Ready In:
24 truffles


  • 12 cup peanut butter
  • 12 cup chopped pretzels or 1/2 cup crushed pretzel
  • 12 - 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Combine the peanut butter and pretzels in a bowl until well combined. Place the bowl in the freezer for 15-30 minutes, or until firm enough to handle. Roll the mixture into roughly 20 balls (1 tsp each). Place on a pan lined with wax or parchment paper and place in the freezer for about an hour or until very firm.
  • Melt the chocolate and then remove the balls from the freezer. Dip the frozen balls into the melted chocolate and then refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • These softened pretty quick, so be sure to eat them soon after removing from the fridge!

    A great little recipe. I put my "batter" in the freezer for a good 45 minutes so that it was easier to work with. Hint - dust your hands with icing sugar in between rolling and it won't be as sticky on your hands. After dipping in chocolate, I sprinkled a bit of finely crushed pretzels over the top of each ball. Thanks for the recipe!

    These are AMAZING! I didn't find them that messy. Froze the balls overnight, then used a fork to roll them around in the chocolate. The chocolate hardened nicely and I didn't need to refrigerate them.

    These are SO fun to make, super messy, we loved it! They are also very tasty, and they satisfy all of my cravings! Salty sweet= AWESOME! Only complaint is that they aren't as pretty as the picture haha. But it's always a fun messy thing for the kids to do!!

    Easy to make and enjoyed by my family. These could easily be made gluten-free suitable by using gf pretzels and ensuring gf peanut butter and chocolate is also used. Reviewed for Pick A Chef (PAC) October 2012. Photo also to be posted
