The Christmas baking bug gets me every year and even though we will have an especially busy December this year, I want to make all the recipes. I have already made plenty of recipes for December and I just need to edit the pictures and write the posts. But I still have about 20 great recipe ideas milling around my head I’d love to make.

If I’m still sharing Christmas recipes in January, you’ll know why. I just about have enough posts for one every day in December, and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to post things that fast.

Also, while I’m dreaming of Christmas recipes, would you prefer a peppermint chocolate recipe, or a gingerbread recipe? I crave peppermint chocolate things at Christmas, but I have a soft spot for gingerbread, because my mom made gingerbread men every year for the Christmas cookie exchange.

These Peanut Butter Pretzel Buckeyes are a twist one of the most popular recipes on my site. I also have recipe for peanut butter balls with rice krispies that would be good sandwiched between two pretzels.

I know you love salty sweet treats because these salted caramel pretzel cupcakes are also super popular. I’m still not sure which version I prefer, the traditional peanut butter balls or these salty sweet pretzel ones. If you make them, let me know which ones you prefer.

While we are talking peanut butter pretzel treats, this Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie for Lil’ Luna looks delicious. Or these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars would also cure the salty sweet cravings.

Also, be sure to try my traditional buckeye recipe!

    Hi Mallory, I have more of a question then a comment. Do these need to be stored in the refrigerator and does the peanut spread when you bite into them?

    • Mallory says

      I would only store them for a day or so. They would keep better in the freezer for a week or so. the longer you store them, the more chance the pretzel will get stale.
