The thing about easy truffle recipes is that they are just too easy to make again and again and again. These are one of the most simple truffles to make in just a few minutes with just a few ingredients.
They are rich and decadent, thus becoming quite easy to eat.
They absolutely do not taste healthy and they certainly don’t look healthy….
So it’s kind of hard to stop at one. But that’s the beauty of these little morsels because you really don’t have to. Vegan, gluten free, high in protein, low in sugar, covered in chocolate…. why not have a few!
Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles (vegan and gluten free)
1/4 cup Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
3 Tablespoons Coconut Sugar
3 Tablespoons gluten free, sugar free Pretzels, crushed
1/2 cup sugar free Chocolate, melted
1 Tablespoon crushed Pretzels and Peanuts for garnish
Combine peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut sugar in a small bowl and stir until combined. Add the crushed pretzels and mix to combine. Roll the dough into small balls, about 1/2 inch but no bigger than 3/4 inch. Place on a plate and chill.
In a small dish, melt your chocolate. Remove the chilled balls from the freezer and dip or spoon the chocolate over the truffles. Top the truffles with the pretzel peanut mixture. Carefully place back on the plate or into a mini muffin liner. Repeat for all the other truffles. Chill for 15 minutes or until chocolate has set.
*If your dough is a bit too wet to handle, add a bit more crushed pretzels to the mix or allow to chill before rolling out.
