AMAZING peanut butter pretzel truffles

Seriously, AMAZING! I made this for a work party and they were a huge hit! I had about 5 requests for the recipe and people begged me to make more of them!

Adapted from
The Girl Who Ate Everything

Makes 10 truffles, so I suggest doubling the recipe. I promise you'll want more!

Ingredients:
• 1 cup creamy peanut butter
• 1.5 cups finely crushed pretzels
• 1 cup chocolate chips
• shredded coconut (optional)
• vegetable oil

Mix peanut butter and crushed pretzels in a bowl. Cool in the freezer for about 15 minutes until firm.

Roll the peanut butter mixture into small balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet covered in wax or parchment paper. Freeze balls for about 30 minutes or until firm.

Pour chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl with a little vegetable oil. Microwave for about 30 seconds and then stir. If chips aren't melted enough, microwave again for another 15 seconds.

Roll frozen peanut butter balls in melted chocolate. As an optional topping, roll them in shredded coconut after dipping them in chocolate.

Refrigerate truffles until ready to serve.



Take a bite of this heavenly truffle!

  6. Oh my gosh, these sound so easy and the flavor sounds delicious. I would have to double the batch because I'd probably eat several in one sitting. I'm definitely going to make these to give to people at Christmas.

  26. I ate too much turkey last night...these were supposed to be on tickled pink (I messed myself up...I was not even going to do tickled pink and then did, but made lots of boo-boos)...I will add them next week if that is OK. Sorry.
