Funny story: after my husband tasted these sweet and salty Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles, he immediately proposed. (I gently reminded him that we were already married.) I can't blame him, though--these rich truffles might make you do crazy things too. A quick and easy chocolate ganache is packed with salty peanut butter (I use crunchy to get the most bang for my buck) and finely chopped salted pretzels--so not only do they have the sweet-and-salty thing going for them, they also have the creamy-and-crunchy thing working too. And to top it all off, I finished them with a hefty pinch of flaky sea salt on top. Can you blame a guy for getting a little hasty with the marriage proposals after tasting these? All I can say is: make sure you're in good, safe company when you enjoy them!
