Peanut Butter & Pretzel Truffles
Combine 1⁄2 cup crunchy natural peanut butter and 1⁄4 cup finely chopped salted pretzels in a small bowl. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Roll into 20 balls (about 1 teaspoon each). Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper; freeze for 1 hour. Melt 1⁄2 cup milk chocolate chips. Roll the frozen balls in the melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set.
