Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup plus1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon margarine, room temperature
1 cup crushed pretzels
2 cups chocolate chips
Package popsicle sticks, optional

Stir together the peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar. Add margarine and stir in the crushed pretzels. Form into 1 inch balls. Gently, push popsicle sticks into balls. Freeze for 30 minutes. Melt chocolate in pot or in a double boiler over a very low flame, stirring often or alternatively, in the microwave cook it in 30-second intervals and stir after each interval.

Using a spoon and holding the popsicle stick, dip the balls in the melted chocolate and refrigerate until set. Tip: Use a spoon and dollop chocolate over the balls. The balls are heavy on the sticks so you must guide them with the spoons or they will fall off the sticks.
