How does 3 ingredients sound to yield one of the yummiest treats you’ll have all year? Peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate chips are all you need! Now that I’ve got your attention….. ? This truffle like treat is great for the holiday season! I used a generic type semi-sweet chocolate that hardens quickly and stays firm even in room temperature. So, you can pack these up in little favor bags and give them away during the holidays without worrying about them melting. Or if you decide to keep them all to yourself, I promise you will be munching on these all day.
This dessert is so easy to make and requires zero baking. I’ll usually start by crushing the pretzels using a masher like this one. I like to keep some larger pretzel chunks here and there to give the finished product a nice crunch. Usually crunchy peanut butter is also preferable for this reason.
I would say the hardest part about this recipe is the waiting. You’ll have to freeze the balls for about an hour before you can coat them with chocolate. It’s the only thing that will guarantee they won’t fall apart when covered with warm chocolate. But once that parts over, you can pretty much start eating them as soon as you dip them since the chocolate hardens almost immediately. Just try not to eat them all right then and there. It will be tough. Check out the full recipe below!
