Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Waiting is the worst. Waiting for feedback on my screenplay. Waiting for spring. Waiting for a good guy to come along on Match and sweep me off my feet. Waiting. Lots and lots of waiting.

Is it just me or is life full of a lot of waiting? I feel like I’m always looking forward to the next thing, waiting for something amazing to happen.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Maybe it’s how our society is these days. We have come to expect answers and results immediately with our constant need for validation when it comes to anything and everything. We text and stare impatiently at the phone waiting for that little symbol to tell us we have a return message ready to be viewed. We post on social media hoping for like and replies and retweets. It’s crazy and even crazier to think that not too long ago we weren’t attached to our phones. Maybe life was better then, maybe it wasn’t.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

While I do all of this waiting, time vanishes before my eyes. I don’t understand how summer was months ago and the holidays and my birthday managed to vanish once again. What did I do with the past year? Better question: what will I do with this year?

That question remains unanswered as I wait, not too patiently, for my future to reveal itself.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

What you don’t have to do much waiting for are these easy to make Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles. They are salty, sweet, no bake goodness. The inside is a crunchy, gooey combination of pretzels and peanut butter and then the whole thing is coated in sweet white chocolate. I found these totally addictive and so did Dad who asked for seconds.

They are the perfect homemade Valentine’s treat for a special loved one and can definitely be made gluten free with gluten free pretzels or peanut free with almond butter. Don’t wait a single moment, make these Truffles today!

    You always get my attention but especially when you say ‘peanut butter’! These sound great!!

  5. First of all, these look ahhhhmazing Laura! Secondly, I think we are always trying to anticipate/live in the next moment which makes us not want to wait. It is difficult but it’s always so much more satisfying to live in the moment and appreciate where we are now 🙂

    Waiting can be so hard…and I agree, today’s world (with its constant and immediate information) makes it harder. These pretzels truffles look so good though!
