No Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pretzel Cups

No Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pretzel Cups on repeat because there’s chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels involved, so this dessert is officially winning.

you don’t have to turn on your oven and the cups are totally freezer friendly.

you know how i love my freezer desserts!

reaching into the freezer, pulling out No Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pretzel Cups and letting them thaw a bit until fudgy perfection equates true bliss.

the base is a combination of cocoa powder, medjool dates, peanut butter, dairy free milk and pretzels.

a sweet and salty combo is EVERYTHING and No Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pretzel Cups are perfectly balanced.

the dates are the best touch because they’re naturally sweet and make the base this deliciously sticky brownie texture.

then, the filling is comprised of melted chocolate, more peanut butter and some dairy free milk.

once you mix everything together, you will get this thiiiiiick chocolate pb mixture and it freezes into FUDGE.
