Tasty peanut butter filled pretzel balls.
I discovered Trader Joe's peanut butter pretzels while I was in New York and really craved them when I got home. Luckily, the shop near me sells American peanut butter, so I decided to figure out how to make my own!

These aren't as crunch as the ones we bought but they do taste great and any peanut butter addict will love them.
