What to Eat Wednesday- or What pirates eat

Tucker and I made these one afternoon a few weeks ago.
So easy and so yum.

They look like plain chocolate covered pretzels don't they?
(As if pretzels covered in chocolate is plain! HA!)
But hiding under the sweet chocolate is Peanut Butter!

You need Pretzel rods, creamy Peanut butter and any kind of melting chocolate.

I found it works best if you heat the peanut butter up a little then dip the pretzel rod in until its covered with as much peanut butter as you like. Then place on waxed paper in the freezer. I put wax paper on a cookie sheet to help with transferring it in and out of the freezer.

After the pretzel and peanut butter have had time to firm up, then dip them again, this time in melted chocolate. At this point you can stick them back in the freezer or leave them out.

Tucker was helping me dip the pretzels in the chocolate. We were stirring and swirling the pretzel rods in the chocolate when Tucker said, "These seem like a snack that a pirate would eat." I found that to be pretty funny, because in our house I am the only one that chooses pirate in the whole "ninja/pirate" debate.

I just had to ask him if he thought Ninja's would like them too.
When I did he quickly said, "No! Ninja's don't eat!"
Oh really?
"No, they have that thing covering their mouth. I think they are allergic."

That explains why ninjas are so dang skinny.

We must be a family of ninjas.

Pretzels are the one thing that has been missed the most since we all went gluten-free.
