  • 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

Step 2

MIX ppowdered sugar, peanut butter, cocoa, whipping cream and vanilla in a medium bowluntil well blended.

Step 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.

Step 4

DIVIDE chocolate mixture into 12 equal portions, about 1 rounded tablespoon each. Roll each portion into 6-inch long rope. Place 2 ropes down center of each breadstick 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.
