No-Bake Buckeye Pretzel Bars recipe is every peanut butter and chocolate lover's dream! This sweet and salty treat doesn't even require turning on your oven!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: one 9x13 pan
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 cups pretzel sticks, crushed (I measured before crushing, but you can do whatever you like!)
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • Crushed pretzels (about 2 cups or as much as you prefer)
  1. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, softened butter, powdered sugar and crushed pretzel sticks. Press evenly into prepared pan.
  3. In the microwave (can also use a double broiler), melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  4. Spread this over the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle on crushed pretzels.
  5. Refrigerate for AT LEAST one hour before cutting into squares and cut them while they are cold so they don't get too messy. Keep leftovers refrigerated.
