Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles by
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used Costco’s brand)

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

to 1/2 cup finely chopped salted pretzels

Combine peanut butter and pretzels in a small bowl. Chill in the freezer until firm, about 15 minutes (this step not necessary if you use more pretzels).
Roll the peanut butter mixture into 10 balls about 2 teaspoons each. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and freeze until very firm, about 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate morsels in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for additional 20 second intervals if necessary.
Roll the frozen balls in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
Recipe Notes: I added only 1/4 cup pretzels at first but the mixture was way to wet so I increased it to 1/2 cup. Start at 1/4 cup and depending on how wet your peanut butter is continue adding. Also, I used a mini-food processor to chop my pretzels finely but you could definitely do it my hand as well.
