Ingredients

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (good quality )s , divided (I like Ghirardelli brand best for melting)
  • 8 ounces mini pretzel twists , half of a regular 16-ounce bag
  • 4 ounce box Reese's Pieces candies

Peanut Butter Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate chips gently in the microwave (on low heat, stirring every 15 seconds) until smooth. 
  • Spread the chocolate evenly over the parchment. Immediately add the pretzel twists and Reese's Pieces over the top (it's ok if they overlap a little) and gently press them into the chocolate.

For the peanut butter sauce:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat add honey and sugar and stir well to combine. 
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 1 full minute, stirring. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. 
  • Stir in vanilla. Drizzle the peanut butter sauce over the top of the pretzels and candy. 
  • Melt remaining 4 ounces of chocolate and drizzle on top. 
  • Refrigerate until hardened.
  • Cut or tear into pieces. Store in the fridge.
