Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bark Recipe

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bark Recipe | I’m always looking for simple handmade gifts that can be put together quite quickly – especially gifts that I can have, on- hand, for hostess gifts or unexpected visitors during the holidays.


Today I have an easy bark recipe to share that takes just minutes to whip up and requires just a few key ingredients.

The best thing about chocolate bark is that it can customized with just about any toppings you have available in your pantry. Cookies, candy, candy canes – you can’t really go wrong crushing up your favorites and sprinkling them on a bed of rich chocolate!


This bark combines sweet chocolate and creamy peanut butter along with salty pretzels and crunchy nuts.


Instead of pouring the melted chocolate into a pan – pour it into a few cookie cutters for special presentation.


Once chilled, the bark pops right out of the cookie cutters and is ready for packaging. The shapes are adorable on their own – a clear, plain bag and some bakers twine is all it takes.

I like to label our small gifts with a homemade with love tag and made a few that can be printed here: Printable Handmade Holiday Tags

  1. Food gifts are the best. Putting the chocolate in cookie cutter shapes is a great idea to make the gift extra special. I’m going to remember this especially at Christmas time.
