These Reeses pretzel bites are a really yummy sweet and salty treats that are a HIT when you are asked to bring something sweet to someone’s house. Having a party of your own or just want something new for dessert? (originally published 12/13, affiliate links present)

Not only are they yummy and inexpensive to make, but they are great to make with your children. We call them Reese’s sweet and salty can also use Hershey’s Kisses as well. If you want to make more than one treat with this candy, try our reeses fudge recipe too.

Pretzel Peanut Butter Cup Recipe

During the holidays it is all about bite sized treats right? Having the kids in the kitchen wanting to help is great but some things they can’t do. This one they can and it will keep them busy.

You literally need 2 things, Reese’s peanut butter cups and pretzels. The square waffle shaped ones are best and if you have a peanut allergy you can use Hershey’s Kisses instead. We use them to make a copycat Dot’s mustard pretzels at home too.

Reeses Pretzel Bites

Have them unwrap each one and put them in a bowl. Then line up the pretzels on a cookie sheet. Lay a candy on top of each one. Believe me they will think this is beyond fun! Plus it only takes 2 min. in the oven so they are ready really fast so they can try a few when they are done.

  • Start off by spreading all the square pretzels on a cookie sheet in one layer
  • Unwrap all the Reese’s cups & put in a bowl ahead of time.
  • Then place the larger side of the peanut butter cup down on to each pretzel
  • Put in the oven at about 200 degrees for literally just 2 min. or so until just melted, watch them closely
  • Pull out of the oven and place a 2nd square pretzel on top, let set until chocolate is hard again & enjoy!

We have a printable recipe at the bottom of this post you can keep on hand too. If you have a cookie baking day this one is great to throw together when little ones get hangry while they’re waiting, and waiting.
