I thought in honor of the holiday coming up I would dedicate this week to holiday desserts. I have three great recipes for you to try this week, all of which are great party favors or gifts. Last year, I made buckeyes for my friends and family, and they were a hit. This year, I wanted to do something similar but kick it up a notch. Enter...pretzel buckeyes.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. In a bowl beat putter butter and butter together until combined.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add sugars. Beat until combined. You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without it sticking to your hands. If needed, add more powdered sugar.
Roll the mixture into small bowls, about 1 teaspoon of mixture for each ball, and place on prepared baking sheet.
Sandwich the balls between two pretzels and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water, and stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
Dip each pretzel bite halfway into the melted chocolate and place on the prepared baking sheet. Chill and serve! This bite size dessert has the best of everything: creamy peanut butter, chocolate, and pretzels for crunch. I put four in a bag and gave as little holiday treats, people ate them up; literally!
