This post will be a drive by. We lost our great-aunt this week and I am in NJ spending time with my family and celebrating her life.
I made these marshmallow pretzel bars a few weeks ago to bring to a friend’s house. These are a fun twist on the rice krispie treat. I love a dessert that you can make in 5 minutes. It took me longer to crush the pretzels than anything else. After I took the pictures, I decided to fancy them up a little and dip them in chocolate. I dipped half in the chocolate and sprinkled a little sea salt on top to make them pretty.
2 teaspoons butter
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
4 Tablespoons dark chocolate chips
4 Tablespoons peanut butter chips
6 cups chopped broken mini pretzels
1 teaspoon sea salt
Line an 8×8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows.
Stir until melted. It takes about 3 minutes.
Take the pan off of the heat and add both chips.
And pretzel pieces.
Line an 8×8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Press the mixture into the pan.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Allow to cool before cutting. Lift the bars out of the pan and cut into squares.
I dipped mine in chocolate and sprinkled with extra salt. Why not?
