Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels

These weren't as buttery sinful as the Ritz Bits peanut butter sandwiches I first thought to chocolate cover, but they have the same salty-chocolate, peanut butter flavor delight and are still plenty decadent. Plus, there's nice crunch to each bite—more crunch if you can make them last more than one bite.

The ingredient list and process is super simple to make these, but they do require tedious assembly. Hence, they are either a teamwork project with good company or something to busy your hands while you become completely enthralled in a British countryside family uppercrust drama circa 1910s (What will happen to the money? Who will she marry? How will they adapt to social changes? Ooo.) a.k.a. my latest addiction, Downton Abbey.
So, if you happen to have chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels in your pantry, you should make better-than-packaged-candy while you escape into a good show or conversation at the same time.

Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels

Square-shaped pretzels like Snyder's Snaps
Creamy peanut butter
Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Spread peanut butter on one pretzel and top with another pretzel. Repeat with all the pretzels desired. Put chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for one minute; stir. Cook for 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until chips are melted. Dip pretzel sandwiches into chocolate and place on wax paper. Let candies cool in the refrigerator; store in fridge until ready to eat (they get kind of melty).
