Peanut Butter and Pretzel Rocky Road

Tuesday 20 October 2020
Post in collaboration with SKIPPY® Peanut Butter

No bake Peanut Butter and Pretzel Rocky Road. Soft and squishy marshmallow combined with crunchy peanut, salty pretzels and creamy chocolate for a taste and texture sensation. Pretzels add an extra crunch to this already decadent yet easy to make peanut butter chocolate tiffin fridge cake.

22nd October 2020 is officially National Nut Day, a full 24 hours to celebrate everything nutty (just in time for my birthday on 23rd October!) For the ultimate ‘peanutty’ enjoyment, America’s famous SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is smooth, creamy and delicious. SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is available in Extra Smooth, ground especially fine so it melts in the mouth, or Extra Crunchy which contains large peanut pieces in a deliciously creamy mix. For this recipe it simply has to be SKIPPY® Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter with an added salty kick from pretzels and salted peanuts. Add in squishy marshmallow and bind it all together with creamy milk chocolate. It's an absolute match made in heaven. You don't even need to look up the flavor thesaurus to know the combination is going to taste awesome. 

What's different about SKIPPY® Peanut Butter?
  • Very easy to bake and cook with due to smooth texture 
  • A US heritage that spans more than 80 years. In 1933 Joseph Rosenfield changed the formula for peanut butter to create SKIPPY® Peanut Butter, which was less sticky and longer-lasting and doesn’t stick to the roof of your mouth. 
  • Every jar includes more than 90% sweet American Peanuts. Made only with high quality peanuts sourced from the USA, the sweeter American peanuts in SKIPPY® Peanut Butter have a finer grind which just melts in the mouth. The main source of peanuts for other brands in the UK is China and Brazil 

SKIPPY® Peanut Butter (RRP £2.40 per 340g jar) is available in Extra Smooth and Extra Crunchy varieties, which are currently available in major supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Costco, Ocado and International section of Tesco.
