When a craving strikes, what is it you crave? Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy? Chocolate?

For me it can often be all of the above. And these cute little Gluten Free Sweet and Salty Truffles don’t disappoint. And they are portion controlled – always a smart thing when a craving strikes!

This recipe proves that candy making need not be complicated. If you can chop, stir, and melt things – you can make these candies.

These little truffles are simple, nut free (thanks to using Sunbutter), and if you use dairy free chocolate, dairy free too. And let’s not forget, they are so tasty!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup gluten free pretzels use divided
  • 1 cup Creamy or Crunchy Sunbutter
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows
  • cups chocolate chips semisweet, bittersweet, or dairy-free

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
  • Chop ½ cup pretzels finely. Chop the remaining pretzels very finely. Set both aside.
  • Put the Sunbutter in a mixing bowl and stir until creamy.
  • Put the marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute at high power. The marshmallows should be puffed up and very soft, not necessarily melted. Add the marshmallows to the Sunbutter along with the ½ cup chopped pretzels. Stir until well combined.
  • Roll heaping teaspoons of truffle mixture into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for one hour.
  • Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until most of the chocolate chips are melted, about 1 minute. Stir until smooth and glossy.
  • Using a spoon, dip the balls into the melted chocolate and coat. Place back on the baking sheet and sprinkle with a little of the very finely chopped pretzels. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set – about half an hour.
  • Can be made several days ahead, store in the refrigerator.
