UM UM!!!! Sounds great with the salty and sweet. Sprinkle with crushed peanuts too!

I wonder if my husband would like these. He really loves the chocolate covered pretzels. These are a pretty different, but they seem like they be just as good, with the added peanut butter flavor. If the peanut butter is over powering, he may not like them as much. But, maybe I could adjust the recipe to include more chocolate.

Hi there! You can reduce the amount of peanut butter to 3/4 cup and dip the entire ball in chocolate (instead of drizzling), if you're looking for a more chocolaty flavor. :) Enjoy!

always make these for my kid's goodie boxes at Christmas

These are great but I recommend starting with a double batch. A single batch magically disappears in seconds.

Crush the pretzels really well -- that's what helps them hold together. Pretzel-loving hubby loved them!

Since I am a chocolholic, we doubled the amount of chocolate here and rolled the bites in the chocolate, completely coating them. Delicious with a nice crunch to them!

I made these for our Girl Scouts last night and the girls really liked them even though I forgot the chocolate. I didn't give it 5 stars because there were too many pretzel pieces causing them to crumble more easily. Chunky peanut butter also tends to be a bit drier too. Next time I make them I will add a 1/4 cup of regular peanut butter and 3/4 cup chunky and only 3/4 cup pretzels.

These were very good; however, the chocolate tends to break up and fall off as you are eating them. Se we HAD to make them again and this time we just put the chips in the mix before forming the balls. They are just as good.

yowsa! these were a snap to make and are yummy. plan to make these for my kids at christmas.

There was some confusion about the pretzels in this recipe. To simplify, we have changed it to 1 cup crushed pretzels. So, no matter what shape or how much you start with, you should end up with 1 cup crushed. Thank you!

I am like vaughps3315169.Mine would not stick together even after adding a little butter.I am a senior cook,and feel like i did everything right until I looked at the video.If you really pay attention they did not use all the pretzels.I finally poured my on to the wax paper and kept molding until I got it in an oblong shape.I hope it turns out when it comes out of freezer.If not,I have wasted time and money.

If that is the case it should say 2 cups crushed pretzels. It does not say that. It says 2 c of pretzels, crushed. Which actually means measure 2 c. & then crush them. For the record I think they meant the former, not the latter. :)

Oops.....sorry, looks like this discussion has already been had! Happy baking everyone.

I made this recipe to the tee. But, the balls would not hold their shape as directed or shown in the recipe. I am a very skilled cook, but none of my adjustments I attempted helped the recipe along. Good idea....Terrible recipe.

logic says that it is 2 cups of crushed pretzels. otherwise, the amount of pretzel would vary dramatically based on the shape and size of pretzel that you start with.

Recipe clearly states 2 cups pretzels crushed, that means crush them before measuring you can also use crushed corn flakes crushed graham crackers even rice krispies It is personal preference if you prefer to use creamy or crunchy peanut butter the crunchy gives it much better texture and a little crunch makes it taste even better

The Questioin about the Crunchy peanut butter. I have found when a recipe calls for crunchy peanut butter, it always turns out better when you FOLLOW the recipe to the TEE!!!!! Also a Small jar of Crunchy peanut butter DON'T cost that much. And it gives you enough for another batch, when you find out these are so good. I haven't made them; but my sister has!!!! Thank you.

Why, when I try to read the recipes, do I have to constantly get rid of an ad. This happens b4 I can read one sentence. This is aggravating.

Make sure you do not hover over the green text in the recipe area..If you do the screen will appear..

Does it have to be chunky peanut butter?

I don't see why you couldn't use creamy peanut butter. I think the nuts just add more texture. You can do whatever makes you happy.

do you have to use chunky peanut butter because all i use is creamy, i hate to buy chunky just for this recipe

is that 2 cups of pretzels before crushing or after crushing???

I think it is 2 cups, and then crush. Very good question.

Yes. Measure 2 cups pretzels, then crush them. If it were meant to be the other way, it would say 2 cups crushed pretzels.

DRUST is correct. It is 2 cups of pretzels, then crushed.
