Take 5 Candy Bar Recipe {Semi-Homemade}

I told you yesterday how I spent a whole bunch of time with my kiddos this weekend.  It just felt right and sacred.  We made some wannabe Take 5 candy bar bites.  Have you ever had a Take 5 Candy bar? Oh my it ranks right up there with a Twix bar if you ask me- chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, pretzels and peanuts! I had those pretzel Rolo bites at a party last week and I was reminded how easy and yummy they are.  Well I decided to kick those up a notch and make some Take 5 bites.

Ingredients:

Rolos

Peanut Butter

Unsalted Peanuts

Pretzels (I used the square grid-like ones)

1.  Lightly spread peanut butter onto your pretzels being careful not to smoosh it through where it is oozing out the other side.

2.  Let the little hands use the food chopper (because they think it is so cool) to chop up some of the unsalted peanuts.  Sprinkle some of the nuts onto the peanut buttered pretzel.

3.  Put a Rollo on top of the nuts.  Then cook it for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees.rolo_peanut_butter_pretzel_bites

4.  Take a greased spoon and smoosh the chocolate onto the nuts to melt it.

5. Smoosh a half of a peanut onto the top.

Oh my they are way better than just the pretzel Rolo bites.  Yum-O! I packaged them up in a Dollar Tree jar and put some vinyl on it with a cute tag.

    These look so yummy! I’m adding them to my ‘to-bake’ list! :)

    Oh I think the added peanut butter would make these delicious! One year I over baked the rolos/pretzels – not burned, but ugly – so I dipped them in white chocolate to make them pretty. Delish!

    Shut the front door! Take 5 is my favorite candy. I think it’s the perfect balance of salty and sweet. I guess I know what I’ll be making this weekend now. Thanks for the recipe!
