I’ve lost track of how many homemade candy bars I made over the years, but is there really such a thing as too many? These salted peanut butter pretzel chocolate bars are a mashup of my beloved vegan twix bars and my peanut butter pretzel fudge.
They have a shortbread crust, a peanut butter caramel filling, and are topped with salted pretzels and melted chocolate. They’re so delicious, and are vegan + gluten free friendly!
I love the different flavors and textures in this bar. The salty and sweet chocolate bar combo just can’t be beat. These are kind of like Take5 candy bars, which I loved as a kid, but with much simpler ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- almond flour- I love using a fine almond flour for less of a grainy texture
- cassava or coconut flour
- coconut oil- if you don’t love the taste of coconut, you can use refined coconut oil for a neutral taste!
- creamy peanut butter
- pure maple syrup
- salted pretzels- use gluten-free pretzels if needed!
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
- sea salt
You bake the shortbread crust, top it with the peanut butter caramel, and then add your chocolate pretzel layer!
I love the texture of these from the fridge, but you can freeze or refrigerate depending on your preference! If you’re not a huge peanut butter fan, you can substitute any other nut or seed butter of choice.
These salted peanut butter pretzel chocolate bars are the perfect little bites when you’re craving something sweet. If you’re part of the daily dessert club like me, you’ll love having these around!
