Pretzel M&M Bars

Posted by: Annie

Pretzels and chocolate have always been one of my favorite combinations. That being said, the new Pretzel M &M’s are constantly finding their way into my shopping cart. I was in a baking mood after work yesterday and really wanted to bake something involving pretzel M&M’s, so I was thrilled to find a recipe that called for not only M&M’s, but peanut butter. From there on Peanut Butter Pretzel Crumbly Bars were born. I adapted the recipe from here.  Enjoy!

What You Will Need:

1 stick butter
2 eggs
1 cup peanut butter
¾ cup sugar
2/3 cup  packed dark brown sugar
2 cups flour
¾ tsp baking soda
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
1 “Medium” Bag Pretzel M&M’s (9.9 oz)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the butter, eggs, peanut butter, dark brown sugar and sugar. Gradually mix in  the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix until smooth. Remove 1 ½ cups of the dough mixture and set aside. Press the remaining dough into the bottom of an ungreased 13x9 pan. Add the M&M candies to the reserved dough and crumble into the pan pressing down lightly. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cut into bars.


  1. I'm going to make these tonight just wanted to check 1 stick of butter is how much in canada typically all our butter is sold in 1lb chunks.



    1. Hi Rachel! 1 stick of butter is equal to 1/2 cup. If you need grams or ounces conversions, I found a handy table here:

      Enjoy the bars! :)
