Nutella/Peanut Butter covered pretzels

Found THIS RECIPE on Pinterest and made it for a BBQ.  I can't express enough how easy and yummy this recipe was!!  In fact, I will be using this recipe as a staple for some upcoming football events.  The peanuts really added to this mix and I would suggest not omitting them.  Also, for our team I'll be using our college colors for the jimmies :)

Original recipe: Averie Cooks

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup Nutella
about 3 1/2 to 4 cups checkerboard mini pretzels
about 2 cups honey-roasted peanuts (or regular peanuts, or another favorite nut; or omit)
about 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 heaping cup sprinkles (jimmies), optional


  1. Combine peanut butter and Nutella in a large microwave-safe bowl, and heat to melt, about 1 minute on high power. Stir to combine. (I only use commercial peanut butter like Jif or Peter Pan and have not tried it with homemade peanut butter)
  2. Add the pretzels, peanuts, and stir to coat evenly.
  3. Add 2 cups confectioners' sugar, and toss to coat evenly. Mix should be fairly dry. Add 1/2 cup additional sugar, or as needed, to dry it out.
  4. Add sprinkles, tossing well to distribute.
  5. Transfer mix to a one-gallon plastic ziptop bag or other airtight container. Serve immediately, or serve chilled. I prefer to store this mix the freezer. It will keep airtight at room temperature for weeks, or in the freezer for months. Recipe may be kept gluten-free by using gluten-free pretzels.
