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!

CHOCOLATE GUINNESS PRETZEL TRUFFLES

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

Directions
Melt chocolate in top of double boiler or saucepan over 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).
