Chubby Hubby Truffles

Once again, Pinterest is amazing. If not for my little virtual bulletin board, I probably wouldn’t have stumbled across these gems. They are peanut butter-pretzel truffles, or as I aptly named them – Chubby Hubby Truffles, after the famous Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. I consumed more pints of that stuff than I care to admit during my college days. It was a staple in our little mini-fridge’s (even mini-ier) freezer. Being the peanut butter lover that I am, there is absolutely no way I could resist chocolate-covered, peanut butter-filled pretzels swirling around in ice cream. Throw in sleep deprivation, lackluster cafeteria food, cram sessions and broken hearts (not only did you wallow in your own relationships gone bad, but you had to help your friend polish off a pint when some boy broke her heart too – that’s what friends do), and I probably should have skipped college and just bought stock in Ben & Jerry’s instead. So when I saw my favorite ice cream in truffle form (and so incredibly easy to make), I whipped them right up. The sweet and salty, smooth and crunchy – it all dances around in one little truffle. I dare you to only eat one. (Hint: It’s impossible, I tried and failed miserably.)

These are made very much like the traditional buckeyes – a mixture of peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar rolled into balls and then dipped in chocolate (a Christmas staple!). The kicker is the crushed up pretzels – they add a kick of salty and a little bit of crunch to what is already an unbelievable treat. And you all know that next to peanut butter and chocolate together, the other thing I can’t resist is a sweet/salty combo. Bonus for me – I get it all right here in one little truffle!

These are super easy to make – no special equipment needed. Just a bowl, a spoon and your ingredients. Be forewarned – you’ll probably “accidentally” leave some of the mixture in the bowl which will require you to not waste it and eat what’s left with said spoon. We don’t want to waste, now do we?

Peanut Butter-Pretzel Truffles

Yield: About 18 truffles

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Peanut butter-pretzel truffles created as an homage to my favorite ice cream, Chubby Hubby, by Ben & Jerry's.

Ingredients:

1½ cups pretzel pieces
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
Pinch salt
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup milk or semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

Directions:

1. Put the pretzel pieces into a resealable plastic bag and crush into very small bits (a rolling pin works great for this).

2. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and salt. Stir until all of the ingredients are completely blended and smooth. Add the pretzel bits to the peanut butter mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the powdered sugar and mix until completely combined.

3. Line a small baking sheet with wax paper. Using a small cookie scoop, or about 2 teaspoons worth of peanut butter mixture, gently shape into a ball with your fingertips. Place the ball on the wax paper-lined cookie sheet and repeat with the remaining peanut butter mixture. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.

4. When ready to dip the truffles, microwave the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening together in a small bowl at 50% power in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until completely melted and smooth.

5. Working one at a time, dip one peanut butter-pretzel ball into the melted chocolate and use a fork to roll it around, ensuring that it is completely coated with chocolate. Let any extra chocolate drip off and place back on the wax paper-lined sheet. 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 and crushed pretzels, if desired. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

        You might want to note that the pretzel measure is prior to breaking them. I broke them first and ended up with too much pretzel and they didn’t hold together well. Tasted good though. I’ll try these again

    Michelle,
    I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I just registered so that I can start leaving comments for all the wonderful things I’ve made from your site. I made these last week to add to my cookie trays. I quadrupled the recipe because I already decided they sounded too good for just one batch. I grew up on buckeyes and loved the idea of the extra crunch and salt in these. I did need to add more powdered sugar to get the texture right at those quantities. It made 91 wonderful truffles. Dipped some in milk, some in semi sweet. I drizzled melted peanut butter chips on top and started topping with crushed pretzels because I loved the look…then realized that for the storage time I needed, the pretzels would get stale…so I stopped…bummer! The only change I would make for next time is to add a little more salt which might have gotten thrown off in the quadrupling, or maybe sprinkle a tiny bit of really coarse salt on top to get the perfect sweet salty combo…not that the 91 I’ve made will get a single complaint from my family or any of my cookie tray list recipients…Thank you for a really fun recipe!

I don’t know how you got them so round, they were sooo sticky and messy to roll and with the little pretzel pieces they came out a bit lumpy. I will make these again for sure.

    My kids and I made these last night and I just thought they were okay, even though I usually love chocolate-PB combinations. One problem is that I read 1 1/2 cups of “pretzel pieces” as the chopped ones, so I ended up with way too much pretzel and had to double everything else then. I think that’s supposed to be 1 1/2 cups of pretzels and then you make little pieces out of them? They were a bit too salty and rich. I may have over-crushed the pretzels too. I think they might have been better with larger pieces instead of finely crushed pretzels. The only change I made was to use cashew butter instead of peanut butter because we have a peanut allergic child. Maybe store-bought PB would have made a sweeter truffle since there’s usually a lot of added sugar? We dipped some in melted white chocolate chips and some in melted dark chocolate chips and then drizzled the other color on top and sprinkled pretzel bits on top. They looked really impressive but I’m going to try some other truffle recipes next.

    I made EIGHT batches of these yesterday to give out at our Christmas Eve celebration. I think they are wonderful. I used extra thin “Utz” pretzels that I measured in a dry 1 1/2 cup measuring cup. I pressed down on them slightly and then crushed them down (not into a powder, but small pieces) in a gallon bag. I was doubling the ingredients (or so I thought) but forgot to double the brown sugar and powdered sugar the first two times. I added extra powdered sugar later on since the mixture wasn’t stiff enough to scoop out. I then just mixed up the other batches using the correct measurements and then mixed all eight batches together in a large bowl to help ensure all truffles were consistent. The finished product reminds me of the awesome peanut butter pretzels from Edward Marc! I am sure they will be a big hit. I have to say I was worried that the pretzel pieces were going to get soggy but I ate one for breakfast (bad girl!) this morning and they were as crunchy as they were yesterday. Thanks for yet another great recipe and a Merry Christmas to everyone!

    I made this over Christmas and they definitely came out lumpier than the photo. Next time I’ll crush the pretzels a bit more as the larger pieces didn’t incorporate into the mixture that well. Also I think I’d make the peanut balls a little smaller since one you dip them in chocolate they do increase in size. They were definitely a huge hit though!

    I forgot about this blog until I saw it on this blog today. I have to make these. They look TDF-Good! My favorite combo – PB and Pretzel. What could be better. My son is allergic to nuts so I would not normally make something like this BUT this weekend my son will be out-of=town so I will make these for my hubby and I. I’ll get back to you on it. I bet they are amazing. The picture looks like something out of a candy shop.

    I made a batch of these a few weeks ago, and they were so good that they didn’t last but 10 minutes in my house!! For NYE I made a bit larger of a batch… I made 125 of them. No. lie. And come the next morning, there were only 4 left! I get the feeling that… maybe… everyone kind of liked them ;) THANKS for such an AMAZING RECIPE!!!!!

    Anyone know if these freeze well? I’m making a whole bunch of sweet nibbles for my son’s birthday party and am trying to make some things that I can make and freeze ahead of time! Thanks!

      I haven’t frozen them, but you could definitely make them a week or so in advance and just refrigerate.

      Hi Heidi, Definitely a “regular” peanut butter like JIF. Enjoy!

    Just made these for my scrawny hubby! He gives them an A! That is rare for him. Hopefully these chubby him up. I’m also bringing them to easter brunch this weekend. Thank you for a one-bowl recipe that does not require a food processor, and thank pinterestCom.com for the introduction!

    Do you have to use veggitable shortning or can it be supstitited for plain shortining or butter?

      Hi Araella, I’m not sure what “plain” shortening is, but any type of shortening, or I’ve heard people have had success with coconut oil.

    Instead of making these into truffles, I skipped the chocolate-coating part and added chunks of these to vanilla bean ice cream with a fudge swirl…modified Chubby Hubby ice cream! It was delicious :)

    Hi! I was wondering is there possibly anything to substitute the vegetable shortening when melting chocolate? thanks!

      Hi Tina, You can substitute an equal amount of coconut oil in place of the vegetable shortening.

    Hi! I am a long time reader, your recipes and insight are SUCH a lovely addition to our family! Would you say this truffle recipe is basically comparable to the buckeye recipe on your website except the truffle recipe has pretzels? It seems like the buckeyes are super sweet with all the powdered sugar, but it makes a ton more than the truffle recipe. Thanks for any insight.

      Hi Alicia, Yes, this is very similar to buckeye recipes.
