I made this recipe so many times this summer, and will have to say it is a fave of all our customers and me!  Try tucking a rolo, or a maraschino cherry in each one. Ohhh boy!
Makes approx 5 dozen

1 cup peanut butter*
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar
5 dozen miniature pretzel twists (about 3 cups)    Rolo candies, maraschino cherries optional
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable oil               DIRECTIONS
In a mixing bowl, beat peanut butter and butter until smooth. Beat in confectioners' sugar until combined.

Shape into 1-in. balls; You can tuck rolo candies, or maraschino cherries in each one and they are soooo good! Press one firmly on each pretzel. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until peanut butter mixture is firm, about 1 hour.

In a microwave-safe bowl or heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and oil.

Dip the peanut butter ball into chocolate. Return to baking sheet, pretzel side down. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in the refrigerator.

*Please Note: Reduced-fat or generic-brand peanut butter is not recommended for use in this recipe. You must also use BUTTER or the balls will not harden correctly. We also tucked maraschino cherries in some ... YUMMY!
