Chocolate Dipped Pretzels w/Peanut Butter

Anyone remember my Rolo Turtles here?

Well we made these babies the same evening!
Anyone want to name these because I don't have a good name!? 
Go ahead and give me some ideas haha.
I was just in one of those little dessert moods!

Here are the ingredients you need: 
1 bag of pretzels
1 jar of peanut butter
16 oz. bag of chocolate chips 
2 T. shortening (not pictured bc shortening is gross if you ask me)

All you do is smear a little peanut butter on and make a little peanut butter sandwich!

Make chocolate to dip them in...
Melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. 
And this is where you can choose how much you want to make since I never really go by recipes for things like this. I just threw in chocolate and shortening and got a good chocolate mixture!

 Make sure you put these in the fridge for a little bit so the chocolate hardens!
And there you have it!
Chocolate Dipped Pretzels w/Peanut Butter!
I think these along with our Rolo Turtles (here) will be perfect for a little holiday treat bag!

And just throwing this out there, you should probably take a look at these Cookie Stuffed Oreos here!

PS. Don't judge my photos. I've had these photos in a draft saved and they just pissed me off because they are all blurry up close haha. I am no photographer but sometime I will figure it out. Or you could help me! Tips?! Until then, enjoy the blurriness lol.

  2. for my food photos i usually change the camera setting to macro. but maybe you already tried that? its the flower button on the camera. you want the flower on. plus lighting is key. try to get the light as natural as possible.

    ps. these look so good!

  12. These look really yummy but apparently since I am in my 30's and have 3 kids I am not allowed to eat this stuff anymore. I miss the days when I didn't know what a calorie was.
