Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pretzels

Made Famous By:  Heather McMullin

My Dad thinks he is hilarious.  And to be honest, he is hilarious.  

THERE I said it!!J

Growing up if you were going to the restroom you had to be aware and anticipate the sound of a “gun shot” inevitably going off during your visit to the porcelain throne.

And by “gun shot” I mean my Dad coming and hitting the door as hard as he can scaring the crap right out of you!!!! Literally!!! (Pun intended!)  

After scaring the crap out of you he then would yell, “Did you hear that gun shot??????!!!!!!!”

Imagine yourself peacefully taking care of business when all of a sudden someone walks by and bangs on the door as hard and as loud as they possibly can.  Let’s just say when that happens to you, you jolt into the air and involuntarily scream at the top of your lungs……with your pants and undies around your ankles!

I can’t even count the number of times this has happened to me.  These days, having a “gun shot” go off while you are going to the restroom, still happens but I am prepared now!!  

You learn to always anticipate said “gun shot”.  Only now I don’t give my Dad the pleasure of my screech of horror any more.  I have learned to hold it in even if I do jump two feet into the air from fright.

Has that happened to anyone else besides my siblings and I???

I do have a confession though……I have done this to my OWN children……

It’s true.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Someday they will have their own blogs and tell their readers about their Mom who thinks she is the funniest person on earth!  I think you should try it and then tell me about how you scared the crap right out of the people you love!!!  


These delightful little snacks were  born out of my undying love for the mini peanut butter cups at Trader Joe’s.  They are tiny little drops of heaven with chocolate inside of them. 

Then you put them on top of a pretzel and chocolate and……BE STILL MY SOUL, MAGIC happens!!!!!

The best part about them is that you can put them together in snap and it looks like you have spent hours on a masterpiece, which of course they are!! 

Peanut Butter Cup Pretzels
1 bag Pretzels
Chocolate Almond Bark
1 box Mini Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joe’s
Holiday Sprinkles

*Lay out a couple sheets of wax paper
*Lay the pretzels out on the wax paper.
*Melt the almond bark per the instructions on the back of the package. 
*After the chocolate almond bark is melted drizzle a little on each pretzel.  Then place three mini peanut butter cups on each pretzel and finish off with sprinkles.
*Work in small batches.  It is best to only drizzle 6 pretzels with chocolate at a time and then place the peanut butter cups and sprinkles on those six before moving on.  This way the chocolate will still be melted enough to make the sprinkles stick.
*Continue until all the pretzels are covered in chocolate and have mini peanut butter cups and sprinkles on them.
