  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Line a baking sheet or tray with waxed paper. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter and cream cheese. Microwave, uncovered, on high (100% power) for 30 seconds or until mixture is slightly softened, stirring once. Stir in powdered sugar and pretzels. Shape the peanut butter mixture into 1-inch balls. Place balls on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and freeze for 15 minutes or until firm.
  2. Place Ghirardelli(R) Dark Melting Wafers in a microwave-safe container. Microwave at half power or defrost setting for 30 seconds. Stir thoroughly (product keeps its original shape until stirred). If not completely melted, continue to microwave at 15 second intervals and stir until smooth. Overheating will cause wafers to burn.
  3. Using a fork, dip balls into melted mixture, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Place dipped balls back on baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.

Wow, I did not like these. I so wanted to like them, but there was just something off with the combination of the peanut butter and cream cheese. Interestingly enough, they actually look like th...

We did not care for these at all and the pretzels got soggy.

My family did not like these ... they all wanted the old family recipe peanut butter balls without pretzels.

I made these bonbons with NO changes whatsoever to the recipe for a company potluck, and they were a big hit. I was initially concerned about adding the cream cheese since some other revie...
