Salty, Sweet, & Satisfying 😋🍫

Hello Gardeners!

We are always on the lookout for recipes that support a healthy lifestyle, are fun + simple, and accessible to gardeners of all ages. Cooking and preparing food is such a wonderful way to teach young gardeners life skills, learn about food science, explore creativity, and gain responsibility.

Today on the blog, we are making chocolate-dipped Peanut Butter Pretzels. This salty, sweet treat is sure to put a smile on your face.’

Here is what you’ll need:

Pretzels (we recommend the grid-shaped ones)

Peanut butter (sub sunbutter for allergies!)

Dark chocolate chips

We are essentially making peanut butter sandwiches, but subbing bread for pretzels. Spread a small dollop of peanut butter on one pretzel and place another on top.

Next, melt your chocolate chips, then dip one side of each pretzel sandwich in the chocolatey goodness. Place the dipped pretzels on a plate or parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes or until chocolate and peanut butter harden up a bit.

This activity is #PullYourWeedsApproved because it’s:

  • A healthy, snacking option! Okay, yes, a plate of fresh veggies is better, but if you are craving a sweet treat, this has protein and antioxidants.

  • A fun #STEM lesson! What’s better than learning about #ReversibleChange and melted chocolate?

  • Supportive of all ages and abilities. This #NoBake treat requires minimal supervision!
