Ingredients

3/4
cup powdered sugar
1/2
cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
3
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
3
tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2
teaspoon Watkins™ Pure Vanilla Extract
1
can Pillsbury™ refrigerated original breadsticks (12 breadsticks)
1

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with Reynolds® Parchment Paper.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar, peanut butter, cocoa, whipping cream and vanilla until well blended.
  • 3 Unroll dough on work surface; separate into 12 breadsticks. Pinch ends of 2 breadsticks together; repeat with remaining dough to make 6 long breadsticks. Press each breadstick to form 12x2-inch strip.

Fold dough lengthwise over chocolate ropes; press edges firmly to seal. Stretch each breadstick slightly. Shape rope into U-shape; cross ends, and place over bottom of U to form pretzel shape. Place seam side down on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining chocolate ropes and breadstick strips.
