#3495 - Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

(by Shirley McNevich)

2 cups Jif smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup softened butter
2 cups Domino's powdered sugar
4 cups broken pretzel twists (salted)
2 cups Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate bits

Line a 9 x 13 cake pan with foil and spray the foil with Pam. In a bowl add 1 1/4 cups of the peanut butter and all of the softened butter--stir well. Add 1 cup powdered sugar--stir well. Add the other 1 cup powdered sugar--stir well. Add 3 cups of the broken pretzel pieces and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips--stir to mix. Spread the mixture evenly into the foil lined pan. In a microwave safe bowl add the other 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and the other 3/4 cup peanut butter--microwave on 50% power in 30 second increments (stirring in between) until melted and smooth. Spread the melted chocolate mixture over the mixture in the pan. Sprinkle the rest of the broken pretzel pieces evenly over the top. Use your finger to lightly press the broken pretzels into the chocolate layer. Cool completely, then refrigerate until cold. Use the foil to pull the whole thing out of the pan, peel off the foil, and cut into bars or squares.
