chocolatey peanut buttery pretzely goodness

chocolate peanut butter pretzel balls

Make them.
Eat them.
Share them...or not.
Thank me later.

My review:

Plan to double the recipe. Maybe triple.
Eat a few. Give most of them away.
Your friends will love you for it.
(but only if they love chocolate and peanut butter...and if they don't, why are you still friends?)
Try them with milk chocolate chips.
Make sure the pretzel pieces are small.
Refrigeration is an important step.
Make them smallish (a melon baller works well).
Stick the whole thing in your mouth at once. No bites.
I doubled the salt. I love salty and sweet together.
Increase the powdered sugar a smidge too.

Most importantly, eat them quickly.

A moment on the lips, a life time on the hips.

I've got enough on my hips as it is.
I don't need to stick little chocolate peanut butter pretzel balls on there too.

Whew! I'm so relieved you have recovered from your birthday.

These look delicious. Hooray for me having all the ingredients and for being your friend!

These sound great. I love chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels. I plan on making these soon!

Your photo looks more tantalyzing(is that spelled correctly?)than the original. This treat hits so many spots for me! I don't know if I even dare make them until I have a huge family gathering.

And ewwwww...take that picture of me and my girth OFF your blog! I don't know why an escape to Zupas is paired with this recipe. Oh...maybe because I look like I have eaten 1637 of the little pretzle balls?!?!

Love this! I'll have to try the melon baller. That's a great suggestion.

I feel I should apologize for my recipe quantities. I rarely measure, so they're probably always off a smidge. Room temperature can affect the stickiness of the pb, too, requiring more/less powdered sugar.

Oh, how I wish I could send these down with a message to stay away from my hips. I would eat them all day, every day if I could.

Just so you know, I shared this on the make happy Facebook page today. Hope you don't mind!

Great photo, too. I'd love it if you posted it on the make YOU happy flickr page!

I saw her posting on FB. See, you are funny and going to be famous!!! Anyway, My husband loves them! I told him he can make them anytime he wants because it is a man friendly recipe.
