Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

IMG_6215

This past weekend I was stuck in the house since we just had a huge snow storm and I somehow got my car stuck in the snow around the corner from our house as I was driving to work.  Don’t ask!  After 3 days of it being stuck in the snow my hubby and I went and got it out. 

What I am trying to tell you is that I miss CA weather and when I am stuck at home I bake.  I find baking, in general, to be relaxing and the end result is typically yummy.  I decided to make something out of ingredients that we already had, since I couldn’t leave the house.  I came up with the idea of creating peanut butter pretzel balls.  Then I said to myself “Self, how can we make these pretzel balls better?”.  Dip it in chocolate, duh!!!

I was craving something sweet and savory, so this hit the spot.  If I knew how to make kettle corn I would have made that.  I might have attempted to make chocolate covered kettle corn.  Wouldn’t that be yummy?!?  Okay, so who has a easy recipe for kettle corn?  Please share!!

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

Ingredients:

2 cups crushed pretzels
2 tbls. powdered sugar
3/4 peanut butter
melted milk chocolate chips for dipping

Directions:

Mix the powdered sugar and peanut butter together. Mix in the pretzels until well combined.

Roll about 1 tablespoon of the pretzel mixture into a ball and place onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. (This part will get a little messy.)

Place the pretzel balls in the fridge for about an hour.

Dip the pretzel balls into the melted chocolate and place back on the baking sheet lined with wax paper. Top with crushed pretzels (if desired).

Return to the fridge to let it set.
