Ingredients:

For the Chubby Hubby Bars:

  • 2 cups mini pretzels, broken into small pieces
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • Flaky sea salt for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the Chubby Hubby Bars:

  1. Line a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides for easy removal.
  2. Spread the broken pretzels evenly across the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the creamy peanut butter, melted unsalted butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the pretzels in the pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the semisweet chocolate chips and heavy cream in 20-second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is smooth.
  6. Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter layer in the pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the chocolate layer, creating a zigzag pattern.
  8. If desired, sprinkle a pinch of flaky sea salt over the top for a delightful sweet and salty contrast.

Chill and Set: 9. Refrigerate the Chubby Hubby Bars for at least 2 hours, or until the bars are set.

Cut and Serve: 10. Once the bars have set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift them out of the pan.

  1. Place the bars on a cutting board and cut them into squares or bars of your desired size.
  2. Serve your Chubby Hubby Bars and enjoy the irresistible combination of flavors and textures.

Cook’s Notes:

  • Customize your Chubby Hubby Bars by adding crushed peanuts, chopped pretzels, or even a layer of caramel-filled chocolates for extra decadence.
  • If you prefer a different nut butter, such as almond or cashew butter, feel free to use it as a delicious alternative to peanut butter.
  • To make your own caramel sauce, simply melt caramel candies with a splash of cream in the microwave or on the stovetop until smooth and pourable.
  • Store your Chubby Hubby Bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can also be frozen for longer storage.
