Couple things to make this better . . .

These are really good. Using dark chocolate instead provides a yummy healthy alternative. Also, I found it worked best to freeze toothpicks in the little balls and use those to roll them around in the chocolate. It was easier and came out looking very pretty. Next time i would probably only take half out to work with at a time as they tend to thaw while your dipping them.

I didn't have pretzels so I use bread crumbs and added a little salt. You can also add powdered sugar to thicken the mixture up a bit and provide a bit of sweetness. That way you don't have to worry so much about turning to mush.

Easy, delicious

I haven't made yet but to those that say they were hard to role, I am going to try and freeze with a cocktail pick in them and see if it will hold it to dip, also it will keep the ball from getting warm in my hand..will post again to let you know how and if it works. I have another recipe that dips into chocolate and it is messy..I hope this works, It might help with the finish look too..

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
