First, mix your peanut butter and crushed pretzels together and stick in the freezer for 20 min. After they have been in the freezer, melt your chocolate in a bowl.

Start with rolling them into balls and dipping into chocolate and placing onto your parchment paper. You should have enough to make 20, after you have finished place them back into the freezer for an hour.
