Delicious but NOT pretty!

Made these twice now, Hubby LOVES them but he is a huge fan of peanut butter and chocolate sweets. I think they r ok but not much of a peanut butter fan. Super messy. I tried my hardest to get them pretty. No such luck BUT in the sweets defense, they dont need to be pretty, taste is all that really matters... Second time arund i added the confectioners sugar and it seemed to help a BIT...

3 ingredients, tasty
Not as pretty but just as tasty...

That pic in the muffin tin is not the pic i submitted... Mine looks wayyyyy better.... Sorrie dont know whos pic that is....


I loved these, I used almond butter and they tasted just as good! The toothpick before freezing tip helps out a lot...I highly recommend double boiling your chocolate as it can scorch in the microwave.

tasty, quick & easy to make
Use a melon-baller

I don't mind these having a flat bottom, so I used a melon-baller to form the truffles before freezing. Mess-free, uniform size, easy!

Tasty But Not Pretty

Couldn't be simpler to make. I used dark chocolate, healthier. The peanut butter and pretzel mixture never froze hard enough to stay together and wouldn't roll into a ball, sort of just blobbed up. Next time I'm going to pour all the oil off a new jar of peanut butter before measuring so as to make it as solid as possible before mixing with the pretzels. And I will stab each ball with a toothpick before freezing to simplify the chocolate coating process, which wasn't pretty. I should have read the reviews more carefully before making.

Only three ingredients!
Wonderful Treat

I made these for Christmas last year. They taste good if you add more pretzel to the mix. Try to chop the pretzel well, but not too fine. I believe I used almost double the pretzel recommendation. The truffles I made weren't beautiful per se, rolling them in chocolate can be a little messy and definitely not uniform. However, with the right combination of pretzel and peanut butter they're delicious! Everyone loved them despite the less than lovely appearance.

Few ingredients, easy to make, nice combination of flavors
