Start with some melted chocolate. I prefer the ghiardelli brand of chocolate chips, for melting, otherwise you could even melt a few of Hershey’s chocolate bars.

Throw on some mini pretzel twists and a sprinkle of some Reese’s pieces (one of my favorite candies!). The pretzels don’t got to be in a good layer.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars


  • 4 ounce box Reese's Pieces candies
  • 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

Peanut Butter Sauce:

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


  1. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate chips gently in the microwave (on low heat, stirring every 15 seconds) until smooth. 
  3. 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.
  4. For the peanut butter sauce:
  5. In a medium saucepan over medium heat add honey and sugar and stir well to combine. 
  6. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 full minute, stirring. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth. 
  7. Stir in vanilla. Drizzle the peanut butter sauce over the top of the pretzels and candy. 
  8. Melt remaining 4 ounces of chocolate and drizzle on top. 
  9. Refrigerate until hardened.
  10. Cut or tear into pieces. Store in the fridge.
