No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars

I think its pretty safe to say that I LOVE the combo of chocolate and peanut butter and want to try any recipe that marries the two together. There are some yummy ingredients to add to this family also! Can't wait to try!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars

Nonstick cooking spray

2 cups ~ natural creamy peanut butter, divided

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) ~ unsalted butter, softened

2 cups ~ powdered sugar, divided

4 cups ~ pretzel twists, divided

2 cups (12 oz) ~ semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided

1.  Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment leaving an overhang on the sides. Lightly spray parchment with nonstick cooking spray.

2.  Beat 1 1/4 cups peanut butter and butter in large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar. Stir in remaining 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 cups pretzel that have been broken into small piece (the smaller the better) and 1/2 cup morsels. Press evenly into prepared baking pan. Smooth top with spatula.

3.  Microwave remaining 1 1/2 cups morsels and 3/4 cup peanut butter in medium in a microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Spread chocolate layer evenly over powdered sugar mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining pretzels that have been broken into pieces, pressing down lightly.

4.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; peel off parchment. Store in covered container in refrigerator
