Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

These soft and chewy Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars are packed with M&Ms and pretzels, making them the perfect back to school or game day snack.

I took all the little odds and ends you would normally snack on after school or during game day and added them into the new Krusteaz Bakery Style Double Peanut Butter cookie mix.

And not only are these Peanut Butter Pretzel bars super simple to make and oh so delicious, I love that you don’t have to fill your plate with cookies, candies, and pretzels. By grabbing one of these bars, you’re getting all your favorite snacks in one bite.

LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: To make it super easy for you to cut these bars into squares, line your 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the bars have cooled lift the bars out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Use a sharp knife to cut these bars into squares and enjoy!

PRETZELS & M&Ms: Once I press the dough into the prepared pan, I like to press a couple more crushed pretzels and M&Ms on the top of the bars before I bake them.
