Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Dragées
Makes about 2 cups
Inspired by Betty Crocker
2 cups (150 grams) peanut butter filled pretzels (TJ’s makes an excellent variety) (…just sayin’)
1/2 cup (100 grams) semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons (28 grams) butter
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) vanilla
1 cup (125 grams) powdered sugar
Measure the powdered sugar into a large bowl and the peanut butter filled pretzels into another large bowl. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Set all of this business aside.
Melt the chocolate, butter, and a pinch of salt together in a medium heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the chocolate over the pretzels and stir until all the pretzels are evenly coated. Pour the mixture into the bowl of powdered sugar and toss until each piece is well covered. The pretzels will want to stick together, but break them up so each one gets a little bath in the powdered sugar.
Spread the coated pretzels on the prepared sheet to cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
