Recipe: White Chocolate + Pretzel Peanut Butter (vegan, gf)

Inspired by something I saw in the grocery store the other day, I came home with a sweet treat craving today and decided to make something quick and healthy.  This white chocolate + pretzel peanut butter can be made gluten free (as I did) by using Glutino's oh so tasty gluten free pretzels.  Otherwise use whatever pretzels you like.  Its great on crackers, apple slices or even by the spoonful.  And if you do buy Glutino pretzels, make sure you have a support person on hand who can make you put down the bag before scarfing it all up.  They are just too good to stop.

White Chocolate + Pretzel Peanut Butter
Makes approx 3/4 c

1/2 c unsalted shelled peanuts
1/4 c gluten-free pretzels (can use regular pretzels too)
2 tsp agave syrup
1 tbsp melted cocoa butter
pinch of salt

Pulse pretzels in food processor until fine crumbs form.  Transfer to another bowl.  Process peanuts in high powered food processor until completely smooth, approx 5 minutes.   Add agave, cocoa butter and salt.  Puree until smooth.  Add pretzel crumbs and process until well combined and smooth.  Transfer to air tight container to store.
