Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

This is a recipe from foodaphilla.com, so cute and great combination of sweet, salty, and crunch!  As I put the peanut butter back on the shelf there sits the Nutella, so I made another batch using Nutella and peanut butter mixed together.  This is a sweet treat!

1 cup creamy peanut butter (can use 1/2 peanut butter & 1/2 Nutella)
2 Tbl softened butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
tiny pretzel twists
1 cup  semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp shortening

With mixer, combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl.  Add powdered sugar and brown sugar, mix until well combined.

Use a rounded teaspoon scoop of filling (or more), roll into a small ball, then sandwich between two whole pretzels.  When all the balls are rolled and sandwiched, put them in the freezer for about half an hour.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in microwave safe bowl, heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted.  Remove pretzel sandwiches from freezer and quickly dip each half-way into melted chocolate.  Return to tray and repeat with remaining sandwiches.  When all are dipped, return tray to freezer to set up completely.  Store sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving.  Makes about 40 treats.
