Inspired by my passion for peanut butter and chocolate, I combined a trusted recipe for peanut butter eggs with the salty crunch of pretzels. Now our kids have fun helping me make and eat these heavenly treats. -Gina Kintigh, Connellsville, Pennsylvania

"The smell of peanut butter and chocolate always brings my cookie-hungry family running to the kitchen," shares Pat Doerflinger from Centerview, Missouri. "The recipe is so quick and easy, I often stir up a batch while making dinner."
“This recipe has been in our family for many years,” writes Juanita Michael of Florence, Alabama. “The thing we like most about it is that it doesn't freeze very hard, and if you have any leftover, which we hardly ever do, you can place it in the freezer and it will stay slightly soft.”
This moist and tender cake is packed with pecans and sweetness. Although still not a "light" dessert, it has nearly a third fewer calories and 43 percent less fat than the original!
