Ingredients

 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
30 braided honey-wheat pretzel twists (such as Snyder's of Hanover)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION

2. Place chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring every 15 seconds.
3. Stir in peanut butter until smooth.
4. Dip and roll one pretzel at a time in the chocolate mix, keeping one end of the pretzel “clean” as a handle. Place each pretzel on the prepared pan.
