These tasted good but the natural peanut butter was much oilier than "regular" peanut butter - so they were soupy and hard to work with. Took much more attention time in the freezer etc. and they were not at all pretty because they didn't want to hold their shape. HOWEVER everyone said they tasted great and the plate was empty in no time. I will make them again & try regular peanut butter next time.
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. Pros: Few ingredients easy to make nice combination of flavors Cons: Doesn't come out as pretty as anticipated
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... Pros: 3 ingredients tasty Cons: Sloppy
Frustrating-almost impossible to dip I made a bunch of these thinking I would please a crowd. by the time the chocolate melts the peanut butter balls have already melted from the freezer and are impossible to dip!! What a waste of time and ingredients. Too bad the people that rated the recipe as is didn't actually follow the recipe. Cons: Melts before dipping in chocolate
It is a noble gesture to include the "added sugars" in the nutritional breakdown but in the grand scheme of things it is really the total carbohydrate grams that matter for people with diabetes to include them in their meal plan.
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. Pros: Easy delicious adaptable
So yummy! Thanks Eating Well! I actually prefer them with semi-sweet or dark chocolate. I agree with the others who claim the recipe doesn't make 20 truffle-sized balls (not sure I could make 20 balls of any size). I get 15-20 truffle-sized balls when I double the recipe. To the person who wondered about shipping them I think you could if you froze them first and packed them with a freezer pack depending on how far you want to ship them. They definitely don't do well out of the fridge for longer than about 2 hours I find.
