Chocolate Covered Dreams

There’s no better time than the holiday season, to take creamy peanut butter, crushed pretzels,  roll them together into balls, and then smother them in dark chocolate. It’s what holiday miracles are made of. Seriously. I looked it up and those are all of the ingredients of holiday miracles.

I decided to make these delicious, tempting, scrumptious treats for my undeserving lovely coworkers. Haha, I’m just joking. Sharing is caring and all that made up jazz. You can’t make a treat like these and then eat them all in one sitting, while watching The Singoff finale on NBC. I mean, you can, but maybe you shouldn’t? I don’t know. Now that I think about it, that sounds pretty awesome and I probably should’ve just done that.

I used this recipe from Ghiradelli. Happy Eating!
