Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

Stop the presses. I know I have used the phrase amaze-balls a few times to describe my recipes, but these are truly amazing balls! I brought them into my office today and they were a hit! Which makes me believe that the outside world actually likes my food, not just me and my roommates :).

These salty, sweet balls are the prefect thing to bring to the office, a party or especially great to make around Holiday time. I always made Peanut Butter balls with my Mom for Christmas, and these are reminiscent of those, with a twist. The only part that takes a while is to dip all the balls into the chocolate. The original recipe only made 12 (please), so I tripled it. It made approximately 45 medium sized balls. 


  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter 
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 3 cups crushed salted pretzels
  • 16 oz baking chocolate 
  • Cooking spray


Combine peanut butter, confectioners sugar, butter and pretzels. Mix until well combined. 

Spray hands with cooking spray and grab about a half tablespoon of the dough. Roll into a ball. Continue with this method until all of the dough has been rolled into balls. Spray your hands every 3-4 balls to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands. Place on a baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes. 

Once the balls have set, melt 8 oz of chocolate in a saucepan over low heat (I like to melt half the chocolate at a time so it's easier to work with and doesn't get clumpy too fast). Dip the balls into the chocolate with a toothpick, making sure to cover completely. Repeat until all of the balls are covered! Voila!
