What Are No-Bake Truffles?

I’m no matchmaker, but I strongly believe that chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels are meant to be together. They make the perfect sweet and salty combination for this truffle.

These truffles are incredibly easy and delicious. In the center of these truffles are almonds, peanut butter and pretzels. That’s it! All you have to do is combine the ingredients, roll them into balls, coat in chocolate, and pop them in the fridge or freezer. Once they’re set, then they’re ready to eat.

And did I mention you don’t have to bake this sweet and salty chocolatey dessert? That makes it perfect for summer. (No making your house hot from a hot oven!) The whole family will love these Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles!

Key Ingredients

With just 5 ingredients, these truffles are super easy to make and taste amazing. They are sweet, salty, crunchy, and smooth — aka the perfect dessert! All you need is raw almonds, pure vanilla extract, salted pretzels, creamy peanut butter, and semisweet chocolate chips. That’s it!

I used melted semi-sweet chocolate chips to coat the truffles. You can use dark or milk chocolate if you have it on hand. You can either melt the chocolate over a double broiler or in the microwave for 30 seconds increments. If your chocolate is too thick to coat the truffles add a touch of water or milk to thin it out a bit.

How To Make Peanut Butter Truffles

To make these easy peanut butter truffles, simply pulse the almonds and pretzels in a food processor until ground. Toss with the peanut butter and vanilla extract, and place in the fridge to firm up. (This makes the truffles easier to roll). Roll into 8 truffles, and place in the freezer for about an hour or until frozen. Dip in the melted chocolate, and place back in the freezer until firm. Sprinkle with extra chopped pretzels, if desired.

This recipe makes 8 nice-sized truffles, however you can get more truffles if you make them a bit smaller. This Peanut Butter Truffles recipe can also be easily doubled or tripled for batch cooking or to feed a crowd!

Tips and Variations

  • Drizzle the truffles with melted white chocolate, peanut butter, or Nutella.
  • Add some chopped salted roasted peanuts for more savory peanut butter flavor.
  • Enjoy these truffles cold. I prefer these truffles cold out of the refrigerator. This also helps to keep the truffle together.

Storage and Freezing Instructions

  • Store prepared truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
  • Freeze Peanut Butter Truffles in an airtight, freezer-safe container or plastic bag for up to 6 months. Grab and go when you crave something sweet and salty!
