Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by C. Taylor

These are absolutely addictive! Sweet and salty with lots of crunch, and very easy to make. These should probably be stored in the fridge to keep from going soft or you could probably coat in an extra layer of chocolate if you wanted to go through the trouble.

Very easy to make. I had to use half milk and half semi-sweet but they still turned out good. Used a small scoop and got around 33 candies. Will make again but maybe tweak a little for personal taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pretzel (crushed into little pieces)
  • 3 cups crispy rice cereal (rice crispies)


  1. In a double boiler or microwave (on 50 % power, in a large bowl) melt the chocolate and peanut butter. If microwaving, start with a minute and then add additional time (30 secs at a time, mixing in between) until melted. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  2. Mix in the pretzels and rice cereal until everything is coated and well incorporated.
  3. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a lined cookie sheet and place in the fridge. Once hardened, you can transfer to a bag or container. These are best stored in the fridge.
