These chocolate peanut better pretzel bars may just be the ideal dessert treat. They only include a few ingredients, but the items blend together perfectly.

Apparently, my parents and brother are not a fan of the chocolate peanut butter combination.

I know, right? It's like I must be adopted or something.

I mean, first of all, my family probably consists of aliens. Human beings are not even capable of disliking chocolate and peanut butter.

I had no idea they weren't fans of this combo until sometime late last year when my brother mentioned how many desserts I've ruined by adding peanut butter to the mix. Then my parents just nonchalantly agreed with him. Like, yep, you're a horrible daughter who's been bringing us crap desserts for years.

Um, hello? Someone could have mentioned that a loooooooong time ago. Not that I would have stopped bringing the desserts, but at least I could have felt slightly less guilty for eating them all myself.

Whataver. More for me!

PB and chocolate is one of the best combinations ever .. I like chocolate and orange too .. But just wondering if you could whip something up that's deadly tasty but ok for diabetics ..


My husband doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate together either. But he loves chocolate and orange, which makes me want to hurl. Sooooo.. I'll make these and eat them all myself. :)


These look out of this world!


That's so funny about your family. Yes, you're horrible! I'd love someone to be horrible enough to make some of these for me. 😃 I would love them!
