These are delicious and SO easy to make! The crunch of the pretzel makes this extra special. They also look really cute when served in mini muffin wrappers.
I thought these were okay. I wasn't real fond of the slight after taste of the cream cheese, compared to regular peanut butter bonbons. I also didn't much taste the pretzel like I expected. I blended them in my Vitamix, on speed 3, for about 15 seconds or so. That's a huge time saver. There were plenty of 1/4" sized bits after doing that. I didn't think the filling was really sweet, nor did I get that sweet salty balance. The main flavor was pb and cream cheese. I changed the servings to 4 to try the recipe, since I had the ingredients in the house, and I got 9 bonbons as the yield would suggest by making 1/4 of the recipe. For ease I had to dampen my hands to work with the pb filling and I used a cookie scoop to shape them, which worked well. From a taste stand point, I will have to see what others think. I am always looking for new holiday candy ideas. ty
Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate! These are so easy and a sure winner at your holiday party. Make them!
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 they would be good, I was so disappointed in how they tasted. I followed the recipe exactly as written, but the combination of these ingredients just didn't end up in a good final product. I agree with almost every point made by Holiday Baker in her review, the filling wasn't right. The pb and cream cheese dominated and not in a good way. It didn't taste at all like a bonbon, just like pb with cream cheese. Sometimes when companies promote a recipe designed to sell their product, the recipe just isn't that great. This is one of these instances. Time to take this one back to the lab!
only used 1/4 of the amount of the chocolate
These were a huge hit. Easy to make and yummy!
Wonderful and simple to make! I added about 1/2 tsp. vanilla to peanut butter mixture. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly. Don't understand any of the negative comments. Ghiradelli is clearly the best!
I wasn't excited about the flavor of the filling. Actually extremely disappointed with it. But since it was my money invested in the ingredients I took it upon myself to fix it with one tablespoon melted butter, one tsp. Vanilla extract, 1 tsp salt and 2 more tbls. Peanut butter. The salty sweet crunch became awesome and the weird cream cheese 5th was completely gone.
