Peanut Butter Crunch Poppers

This recipe is for all my fellow peanut butter lovers out there!

Peanut Butter Crunch Poppers

  • 1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
  • 1 package of Nutter Butter cookies
  • 1 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1 pkg waffle shaped mini pretzels
  • 1 bag peanut butter chips for drizzling and decorating

Drop all Nutter Butter cookies in large food processor and pulse until finely crumbled.  Transfer to large mixing bowl.  Add in cream cheese and peanut butter and stir until thoroughly mixed.  On cookie sheet, line up pretzel in rows.  Form peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls and place one on top of each waffle pretzel until all of the mixture is used up.  Top with another waffle pretzel and gently push down to secure pretzel in its place.

In small baggie melt 1 c. of the peanut butter baking chips in microwave.  Snip off a small corner of the baggie and squeeze to drizzle the peanut butter on top of each pretzel treat.  Before it hardens, place another peanut butter chip on top for decoration.

Allow to harden.  Then grab with your fingers and pop in your mouth for some pure peanut butter enjoyment!



Peanut butter is one of America’s favorite foods. 

Creamy.  Crunchy. Ooey.  Gooey.

These simple, easy to make peanut butter treats will be gone before you know it!

My recipe is a variation of this one found on Picky Palate, a site I love!

Now I am preparing for a holiday cookie exchange party tonight.  I’ve got to take 5 dozen treats!  That equals ALOT of time in the kitchen this afternoon.  So I should come home with several dozen treats from others.  Hoping I get some good ideas!
