Chocolate & Peanut Butter Pretzel Sticks – 3 SmartPoints

Last night I was really craving something sweet. I checked out the pantry to see if there was anything I could come up with that wouldn’t blow my points for the day. I saw reduced fat peanut butter, chocolate bars and pretzels. Need I say more?

Ten of these pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate and peanut butter is 3 SmartPoints. The only problem is stopping at 10. Luckily my family loved them too so they quickly disappeared. I did manage to put 10 in a baggie to have for a snack at work the following day. The next time I make these I plan on doing 10 bags with 10 pretzel sticks pre-portioned out…if my family doesn’t get to them first.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Pretzel Sticks

Yield: 10 servings (3 SmartPoints per serving. One serving includes 10 pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate & peanut butter)

Ingredients:

  • 100 pretzel sticks
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter
  • 1 (1.55 oz.) Hershey’s milk chocolate bar

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small glass bowl, melt chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time. Mine took 45 seconds to melt.
  3. Dip pretzel sticks half way into the chocolate/peanut butter mixture. Lay pretzel on the baking sheet. Repeat until all of the pretzels are gone.
  4. Place baking sheet in the refrigerator until chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.
