Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls
I really don't know how I survived without Pinterest all my life. I have found some of the most amazing, most creative recipes on there and have yet to try most of them. However, I came across these chocoloate covered peanut butter pretzel balls last week and knew I needed to try them immediately. I think I have mentioned a time or two that I really should not be allowed in the kitchen without a permit, so I won't bore you with the details; but in case you don't know already, it is really important to follow the recipe. Despite my inability to follow directions, they turned out amazing - they were the perfect blend of salty and sweet, creamy and crunchy, and chocolatey and peanut buttery. They are definitely a new favorite of ours; and even more so because not only are they really easy, but the ingredients are things we always have on hand so they can be made in a pinch, without making a special trip to the store! (Yes, I really am that easy to please.)
* Notes to recipe: I had to use more chocolate than the recipe calls for; almost 2 cups of chocolate, so have more on hand just in case! Work really fast when covering in chocolate - it gets stickier as it cools and is hard to get a smooth, even layer on.
