Almond Butter and Pretzel Truffles

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 truffles 1x


  • 1 cup pretzels, crushed (measure after crushing)*
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • sprinkles (optional)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Crush pretzels by pulsing them in a food processor or placing them in a resealable plastic bag and using a rolling pin to crush them into very small bits. Some bigger pieces are okay.
  3. Empty the crushed pretzels into a medium mixing bowl. Add almond butter and honey, mixing until fully combined. Place mixture into freezer for ~15 minutes to allow it to firm up.
  4. Using a tablespoon, shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place onto parchment lined baking sheet. Place back into freezer for another 15 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring periodically to ensure no clumps remain.
  6. Using a toothpick, dip each truffle into melted chocolate, gently tapping side of bowl to remove any excess. Place back onto parchment-lined baking sheet and immediately top with sprinkles, if desired. Repeat until all truffles have been coated.
  7. Refrigerate for ~15 minutes, or until the chocolate coating has set.


* use a gluten-free brand such as Glutino if needed.
