So if you need an easy dessert recipe for Mothers Day - try this one.
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) butter, melted
2 cups pretzel rods, crushed into crumbs
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup plus 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, add the melted butter, pretzel crumbs, confectioners' sugar and 1 cup of the peanut butter and stir together until well combined. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9-by-13-by-2inch baking dish. Combine the chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 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. Two intervals should be enough. Mix to blend, then spread over the peanut-butter-pretzel layer.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.
