Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Sounds heavenly, right?

who wants a cute little truffle?
They are.
after I dove in and swam around a little

I must give credit where credit is due. Jessica, a.k.a., master of all things sweet, is who provided me with ย this simple recipe. And it doesn’t disappoint.

I challenge you to find a room with three people who all don’t like Reese’s peanut butter cups. ย It won’t happen. Unless you surround yourself with loonies on a regular basis.

don’t slobber all over your keyboard. just go make some.

All you need:

  • 1/4 finely chopped salted pretzels
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used my new favorite, Naturally More. go get that, because it’s got a fantastic flax seed crunch to it)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate, but dark chocolate would’ve been even better)

I found crushing the pretzels in a ziplock baggie to be most effective. And great stress relief.

don’t chop them finer than this. I almost wish I had bigger pretzel pieces.
Combine peanut butter and pretzels in a small bowl. Chill in the freezer until firm, about 15 minutes. 

Roll the peanut butter/pretzel mixture into little balls. I made them smaller than necessary… because who doesn’t want MORE truffles for a little less guilt? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Place on a baking sheet (lined with parchment or wax paper for less mess) and freeze until very firm.
Roll the frozen balls in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set.
Thanks to my Aunt Nancy and the Cupcake Kit she gave me (which I’m SO excited to use once I finally have the time to make some little cuppycakes!), I had adorable little wrappers for the truffles.
my aunties spoil me with the best gifts.
the end result was a fancy-tasting peanut butter cup.
cha-ching!
Meggy gave her stamp of approval.
I wish I thought to take a picture of my practically empty Naturally More peanut butter jar

I’m choosing to blame the truffles.

Not my baby spoon-fulls.

That I may or may have not stolen from the jar…

several times a day.

I’ve been veryย bLyssfully busy! ๐Ÿ™‚
