photo (30)Ingredients:

1½ c gluten-free pretzels, crushed
½ c creamy peanut butter
1 tbsp Smart Balance Light butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
Pinch salt
3 tbsp powdered sugar
1 c Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable shortening

Directions:

1. Place pretzel pieces into a large Ziploc bag and crush into small pieces with a rolling pin.
2. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and salt. Mix until well combined. Add pretzel pieces and powdered sugar and mix thoroughly   
3. Line a small baking sheet with wax paper. Scoop about 2 tsp worth of peanut butter mixture onto baking sheet (a small cookie scoop works best for this) and form into ball.  Repeat until all mixture has been used.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
4. After chilling peanut butter balls, pour chocolate chips and shortening into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 50% power in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until completely melted and smooth.
5. Dip each peanut butter-pretzel ball into the melted chocolate, one at a time, until completely coated with chocolate. Repeat with all of the peanut butter-pretzel balls.
6. Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and again chill for at least 30 minutes. Garnish with a drizzle of melted peanut butter (microwave a few tbsp of peanut butter until melted, about 15-20 seconds) and crushed pretzels.
7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
