Added brown rice cake crumbles and flaxseed

I added just enough crumbled up plain brown rice cakes for it to still hold together, whole wheat pretzels and Trader Joe's Crunchy Valencia Peanut Butter with Flaxseeds. They were quick and easy to make, rich and satisfying. Definitely a keeper.

Easy, delicious, adaptable
Perfect Valentine's Treat!

I made these for my family for Valentine's Day, and they were a hit with everyone! The peanut butter-pretzel-chocolate combination is genius, and seems to be well-liked by everyone. I love that it was only 3 ingredients (and usually ingredients you might already have around the house!), and even though there is some wait time, the amount of time it actually takes to prepare is very minimal. They didn't always turn out the prettiest, but they turned out the tastiest, and that's all anyone cared about!

Easy to make, 3-ingredient dish
Sweet, salty, crunchy, chocolatey...YUM!

So they didn't come out very pretty but were delish! I used dark chocolate chips and would definitely add more pretzel for consistency next time. I doubled the batch and got 35 bite-sized pieces gauging size by an actual baking teaspoon, not a kitchen teaspoon. But I can see where if you use a regular teaspoon or a melon baller, the recipe wouldn’t make it.

Satisfies every craving

Great recipe! Definitely needed to double. I recommend using dipping chocolate over chocolate dips, much easier to work with. I used smooth natural instead of crunchy by accident, so I needed to add quite a bit more pretzel to keep the crunchy consistency, that being my own mistake, they were very good.


I made these using smuckers crunchy natural pb and nestle tollhouse dark chocolate chips. NATURAL pb is KEY! I would agree with other comments such as its not really "truffle-like" but its chocolate, salty, crunchy, and nutty...whats not to love!? My friends devoured them.

Simple, Easy, Tasty Ingredients

Don't take the peanut butter

Don't take the peanut butter balls out of the freezer until the chocolate is melted and ready. Problem solved!
