A Merry Christmas with Muddy Buddies --Pretzel Style!

Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating the Holiday.  I just wanted to share this super simple recipe for anyone looking to make something yummy after all the festivities.  I plan to cozy on up later with a glass of hot cocoa, some popcorn and watch It's A Wonderful Life with my sister and daddy. 
For the Pretzel Muddy Buddies I recommend using the "Snaps" shape.  At first I was thinking of using just regular mini pretzels or nuggets but these seemed perfect.  It was like love at first sight in the snack aisle...

Follow the same recipe as regualar muddy buddies but substitute the Chex for pretzels.
But in case yaa get confused follow these steps:

Pour the entire bag of pretzels into a giant bowl

Then pour the chocolate, peanut butter and butter mixture on top

Then stir.  I like to use two spoons to mix, it makes it simple.

Then spoon the mixture into a giant ziploc baggie

Dump a little less than half a bag (1/2 lb) of powdered sugar into the bag

Transfer to a Tupperware container.   I tried to break apart some of the pieces that stuck together and added more powder sugar.

There ya go...The best salty-sweet snack out there.
Just kidding, but it is pretty awesome!

With love and cupcakes,

  1. 1 Bag Pretzels 
  2. 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  3. 1/2 cup peanut butter
  4. 1/4 cup butter (or margarine)
  5. 1/2 pound powder sugar

  1. Put pretzels into a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  2. In a microwaeable bowl microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovred for 1 minute. Stir.  Microwave for 30 seconds if needed.
  3. Pour onto pretzels and mix well
  4. Place chocolate covered pretzels into a large Ziploc bag and dump 1/2 pound powdered sugar. Shake until coated and place in an airtight container to store.


  1. Oh my goodness I will soooo be trying this! My family refers to it as "trash", and I just had some for the first time in forever on Christmas. But I'm dying to try it with pretzels. How fun!
