Peanut butter pretzel bites

Sticky peanut butter sandwhiched between seasalted pretzels, dipped in dark chocolate.

These simple bites are a sneaky treat (especially at Christmas!) and can disapeer in seconds! There are some tips though! The salty peanut butter and pretzels are topped off with dark chocolate, but make sure its at least 70% cocoa solids so that the chocolate isn't too sweet as it will make the snack sickly. you may have seen a similar recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction and I have spoken with her and she agrees that, since I thought of and made these before I even knew about her recipe, she doesn't mind me sharing these with you!
With this recipe its important that, once the mixture has been cooled, that you keep you hands cool at all times so the mixture keeps workable!

I always like to melt chocolate by steaming it, by putting it in a glass bowl on top of a small pan that has a little water in it, once brought to the boil the steam will melt the chocolate!

    4 (plus) tbsp peanut butter
    10g plain flour for every tbsp
    100g baking chocolate
    Salted Pretzels
    Mix the flour and the peanut butter together, chill for at least 2 hours. Melt the chocolate over medium heat until smooth. Remove mixture from the fridge and roll into small balls. Sandwhich between two pretzels. Immediately dip in chocolate and allow to set
