Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

I’m a little obsessed with holidays so I have this websitebookmarked that has all of the National Days listed for every day of the year. It just gives me an excuse to have a party or bake something for that special day. Today happens to be National Pretzel Day and in honor of that I made these fabulous peanut butter pretzel turtles. This were dangerously too easy to make. Most likely you will have all of the ingredients and can whip them up right now. Something about the salty pretzels and the sweet chocolate combo is to die for.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used Costco's brand)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped salted pretzels
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

Instructions

  1. Combine peanut butter and pretzels in a small bowl. Chill in the freezer until firm, about 15 minutes (this step not necessary if you use more pretzels).
  2. Roll the peanut butter mixture into 10 balls about 2 teaspoons each. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and freeze until very firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Melt chocolate morsels in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for additional 20 second intervals if necessary.
  4. Roll the frozen balls in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Recipe Notes: I added only 1/4 cup pretzels at first but the mixture was way to wet so I increased it to 1/2 cup. Start at 1/4 cup and depending on how wet your peanut butter is continue adding. Also, I used a mini-food processor to chop my pretzels finely but you could definitely do it my hand as well.
