Union Summer: No Bake Peanut Butter-Chocolate-Pretzel Bars

pretzel bars

By Shelly Lurie

It’s way too hot to cook anything in the oven during the summer. So, we’ve put together a delicious dessert recipe that requires zero baking! You won’t break a sweat making this treat and the recipe only requires a handful of ingredients that you most likely already have!

As always, our recipes are designed to be prepared with union-made ingredients and support unionized grocery stores.

Ingredients (purchase from your local unionized grocery store):

1 ½ sticks (12 tbsp) Horizon butter, melted
2 cups Rold Gold pretzel rods, crushed into crumbs
1 ½ cups Domino confectioners’ sugar
1 cup & ¼ cup smooth JIF peanut butter
1 ½ cups BAKER’S (by Kraft) milk chocolate chips


1.    In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, pretzel crumbs, confectioners’ sugar and 1 cup of the peanut butter. Stir until well combined.
2.    Press the mixture evenly onto the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish.
3.    Combine the chocolate chips and the remaining ¼ cup of peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate and peanut butter are melted and smooth – about 2 30-second intervals.
4.    Spread the chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the peanut butter-pretzel layer.
5.    Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then cut into squares.
