Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/3 C chopped pretzels
1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 C melted chocolate

1. In bowl, mix peanut butter, pretzels and powdered sugar.
2. Microwave for 25 seconds and stir until fully combined.
3. Place in freezer or fridge until firm.
4. Using about a tsp of mixture, roll dough in hands to form small balls. (You should get between 12-18)
5. Then return balls to fridge or freezer until hardened.
6. While dough hardens, melt chocolate in double boiler or in the microwave for 30 second increments, stirring between each cycle.
7. Then using two spoons, dip balls in chocolate and coat. Place coated balls on a cookie sheet or tray and place in fridge after all balls are coated.
Enjoy your truffles!

These are best stored in an airtight container or bag in the fridge.

*These are also good with crunchy peanut butter. (use only 1/3 c of p. sugar with the crunchy p.b.)
* Also tasty with a little drizzle of honey… about 1/2- 3/4 tsp.
