Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars {THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS LINKY PARTY #99}

THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS has changed, you can now link up ANY recipe you'd like. Come one, Come all. NO rules, NO requirements, just link up any recipe (or food related craft items) and hop around to visit all the great recipes.

Here is a new dessert that is high on my step-sons list of new desserts he likes. This was another treat I took to Vegas with us. Yes, he is one lucky guy that his step-mama loves him so much.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
adapted by me, recipe found at Very Best Baking

2 cups chunky peanut butter, divided
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar, divided
4 cups pretzels (broken and roughly chopped), divided
2 cups chocolate chip cookies

Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with foil leaving an overhang on two sides. Lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Beat 1-1/4 cups of peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar, until mixed. Stir in remaining 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 cups pretzel pieces and 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Press evenly into prepared baking pan. Smooth the top with spatula.

Microwave the remaining 1-1/2 cups morsels and 3/4 cups peanut butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl for 40 seconds, stir and repeat until melted, but do not burn. Spread chocolate layer evenly over powdered sugar mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining pretzel pieces, pressing down lightly. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; peel off foil. Cut into pieces. Store in covered container in refrigerator or freeze until ready to eat.
