Peanut Butter Nutella Pretzel Tart

Peanut Butter Nutella and Pretzel Crust Tart recipe
I don’t even know where to begin here.
One of my kids favorite snacks would be pretzels dipped in nutella and peanut butter. 
And, those said kids are now in school. So I think it’s time to classy that little snack up a bit.
The sweet and salty pretzel crust combined with the nutella fudge and drizzled peanut butter is like a party in your mouth. Seriously. Chew slowly or you might end up devouring this entire tart.

I have no words for this. But maybe that’s just because I’m too busy trying to keep the drool from leaking out of my slightly agape mouth. Thanks so much for sharing! I have a bunch of homemade peanut butter to use up, and this will be perfect.


Aimee August 27, 2012 at 10:30 am

Good thing that drool stays on your side of the screen ;) haha!!!

I’ve never head pretzels with peanut butter and Nutella! Why haven’t I thought of that snack, wow, I’ve been totally missing out! Love the tart! Looks beautiful!


Megan August 30, 2012 at 5:00 pm

When I studied abroad in Europe, I would eat pretzels and nuttela for dessert all the time – and now you throw peanut butter in there, these are genius! Thanks for sharing.


Cindy August 31, 2012 at 5:42 pm

So many wonderful flavors. this looks delicious.


VickiT August 31, 2012 at 11:31 pm

This looks awesome Aimee. Thank you. I came over here from Tasty Kitchen to see if you had this posted here too. I needed to double check an ingredient. Over there you have the Garnish listed as 1/2 CAN peanut butter. I figure it was cup but had to check to be sure.

Thank you for this. It really does look good.


Our Pinteresting Family September 1, 2012 at 12:46 am

I’ve never tried Nutella…but this recipe might be the reason to give it a go. It looks amazing. Found you at Tatertots & Jello. :) Megan


Mo September 2, 2012 at 7:54 pm

YUM! Just pinned it and will be making soon since I have all these ingredients in my pantry right now…


Ali @ September 3, 2012 at 12:27 am

Love all of your recipes!! I love to bake and want to tr each and everyone of them :-) attempting this one on Friday just a quik question what kind of butter salted/unsealed and what kind of pretzels did you use? Any tips?
Thank you xx Megan


aimee @ shugarysweets July 18, 2013 at 5:43 pm

I always use unsalted butter in my recipes, that way I can control the amount of salt added. As for the pretzels, I use whatever is in my pantry, usually mini twists! ENJOY!!


Micha February 8, 2014 at 8:55 am

Would you keep this refrigerated if you aren’t going to serve right away? Or room temperature? Looks AMAZING!


aimee @ shugarysweets February 8, 2014 at 9:34 am

I would keep it out, but either way works fine!


Jodie March 25, 2014 at 9:03 pm

I don’t have a tart pan. Can you use a pie pan and if so what size?


aimee @ shugarysweets March 26, 2014 at 8:28 am

I think a pie pan would be too small unfortunately.


Tiffany July 9, 2014 at 1:44 pm

This is a good recipe and a tasty dessert, but I feel it falls short a little of true decadence. I could hardly taste the nutella with all of the milk chocolate morsels. My guests liked it well enough, but didn’t even realize it was nutella. They thought it was just chocolate, pretzel and PB (which are 3 yummy ingredients on their own). If you are a nutella addict, I might increase that amount and perhaps even do a mix of semi and milk morsels.

As for the look of the dessert, I had my PB too warm as it pooled all over the pie instead of staying where I drizzled. There went my visions of grandeur with a fancy looking dessert!

Thanks for the recipe!


aimee @ shugarysweets July 9, 2014 at 6:01 pm

Thanks for the feedback Tiffany! I appreciate your honesty and your suggestions!


Tiffany Lewis July 9, 2014 at 6:15 pm

I can’t wait to play around with this more. It even might be fun to do a thin layer of the chocolate, then a straight up layer of PB then repeat for a fun striped look! Or even completely cover with PB and drizzle with warm nutella! (Perhaps I just have a nutella problem!) Thanks for doing the dirty work and testing the crust and fillings, Aimee!!
