This is such a simple and easy dish to make for picnics and parties when you need to take a dish to share and your time is limited. I''ve made a few variations to the end result. I''ve added chopped pecans or walnuts to the top instead of the pretzel and simply lightly press them into the truffle top before it cools. And for a demonstration of holiday treats, I put a little green icing with a candy pumpkin in the center, or a white icing dollop with a little green star shape piped in the middle with a gold dragee on top to look like a Christmas tree.
