These delicious, no-bake, chocolate Pretzel Peanut Clusters take just minutes to make and are the perfect bite-size treat!
It’s almost summertime and I am ready for ALL the no-bake treats!! Some of my favorite no-bake recipes include:
Normally when I’m in desperate need of something sweet, thats easy to make, I go to my favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe. But sometimes I’m just not in the mood for turning my oven on, so I resort to these fantastic, no bake, chocolate, pretzel peanut clusters. They take all of 5 minutes to whip together and I will give you fair warning that they are completely addicting. A little salty, sweet, and crunchy all in one rich, dark chocolate bite.
- 1½ cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 10 oz bag peanut butter chips, divided
- 8 tablespoons butter divided
- ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups pretzels broken into pieces
- 1 cup salted peanuts
Prepare two baking sheets with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together chocolate chips, 1 cup of peanut butter chips, 7 tablespoons of butter, and peanut butter. Microwave on low power for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth (be careful not to scorch the chocolate!) You could also put everything in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted.
Add pretzels and peanuts to the melted chocolate mixture and gently toss to combine.
Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until chocolate has set.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and remaining peanut butter chips to a bowl and microwave, as before, until melted. Pour the melted mixture into a ziplock bag and cut the corner off. Drizzle over refrigerated clusters. Enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge.
