This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Clusters is the perfect family snack or handmade gift for the holidays. Nom. Nom. Nom. A big thank you to Jessica for sharing this family-favorite with us today!
We’ve got sweets on the brain. During the holiday season (and over Valentine’s Day) our family comes together to whip up some favorite treats in the kitchen.
These delicious treats that are hassle-free and easy to prepare and that are yummy, crunchy and kid-friendly are the BEST. We make a lot of cereal treats (like Cheerios Snack Crunch and Mocha Puppy Chow) because I tend to buy cereal on sale and snack-food is one way to use it up in a non-breakfast way. Not only are cereal treats good to eat, but they are also so easy to make that kids can jump right in and help.
I love cooking for my kids. Cooking WITH kids is even more fun. Working in the kitchen with kids, or just having your kids in the kitchen to watch, is such a bonding opportunity. Not “cooking” can be fun, too.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Clusters
Chocolate Pretzel Clusters require just a few basic ingredients: pretzels, chocolate, cheerios, marshmallows, and sometimes peanuts.
- 1 cup Pretzel pieces
- 3/4 cup Cheerios
- 1/2 cup Mini-marshmallows
- 1 cup Chocolate chips, melted
- 1 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips, melted
- Break pretzels into pieces. Mix together with cheerios and mini-marshmallows.
- Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter chips together by microwaving in a glass bowl for a minute. After one minute, stir chips and microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between.
- Pour melted chips into the pretzel mix and stir to combine.
- Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate covered mixture onto wax or parchment paper and let sit for a few hours to harden.
