Candy Coated Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels

Looking for a fast, fun idea that doesn't require baking or a great project the kids could do themselves? These pretzels are a tasty treat and come together in no time.  
This is a variation of the chocolate covered ones I saw on Pinterest HERE.
Plan A was to dip my pretzels into the colored candy melts like the chocolate ones above and add the sprinkles, but the candy was too thick. After a quick Google search on how to thin it... I didn't have an answer so I just put it into an icing bag and drizzled it over the pretzel. If anyone has a tried and true tip for thinning candy melts please let us know in a comment-thanks!

Candy Coated Peanut Butter Pretzels
Small pretzels
Peanut Butter
Candy melts or chocolate
Sprinkles
  1. Smear peanut butter on a pretzel and top it with another pretzel.
  2. Melt candy melts or chocolate-I used the microwave, and dip or drizzle over pretzels. I added the candy to a disposable icing bag and snipped a tiny bit off of the end.
  3. Add sprinkles while the candy is still wet.
  4. Let candy firm up.

  5. These look so perfect for a Christmas treat, Lynn! I sometimes add about 1/2 teaspoon of shortening to thin out the chocolate a bit ( at least for chocolate chips).

  11. I was going to do chocolate covered peanut-butter filled pretzels for Christmas cookie trays, but I really like your "sandwich" pretzel idea! I may have to do this instead.
    They look fabulous!!!

  15. These were one of the cookies in Tim's office cookie exchange on Friday (without the candy coating). They are delicious and I can only image what the candy adds to them. Hope you had a great weekend.
