Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

Over my sisters birthday weekend, she had made some treats for herself since I wasn't there to make the standard birthday cupcakes for her. She sent me a picture of them and I said they looked amazing and I asked her to write up a guest blog post for me about them......and after some patient waiting on my part it showed up in my email.  :) 
So, I'm not much of a baker. Great cook...baking too much patience is required for this girl!!
But then, it's my birthday. And I'm having a party to celebrate...yay! But wait, CB has left me. What's a girl to do???
Enter my November issue of Food Network magazine, and an amazing ad by Snyder's of Hanover pretzels.
This girl is saved!!! I mean this recipe is so easy (and delicious) that even I can make it and look good!
