Yield: 4 snacks


  • 4 washed jalapeño peppers, sliced in half lengthwise with seeds and membranes removed
  • 4 Tbs peanut butter
  • 8 pretzel sticks


  1. Carefully remove all seeds and membranes from inside the peppers (leave a few for more heat!). On each half, spread ½ Tbs peanut butter. Add pretzel sticks for antennae, and enjoy!
  2. Tip: use mini pretzel twists as wings to create jalapeño butterflies or get creative with your favorite cereals or dried fruits!
