. After all, I don’t want the other faves to feel bad. This Quick Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Mix is the perfect solution.
As someone who likes to minimize cleanup at all costs, Quick Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Mix really makes sense to me because it gets mixed together right in the pretzel bag. It’s also a fun treat to make with the kids.
You will have to remove some of the pretzels before mixing everything together or else you will not have the space to add all the other goodies and shake, shake, shake.
The peanut butter does add a level of messiness to this mix but I figured out quickly that this must be the reason why napkins were invented.
Feel free to substitute your favorite pantry ingredients should you not care for my favorites or when you see that Mother Hubbard’s cupboard is a tad bare!
- 9 ounces mini pretzels 257 grams
- 2 cups roasted peanuts, divided 270 grams
- 1½ cups M&M’s, divided 285 grams
- 11½ ounces milk chocolate, melted 323 grams
- 1½ cups smooth peanut butter, melted 390 grams
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Set aside 1/3 cup (58 grams) of peanuts and 1/3 cup (78 grams) of M&M’s.
Mini pretzels are sold in bags larger than 9 ounces. Remove all but 9 ounces and enjoy the remaining pretzels another time.
Add the remaining peanuts and M&M’s to the bag of pretzels. Close the bag and shake until the pretzels, peanuts and M&M’s are well mixed.
Add the melted chocolate and peanut butter to the bag. Seal with a clip or wrap the edges closed and shake until everything is mixed together, using your hands to help manipulate the chocolate and peanut butter through the bag.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining peanuts and M&M’s over the top. Place in the freezer to set, about 15 minutes.
Break into pieces and enjoy.
