1 - 10oz. bag Reese's peanut butter chips
1 TBSP Crisco shortening
1 bag salted pretzels (regular shape)
In a microwave safe bowl add the peanut butter chips and Crisco--microwave on half power for 90 seconds. Stir well. If not completely melted return to microwave in 10 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Use a toothpick to dip each pretzel into the melted mixture until coated, then place coated pretzel on wax paper. Repeat until all melted mixture is used up. Let pretzels set and harden.
