Pretzel Oreo Peanut Slice

pretzel slice recipe

This is not healthy. This is bad, but in life sometimes you have to be bad. Sometimes you have to mix oreos, pretzels, peanut butter, dark chocolate, butter and salt together and bake it. Yeah, I went there. 

I did buy 9% “fat free” condensed milk and light pretzels and light peanut butterโ€ฆ Iโ€™m going to tell myself this made it better.

I was invited to The Hungry Babushka’s house for a chocolate themed bloggy lunch and this was my contribution. It was bake to impress so I chose oreos, pretzels peanut butter and chocolate as my weapon of choice. 

Pretzel Oreo Peanut Slice      24 pieces 

Ingredients: 30g Oreo biscuits,  20gm milk arrowroot biscuits, 4 cups (120g) mini pretzels, 200g block of dark chocolate chopped, 250gm butter (150g melted + 100gm chopped), ยผ teaspoon salt flakes, 395gm sweetened condensed milk, ยผ cup brown sugar, 1 cup crunchy peanut butter.

Directions: 

  1. Grease a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 3cm above edges of pan. Using a food processor, process biscuits and half the pretzels until fine crumbs. Add 150gm melted butter. Process until well combined. Press mixture over base of prepared pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  2. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced.
  3. Meanwhile, make the Peanut filling. Place condensed milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Pour over prepared base, spreading evenly with a spatula. Bake for 10 minutes or until top is golden. Cool 15 minutes. 
  4. Place chocolate and extra butter in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until smooth, stirring with a metal spoon halfway through cooking.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture over filling. Arrange remaining pretzels over chocolate. Stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until set. Serve cut into small squares. Enjoy!

Pretzel Peanut Chocolate Slice 2

Everyone who tried them was very impressed with the different ‘stages’ of flavour.

There was the initial oreo and pretzel base, then a soft peanut butter fudge middle and a crunchy dark salty chocolate topping featuring a pretzel. 

If you ever have to bake anything, bake these and become the most popular person ever (for the short time they last at least..) but maybe make these a special occasion recipe.. not something to snack on every day! 

What do you think about the extreme combinations in this recipe? or What else can I combine to make a flavour intense sweet recipe? Let me know in the comments below!
