Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites (7)(10)

Boyfriend liked them, but not enough to crave them.
I loved them, of course!
I used the square checker pretzels because i also made Chocolate Love Buttons with them, so I didn't want to buy 2 backs of pretzels. I also dipped them in milk and white chocolate! yum!

1 cup       creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp      softened butter
1/2 cup     powdered sugar (maybe more)
3/4 cup     brown sugar (maybe more)
1 bag        semi-sweet chocolate chips
120-160     pretzels (makes 60-80 bites depending upon how much of the mixture you put
                   between each one)

1.   Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl with a fork/whisk/stand mixer.
2.   Add the powdered sugar and brown sugar. Mix to combine.
3.   Roll the mixture into balls. If they still stick to your hands add a little more of each sugar until
     they are thicker and less sticky.
4.   Roll each portion (about a teaspoon) into small balls and sandwich them between two
     whole pretzels.
5.   Stick the whole tray in the freezer for about half an hour.
6.   Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30 second intervals,
     stirring occasionally until completely melted.
7.   Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each halfway into the
     melted chocolate.
8.   When they are all dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely.
9.   Store the sandwiches in the refrigerator until serving time.
