Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup crushed pretzels
  • ¼ Tbsp maple syrup
  • cups chocolate chips (dark, milk or semi-sweet)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix together your peanut butter, maple syrup and crushed pretzels. Then scoop out 1 tablespoon amounts and roll them into balls. Place them on a tray that's been lined with parchment paper and place the tray in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat it in the microwave at 30 second intervals until the chocolate has completely melted. (Make sure to stir in between each interval. Mine took about 1½ minutes.)
  • Next, remove the truffles from the freezer and dip them one by one into your melted chocolate. Use a small spoon to remove them and drain off any excess chocolate. Transfer your truffles back to the tray and sprinkle them with extra crushed pretzel pieces. Place the tray in the fridge until the chocolate is set. Serve immediately!
