Its almost Valentine's Day!! I love making these delicious treats for my family and friends! The graham cracker crust paired with the dark chocolate, peanut butter, and pretzels is the best combination of flavors!! I also really love a good sweet and salty mix. They are so easy to put together and I always have a lot of hands trying to help me in the kitchen with this recipe! (Which I love when the kids get involved!!) Happy Valentine's Day!! xo
