Gooey Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars

Tried to think of  a shorter title, and couldn't. 
Too many words to describe. 
If you like Sweet and Salty (which we totally do in this household!)
You will LOVE this one!  And ITS GUILT FREE!

Good enough to take for a dinner dessert!

Adapted from the amazing Chocolate Covered Katie!!

Pretzel Bars
1 C Brown Rice Krispies
1/2 C Oat Flour (grind oats in blender)
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
5 Tbl of Honey or my choice is Brown Rice Syrup
3 Tbl All Natural Peanut Butter
1 C Chopped pretzels (GF if needed)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Hard Shell (recipe below)

Combine Dry ingredients in a bowl (except pretzels). Combine wet ingredients, you may need to microwave peanut butter to get it smooth and able to mix well. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and slowly stir to combine. Line a bread pan with parchment and press into bottom of pan. use a cup to REALLY PRESS hard and smoosh down. Take chopped pretzels and spread them on the top. Take your hands and/or a cup and press the pretzels into the bars. Put in freezer for about 1/2 hour (or overnight if you like).  

Drizzle Chocolate Peanut Butter Hard Shell on top and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips (or mini dark chocolate chips would be even better!). You could also sprinkle chopped peanuts on top! YUM Place back in freezer for about 15 minutes until hardened. Pull out of pan and chop into bars. Enjoy VERY SOON - they get gooier (is that a word??) and gooier as the time goes on!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Hard Shell
2 tsp Peanut Butter
1 Tbl Coconut Oil
Melt those two together in microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir and add:
3 tsp Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Stevia (or more if you need more sweetness)

Stir to combine and drizzle over bars.
