I feel like a bit of a one-trick pony these days.
I mean, are you sick of cookie bars yet?
What was I thinking? You guys are my peeps.
No way are you sick of cookie bars.
They’re totally delicious, totally easy and completely versatile.
Like, would a cake let you put chocolate chip cookies and pretzel nuggets in it?
Hmmm, don’t answer that. Idea logged.
Anyway, cookie bars are pretty chill.
Ooh, yuck. I can’t believe I just said that.
What I MEAN is, they are all easy-breezy-I-don’t-care-what-you-add-to-me-because-I-will-work-and-be-delicious-no-matter-what.
So yeah. I make a lot of bar desserts.
They make me happy.
And since you ARE my peeps, I’m thinking they make you happy too.
Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars…
So I started with a log of cookie dough.
And I pressed it in a pan.
Annnd I baked the bajeezus out of it.
OK, not really. I barely baked it.
Then I put a bunch of marshmallows all over it.
If you don’t follow me on instagram look at THIS box of marshmallows I got from Jet-Puffed.
I decided I had better start using them!
Then I baked that up for a quick minute…just until the marshmallows puff up a little.
Then immediately press your peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets into the gooey-ness. I used THESE pretzel nuggets.
If you want to make it pretty melt some peanut butter chips with a bit of shortening….
And go ahead and drizzle that shizzle…
For real now.Print

While I enjoy a good peanut butter bar, I felt the need to add a little something, that something being more chocolate. I tweaked this just a bit. . .used regular pretzels (broken up) and melted chocolate chips with peanut butter for the drizzle on top. So good!
Wish I had a pan all to myself right now!
OH MY GOSH!!! I made these for a Super Bowl party tonight and everyone was blown away. You are in my Pinterest recipe hall of fame. Awesome recipe! I almost wonder if it wouldn’t add to the flavor to have toasted marshmallows. Thanks for sharing!
We just included this yummy recipe in our 6 Decadent and (sorta kinda) Healthy Desserts post! Come take a look!
Just made these and my husband came home for lunch and dove in! I told him to let them cool but he said they are too good! Thank you!!!!
These sound amazing!!! I’m pinning these for later! Thanks for sharing!
Made these last week, I couldn’t find the peanut butter pretzel nuggets so I used Snyders peanut butter pretzel sandwiches and they turned out wonderful ! Love this especially when I don’t want to make a mess, it’s so easy and I didn’t even have to get my mixer out 🙂
Um… YES PLEASE! found you via pinterest – here to stay thanks to this!
