Description

Smooth peanut butter and crunchy pretzels combine to give you a sweet and salty bite of goodness dipped in chocolate. Divine.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 5 Tablespoons Confectioners Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Room Temperature, Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Pretzels, Crushed
  • 5 ounces, weight Melted Milk Chocolate

Preparation

In a medium-sized bowl, stir together peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, unsalted butter and crushed pretzels.

Roll into 1″ balls and put them onto a tray. Freeze for 30 minutes, or until firm.

Melt chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Dip balls into melted milk chocolate and put them onto a parchment paper lined tray. Refrigerate until set.

Depending on size, you will end up with about 12 balls. I recommend that you double this recipe!

I have a question about this recipe. It calls for 1 cup of pretzels, crushed. So is that a cup measured out, and then crushed, or do you crush the pretzels and then measure out one cup?

Is it really only 1/2 cup peanut butter?

Those look so yummy!
I recently came across a similar recipe, but it only called for PB, pretzels and chocolate. Do you think the butter and sugar are essential?

These were the best peanut butter balls! I made them twice last Christmas, and both times got rave reviews.

These were very good but I have a one inch scoop and I only got 11 one inch balls. I would double this.
