PB&J Pretzel Bars
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together crushed pretzels, graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Press into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake 8-10 min. Remove from oven and allow crust to cool.
2. In a separate mixing bowl, beat together butter and peanut butter. Add in confectioner's sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy and smooth. Spread over pretzel base and refrigerate for 1 hour. Once peanut butter is chilled, spread jam over top.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar and pretzels. Cut butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumble on top.
4. Bake for 15-20 min. or until crumble turns golden brown. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour. Cut into bars, garnish with fresh peanuts and enjoy.
