Does it get any better???

Than Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Pretzels?
I saw a recipe for these tasty little goodies on a blog a few months ago, but of course last night when I went to look for it..... POOF! It was no where to be found, and I can't for the life of me think of where I found it, soooooooo if any of you remember seeing them or posting about them I would love to know. I made up my own filling for them but am really wanting to know what the original filling for them has in it. Ugh, you all know who I blame my memory loss on right??

No, not Aliens!!! Geezzzzz.

I blame it on my kids, have you ever noticed that kids NEVER forget anything?!?! Unless it pertains to chores or homework, but I am convinced that is voluntary forgetfulness. But say you tell them- Sure, I will wash your blue and white striped shirt for you to wear tomorrow, and you forget (big surprise) and they remember right before they are heading out the door next day for school!!! And the only reason they remember is because the little stinkers took YOUR memory and are hoarding it all!!!!!
Anyway the only help for Memory loss is Chocolate of course. So a few of these little treasures ought to fix me right up, for a little while anyway :)

Chocolate PB Pretzel Bites
1 bag Pretzel Butter Snaps
1/2c. chocolate chips
2c. peanut butter
1/2c. graham crackers
1/2c. saltines crackers
2c. powdered sugar
2t. vanilla

Run the crackers through a food processor until they are finely ground, then mix them together with the peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl and heat in the microwave in 30 sec. intervals until melted. Roll the peanut butter mixture into small balls and press in between 2 pretzel squares. Then dip one end in the chocolate and place on wax paper till dry.

you're right! it doesn't get any better than chocolate and PB! I usually buy these at Henry's, but it would be so much more fun to make my own!! :)

These look incredible!! Oh my - If I made these I would eat the whole tray :D I have the same memory loss you suffer from. I totally blame mine on the kids :D I think I lost a little of my mind with each child.

I truly think I read a report somewhere that chocolate does improve memory :) (and also gives you smooth skin, lucious hair, and helps you lose weight :)

these look delicious!!!

No. No it does not.

I saw these somewhere recently, too. I keep thinking it was on AR, though, and not a blog. They look tasty!

I'm so relieved that I'm not the only one suffering from memory loss. I forgot to give my daughter spending money for the book fair at school on Monday. We got a note telling us that her class would be going on Monday, but they sent it home on Friday. I was supposed to remember that all weekend? No biggie, they let her (and the 20 other kids whose parents forgot) go back on Tuesday.

As soon as I saw these they looked familiar to me. I think Cookies and Cups has a similar version of these, though I'm not sure that's where you saw them.

They look simply delicious!

This is so fantastic. Flipz are one of my fav treats, but with the pb in the middle, even better.
