Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Filled Jalapenos Pops

Is it a dessert or is it a snack? Chocolate covered peanut butter filled jalapeno pops are the new rage! If you're up for trying something new, I highly recommend you give these a try! Just make sure you take one bite at a time....they got some heat to them.

Usually you see baked jalapeno poppers, so coming across this recipe was a bit out of the ordinary for me. Regardless, I decided to give them a try and boy am I happy I did...they were sooooo tasty!

If you plan to give this treat a try, make sure you notify that people you're serving them to that they do come with some heat...and when I say heat, I mean HEAT! So it would be safe to say that unless you are a fan of spicy food, this may not be the dessert for you.

1. Cut tops of the jalapenos and carefully remove the seeds using a small knife.

2. Blend peanut butter, sugar and salt in a small bowl. Spoon into emptied jalapenos or use a piping bag to make life easier.

3. Insert pretzel stick into peanut butter about halfway into jalapeno.

4. Melt dark chocolate in a small bowl(I used a mason jar for easy dipping), microwave in 30 sec intervals stirring between zaps until smooth.

5. Dip jalapenos in chocolate and totally submerged to cover the entire jalapeno in chocolate.

6. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet to set. Meanwhile melt white chocolate the same way, either drizzle over jalapenos with a spoon or again to make life easier use a small piping bag. Let set again and enjoy your fiery sweets!
