I came across a post on pinterest a few weeks ago for chocolate peanut butter pretzel balls. The recipe came from Make Happy, and all I did was switch it up a tiny bit. Here’s what I did…
Caramel, chocolate, peanut butter, pretzels balls:
1 3/4 C Pretzels
1/2 C Creamy peanut butter ( I used Peanut butter & co. ‘s white chocolate peanut butter )
1 Tbsp Earth Balance, softened
2 Tbsp Salted caramel sauce (also, found on pinterest here [I veganized it], but you could always use store bought!)
2 Tbsp Brown sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
2Tbsp Powdered sugar
1 C Semi-sweet chocolate chips ( I also used dark, because I love me some dark chocolate!)
Set your pretzels aside and mix your peanut butter, Earth Balance, caramel sauce, brown sugar, and salt.
Add your pretzels and then your powdered sugar.
Stick them bad boys in the fridge for about a half hour, and get your chocolate ready. I melted mine in the microwave because I’m too lazy to get a double boiler started. What I do, and it has never failed….unless I’m really out of it and forget it’s in the microwave….Is start off by putting it in for 30 seconds and then stirring it, and continue microwaving on 20 second increments, ALWAYS stirring in between.
And….last but not least….
