Honey Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites | balls, healthy, no bake, easy, buckeyes, chocolate | hungrybynature.comIf I were to create a dessert of my dreams, these honey peanut butter pretzel bites would be it. So I guess I DID create the dessert of my dreams!

When I think of a dream dessert, I think of 3 things:

  1. Chocolate. There must be chocolate in some form, preferably dark.
  2. Not too sweet. Gone are the days when I was a raging sweet tooth-aholic. As a kid I could literally eat candy nonstop. Thank goodness my body has a better sense for the amount of sugar that is actually appropriate. This is why I like a little salt or spice to balance out all that sweet.
  3. Bite-sized. This is kind of a weird one. As I mentioned, my sweet tooth used to be out of control and I still have some self control issues around food – mostly I just really love it and want to eat delicious things all the time. So I like to make desserts that are small so that I am able to enjoy them without going overboard. Plus, how adorable are bite-sized desserts?! Answer: way cuter than the normal size 😉

Oh and #4 would have to be that the preparation is EASY. I love desserts that can be made in a food processor and require no baking; and yes, these adorable little bites hit on all 4 of my requirements!

In my former non-Celiac life, I loved eating pretzels with peanut butter – specifically the Kirkland pb filled pretzel nuggets. I mean, they’re called nuggets so how could I not love them?! Obviously, those are not okay in my now Celiac-life. I was doing some Instagram searching to find companies creating gluten free snacks to fill my pretzel void and I hit the jackpot – Quinn Snacks!!

Please note that this post is not sponsored. Quinn Snacks did send me some of their product to try and I freaking LOVE it – which is why I am telling you about it. You know I only share products with you that I actually enjoy and eat on a regular basis; and I hope you give Quinn Snacks a try!

The Farm-to-Bag philosophy is what drew me to Quinn Snacks.

You’ve heard of farm-to-table dining, right? Farm-to-table restaurants tell you, the customer, where their food comes from; specifically what farms they source their beef, chicken, and veggies from. Well farm-to-bag is essentially the same thing! Quinn Snacks shares with their consumers, via their website, all of the growers and suppliers of their ingredients. You can meet the people who run these farms, hear their stories, and see how their products are made. Talk about transparency! Needless to say, I’m into it.

And yes, transparency is all well and good, but the products need to actually taste good too. You know?! Good news is, THEY DO.

Quinn Snack’s Touch of Honey Pretzels are the star ingredient in these bites! Along with the pretzels, you’ll need 2 cups of roasted and unsalted peanuts, 1 Tablespoon of honey, and some dark chocolate. That’s it. Ja feel?

A little food processor action, some rolling, chill time, and chocolate dipping. 4 ingredients and 4 steps is all that stands between you and this simple dessert! So dreamy, right?!

Sweet, salty, chocolate-y, peanut-y, and pretzel-y. These honey peanut butter pretzel bites are the dream team of desserts - made with Quinn Snacks!
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Serves: Approximately 26 bites
Ingredients
  • 2 cups peanuts, roasted and unsalted
  • 1-7 ounce bag Quinn Snacks Touch of Honey Pretzels
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate
Instructions
  1. Add the peanuts to your food processor and process until it is almost peanut butter consistency. For me this took about 7 minutes.
  2. Take the bag of pretzels and break them down - just crunch up the bag so that the pretzels are smaller in size. Add the pretzels and honey to the food processor and process until the mixture comes together and forms a dough.
  3. Roll the dough into balls, about an inch in diameter, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Chill in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes just to set the bites.
  4. Using a double boiler or your microwave, melt the dark chocolate. If needed, you can add a small amount of coconut oil to help the chocolate melt.
  5. Dip the chilled peanut butter bites into the chocolate and place back on the parchment lined sheet. Do this for all bites.
  6. Use remaining chocolate and drizzle the tops.
  7. Chill for 30 minutes in the freezer and store in the fridge.

Don’t forget to pin this for later!

    Peanut butter and pretzels are one of my go-to snacks. I love that you’ve made that combo into a dessert! I subsisted almost entirely on candy in high school and college; thank goodness my adult self has more sense and can’t tolerate all that sweet stuff anymore :).

      Isn’t it funny how our bodies adapt like that?! And thank goodness – otherwise mine would be totally filled with sugar! Thanks Kelsie 🙂
