Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

I know it’s been awhile! The holidays took hold of me and now I’m finally getting a moment to breathe. I’m excited to share a few recipes I’ve had a chance to try in the last month, including these Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars!

These were super easy to make and a great last-minute item for a work potluck. I did have trouble finding the exact Krusteaz mix like in the recipe. I went to a few stores and none had it! I ended up using a store brand peanut butter mix that worked just fine. Another thing — I had such trouble finding a small bag of pretzels! I eventually found a medium one at a convenience store. I still have half a bag sitting in my pantry.

The recipe itself was super easy to execute. Just mix together the main ingredients, then add the m&ms and pretzels. Then press into the pan and bake! Super quick and easy. It was a fun take on typical peanut butter cookies. I definitely want to keep some boxes of cookie mix on hand for occasions like this. No need to slave away in the kitchen all night!
