Tried For The First Time

I accidentally used semi-sweet chocolate chips but I think they still turned out delicious. Aside from the chocolate, it's not super sweet but not every treat has to be, in my opinion. I enjoy them and would make them again.

Delicious, low sugar
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!
