What is Foodie Friday?
Allow me to elaborate for ya!
Last week, a few of the women I work with and I decided to take turns making new homemade treats for the office to enjoy every Friday. The idea for Foodie Friday surfaced when we were talking about how excited we all get for office birthday goodies. We figured why not make office treats a weekly occurrence?
I signed up for the first Foodie Friday and after much debate settled on a recipe I thought would be a crowd pleaser.
In my truffles I used crunchy peanut butter and Rold Gold honey wheat braided pretzel twists because they’re my all-time favorite pretzels. They’re salty, slightly sweet and 100 percent addicting. I definitely ate a couple of servings while making the truffles.
I combined the peanut butter with the chopped pretzels and placed them in the freezer to chill for a bit.
After dipping the peanut butter/pretzel mixture in melted milk chocolate, I placed the truffles in the freezer overnight (they’re sweating off the cold in the pictures below ).
These truffles taste so much like Reese’s peanut butter cups to me!
I popped one in my mouth as a breakfast appetizer and will be having one for dessert after lunch today as well.
A platter of these truffles and Oreo balls would be one heck of a contribution to any party. Something to keep in mind for Memorial Day weekend!
