Triple P Surprise (Peggy's Pretzel Peanut Butter)

I bought a huge bag of Pretzel Crisps a few months ago at Costco.  I couldn't believe how good they were, considering they were pretzels.  After awhile I was getting a little bored with them so I started putting a little peanut butter on each one.  Not exactly the healthiest way to eat pretzels, but they were delicious.  I thought there's got to be something else I can do with these pretzels.  Yesterday I bought another huge bag of Pretzel Crisps and I finally figured out what it was missing:  CHOCOLATE!  These taste so good that my daughter decided they tasted better than the chocolate chip cookies she made yesterday. There is just the right amount of sweet, salt and peanut butter.   I guarantee that if you take these to a party, they will be a hit.  Let me know what you think!

26 pretzel crisps
peanut butter
2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
 (I used semi-sweet but milk chocolate would be  
 delicious as well)
1 Tbs. shortening

Find 26 whole pretzels.  Put the broken ones in a bowl to snack on while you are making these.  Spread about 1/8" of peanut butter on one pretzel. 

Make a sandwich with another pretzel.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in microwave on high one minute.  Continue melting for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until completely melted.  Dip each pretzel sandwich in melted chocolate.  Lift with fork and tap off excess chocolate.  Place on waxed paper.

Let chocolate harden  If you need it to harden quicker, place in refrigerator. Makes 13.

Quick ... easy ... yummy!
