I was going to a girls night and decided to bring the chocolate covered pretzel peanut butter balls, but I have a friend who is gluten free. That is when I decided to make these to take along for her. I personally like these better, but my husband disagrees and likes the other ones best.
They are really easy to make and totally kid friendly. My daughter helped roll the peanut butter balls in the mini chocolate chips.

These look delicious but my vote would be for the pretzel ones as well, you have to love that salty crunch.
