I used regular Jif and made a double batch. Flavor is very good. I thought they tasted like crunchy Reese's peanut butter cups. Hubby said they were like Peanut M & M's that you didn't have to chew.

Single batch doesn't make 20. Someone was dreaming when they wrote that number.

Peanut stuff needed much longer in the freezer to be handle-able. I ended up using my smallest disher (like a mini-ice cream scoop) and scooping out the filling into a plate and freezing the balls. That worked much better than the way the recipe instructs.

I will make them again but use proportionally more pretzels to help stiffen the dough.

These are a great snack when a chocolate craving strikes! Under 100 calories each and they taste amazing. The freeze time was closer to a half hour and this recipe only produced about 10. Mine did not look as pretty as the picture, but were delicious!

Hi guys! I used unsalted pretzels and natural peanut butter and it was great! Some people said that the peanut butter is too gooey. To help, mix the natural peanut butter in its oil and that will help. It took about 20min to slightly freeze before you roll it up. But when you roll it up be quick as the peanut butter will slightly melt in your hand. Also, there was no way I could make 20 pieces like the recipe. It makes around 10 maybe 12 if you stretch it unless you make these really small. Nevertheless, these were great and quick. Since I am getting into a fitness regimen, eating only one of these a day will be a challenge. Cheers all!

Very easy and our new favorite - not too sweet. We used Peter Pan peanut butter which we usually use for the dogs but we were out of organic nut butter. I think you could use a little more pretzel for more crunch and salt. One of these is all you need to hit the sweet spot after a great dinner. Very little hands-on time so I made them while watching TV and did the steps during the commercials.
