    Preheat oven to 350°F. Transfer pretzels to a plastic zip-top bag and seal. Crush pretzels by rolling a rolling pin over the bag until pretzels are very fine. Transfer pretzel crumbs to a large bowl. Add melted butter and sugar and mix until combined. Press into 6 mini tart tins or one large pie. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Set aside to cool.

    Heat 1/4 cup cream in the microwave until hot. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth and combined. Divide chocolate into pie tins. Spread over the bottom. Chill in the fridge until set.

    Whip the remaining cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside. Beat peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Gently fold whipped cream into peanut butter.
