What can be more heavenly than creamy peanut butter, salty pretzels, and rich chocolate? Ummm, yum! I saw these floating around the internet awhile back and I knew I had to give them a try. They are really easy, and make the perfect cute little gift or care plate for those that you love. Try them! You won't be disappointed.
Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles
Combine peanut butter and pretzels in a small bowl. Chill in the freezer until firm, about 15 minutes.
Roll the peanut butter mixture into 20 balls (about 1 teaspoon each). Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and freeze until very firm, about 1 hour. Roll the frozen balls in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
