It’s National Backwards Day. So I thought a fun way to celebrate would be to eat your dessert before dinner. I mean let’s face it, some of us tend to do that anyway. Here is a recipe for one of my go to desserts on any given day. Super easy to make and tastes just as delicious. Enjoy!

Triple Dipped Peanut Butter Chocolate Covered Pretzels

20160124-triple-dipped-peanut-butter-pretzels-9-680x1020

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups dark chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
15-20 large pretzel rounds (I used the 2″ish diameter ones, as opposed to the 1″ tiny ones)

DIRECTIONS:

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon coconut oil.  Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring frequently, until melted.  Dunk pretzels into the melted chocolate and allow excess chocolate to drip off (is there such a thing as excess chocolate? not sure.).  Place chocolate covered pretzels on a piece of wax paper that is on top of a baking sheet (i didn’t have wax paper so I used a piece of foil rubbed down with coconut oil).  Place pretzels in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until hardened.

Now, place your peanut butter and 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl.  Heat until thinned.  Dunk chocolate covered pretzels into the peanut butter mixture and place back on the wax paper.  Return to the freezer for 10 minutes.

Finally, melt the remaining 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon coconut oil.  Dip frozen chocolate-pb pretzels into the chocolate and place on a clean sheet of wax paper.  Place in the freezer until hard.  I like to store my pretzels in the freezer and grab them as craved.

Enjoy! Your Realtor and Friend for Life~ Kathy
