Chubby Hubby Truffles

For Christmas I have decided to go baking/candy-making insane... and to kick things off, these chubby hubby truffles are idyllic.  They are peanut-buttery, pretzely, chocolatey, holidayey... well, they're just really good.  
Chubby Hubby Truffles
  • 1.5 cups crushed pretzel pieces
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs butter softened
  • 3 tbs powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate-peanut butter swirl chips
  • 1 tbs shortening
  1. Mix the pretzel pieces, peanut butter, brown sugar, and butter
  2. Add the powdered sugar and mix until fully combined
  3. Roll mixture into quarter-sized balls and refrigerate for at least half an hour
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and mix in the shortening
  5. Dip the cooled truffles to cover in chocolate and place back in refrigerator to cool
