Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Ritz Bars

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Ritz Bars are seriously to die for! They taste similar to a Reese's Peanut Butter cup but with crunchy pretzels too for extra salty crunch. These may be some of my favorite treats I've ever made.

Recipe Notes

I crushed my pretzels and crackers using a food processor. You could also use a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin or something heavy.
