In this decadent tart, Lindsey has taken the humble pretzel and given it the attention it deserves: as the star ingredient in her pretzel-based crust. Filled with elegant (but simple) swirls of chocolate ganache and peanut butter, this dessert is delicious! Julia, Recipe Hunter

THE RECIPE

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Tart

From Snack Food to Tart Crust

Soft or crunchy, dipped in mustard or chocolate, as a sandwich roll or in a snack bowl, pretzels are a great crowd pleaser. We especially love them as a salty counterpoint in sugary desserts. A lot of recipes incorporate pretzels as an accent rather than a key ingredient, but Lindsey’s Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Tart transforms them from garnish to essential element. Crunchy pretzels are mashed up to create the base for a delicious cookie crust, which is then layered with swirls of chocolate and peanut butter for a decadent dessert experience that is simple yet fancy, and oh so delicious. Whip one up to share with friends and celebrate National Pretzel Day by bringing this deserving snack staple to center stage!
