SUPER BOWL CHOCOLATE GUINNESS PRETZEL TRUFFLES

Here's a great recipe for Super Bowl Sunday. I've posted this recipe before, but it deserves a repost because it's perfect for  Super Bowl Sunday. It contains all the Football Food Groups: Chocolate, Beer & Pretzels (or nuts).  These Chocolate Beer Truffles are rolled in Crushed Pretzels, but you can use crushed peanuts or crushed beer nuts. If you're a purist, you can always roll them in cocoa!

I know this Guinness Ad isn't for the Super Bowl or even for U.S. Football, but I love it!

CHOCOLATE GUINNESS PRETZEL TRUFFLES

Ingredients
3/4 cup Guinness
1 pound dark chocolate (65-75% cacao), chopped
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Crushed salted pretzels

Directions
Melt chocolate in top of a double boiler  or a saucepan over a saucepan with simmering water.
Stir in cream.
Slowly add Guinness, stirring to blend.
Cover and chill overnight.
Shape mixture into 3/4 inch balls using small scoop or melon baller or your hands- using about a tablespoon of ganache for each.
Roll in crushed Salted Pretzels (or crushed peanuts or beer nuts).
