  • 1 Cup butter , softened
  • 1 1/2 Cup cashew butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 Cup confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • 1 Lb semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Lb pretzel sticks
  • chopped walnuts , or other nuts, or sprinkles (for garnish)
In large bowl, combine butters, vanilla and salt using electric mixer. Add sifted confectioners' sugar one cup at a time, whipping to fully incorporate. Dough will be fluffy but firm; chill briefly if sticky.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Insert pretzel stick (or other stick) three-fourths of the way into each ball; place on parchment-lined baking sheets; refrigerate at least one hour or overnight.

Place chocolate in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds on high, stir and continue to microwave in 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring after each until chocolate is melted and smooth. Dip pops in melted chocolate up to the stick, allowing excess chocolate to drip off; sprinkle or dip bottom of pop in garnishes and return to parchment-lined baking sheet to allow chocolate to set or refrigerate pops briefly.

Store pops in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.




Notes:

* Any nut butter may be substituted; try almond, hazelnut or peanut butter.
* Bittersweet, milk or white chocolate may be substituted.
